Specially selected for the 2016 Feis Ile comes this peaty bottling of Finlaggan, with a vintage distillation of 2006 and bottled in April 2016 by The Vintage Malt Whisky Co. Ltd, Glasgow.
Although there is no distillery in Finlaggan Castle, this ancient home of the ‘Lord of the Isles’ lends its name to one of the islands finest malt whiskies.
Nose: Big breakfast fruitiness (old preserve, more like) plus nuts and chocolate. What a start
Palate: Fat mouth arrival, more chocolate and ..oh peat, lashings of it.
Finish: Back to fruit again, then a chocolate mousse, all interlocked by peat. Brilliant!
