Seaweed & Aeons & Digging & Fire 40% 70cl
No, it doesn't look like much from the outside. It looks cheap as hell, I get that. The fanciest it get on the bottle is a cork, as opposed to a screw cap like it looks like it should have.
But what's IN the bottle, that's what matters. And what we have here is a 10yo Single Malt Whisky from an unnamed Islay distillery. Apparently 25% of the stock was finished in Sherry Octaves, which are very small casks that would produce a good amount of influence on the spirit within.
I love Islay whisky, and this has a great balance of smoke, heat and sweetness. The peat is peppery and not too medicinal, although there are hints within. A touch of sea salt and brine come through, along with salted caramel sweetness on the finish. Although the vast majority of unnamed Islay whisky releases tend to be Caol Ila basede on the sheer scale of their output, I'm not 100% convinced this is from there - the peppery notes are throwing me a bit. My gut instinct is saying Bowmore, but the more I try the more I get that swampy note of Laphroaig. Who knows. Who cares? Most importantly, it tastes absolutely bloody fantastic.
