Finlaggan Old Reserve


Out of stock

Category: Tags: , ,


Finlaggan is a conundrum. Bottles from the Finlaggan brand (a product of the “Vintage Malt Whisky Company Ltd.”) contain a single malt from an Islay distillery.

The company keeps a very tight lid on the identity of its source, breaking silence only to insist that Finlaggan does now, always has, and always will contain whisky from the same distillery.

If we are to believe the company, we must trust our nose and not our ears in order to divine the secrets of this pale liquid. A favorite topic of whisky forums, the identity of Finlaggan’s source is thought to be Lagavulin, Laphroaig, Ardbeg, or Caol Ila.

It’s very likely that the OR (Old Reserve) contains younger whisky – perhaps in the 6 year range – although a bottling of 10 year-old is available in some markets


Tasting Notes:

Nose: Slightly medicinal nose with hints of peanut, sticking plasters, manuka honey and digestive biscuits.

Palate: Sweet cereals, barley malt, a little peat smoke, TCP, nutmeg and ginger.

Finish: A long, sweet finish with toasty oak and peppermint.

Size : 70cl             Alc: 40%vol


NB: Licensing restrictions prevent shipment to areas outside the United Kingdom
