... another big Islay bruiser!!!
... this is arguably the strongest tasting Malt made in Scotland with the exception of Bruichladdich's Octomore, and whatever is the next million-parts-per-million peat horror!
This Malt has the interesting reputation of being the Scotch Whisky for sale in the U.S.A. during prohibition being available at chemists as a tonic.
Why? .... 'cos it was considered too foul-tasting to be drunk as liquor.
Peaty, phenolic, 'medicinal', iodine and seaweed, this flavour lingers in the mouth for hours.
