The mysterious Finlaggan Single Malt is most likely stocked from different distilleries. But it IS a single malt. This means that Finlaggan will probably taste different depending on where and when you buy it, but I have found its quality to be pretty consistent.
Nuts, sweat, and leather. Wet smoke, slight pepper. Salted peaches. Medium-rich sweetness.
Lots of nice tasting black pepper. Some salt, toffee, and smoke. Average mouthfeel. Not terribly complex, but what it has is tasty.
Pepper, toffee, slightly bitter lemon.
Well worth $20, and a great cheapie to keep on the shelf. If it’s available to you (I find mine at Trader Joe’s), I recommend trying a bottle!
