An Astonishing whisky for an unbelievable price.

Every year when I visit Girvan and the surrounding area, I take a trip to the distillery. I often sample some new whisky and take a bottle back home to Yorkshire with me. This year, the distillery was closed, but I couldn't leave without ordering a bottle. I ordered this as I have been a big fan of whisky aged in bourbon barrels recently, and hoped it would be okay having not sampled it.

As the review title tells you, I am blown away by this one.

By far my favourite whisky in 5 years of purchasing from A.D. Such a rich flavour and the smokiness is just the right level of intensity. The cask strength gives it a pleasing warmth and after taste and the smell is so inviting when you first pour.

I wholeheartedly recommend.

Dear Chris,

Thank you so much for taking the time to post this review and for your kind words. I am delighted you are enjoying our Cask Islay Bourbon Edition. Hopefully we will be back open for your next visit.

Unbelievable

This whiskey for the price is insane. The intense smoke favour really reminds me of some of the official release cask strength Lagaluvins. Perhaps it is Lagaluvin? Anyway would recommend this to anyone, and especially at this price! I might need to pick up another...
