Lighter Lagavulin 16, less overwhelming.

Too smoky
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Very nice peat, leather, burnt sugar on the nose. Taste brought me a good midsized portion of smoke, charred oak, and a touch of that medicinal/Band-Aid flavor that I don't care for. Finish was long and semi-dry with a hint of charcoal. Good overall but not my favorite. Wish the flavor had a tad more sweetness to cover up that medicinal quality.

Tastes like drinking a campfire that got rained on.

Alan,
I had a glass of this in Seattle last year, then finally decided to pick up a bottle for myself. It was an impressive drink. Between now and then I've discovered both: 1) this whisky has been supplanted by a new Toiteach A Dha , and; 2) another similar-bodied Islay whisky that I find superior. On the flavor / profile, this is a medium-body Islay malt. For me, I need an ice-cube or a bit of water; don't get me wrong, it's pretty smooth but is improved around the edges by cooling it down. The flavor is nice enough and I assume you can read more about the taste from the other 122 ratings. I'm happy to have purchased a bottle, but won't seek another out when it's gone.

Mark,
I love peat and smoke, and this is an excellent easy drinking Islay Scotch. I gravitate toward the extremes--Laphroaig Cask and Ardbeg Correyvreckan are favorites--so the flavor here is relatively low key for me, but the up-front smoke and hint of sweetness on the finish are both very enjoyable.

Derek,
I liked the idea of a smoky scotch, after this I shall steer clear of the smoke. To me, this was more of a distillate of something in the barnyard that was burnt and then smothered by wet wool. The after taste seems tediously long. I've enjoyed Highland Park Dark, Oban, Arbelour and MaCallan 12 more than this.

Casey,
Very smoky, maybe just a bit too smoky for my taste and a strong bite. Otherwise very flavorful and great after a long day at work.

Joseph,
This is by far the smoothest scotch I have ever had the pleasure of tasting. I was going to share this with a couple of friends, but decided against the it since I am selfish. I will definitely order another bottle.

Wanda,
Over 50 year's of loving Single Malt Scotch, this one won the highest award with my husband. He loved it and we ordered more!
 
Kenneth
Kenneth,
Brilliant! Almost perfect balance between smoke, salt, and fruit. i usually find beverages above 42% ABV too "hot" to enjoy without water, but this is the exception. Perfect just as is it. Enjoy!
 
Christian
Christian,
This was one of my first bottles of scotch, and oh my what a bottle to start with. The description fits it perfectly, smells like a charcoal smoke, tastes like freshly grated peppercorns, and nails the landing with a fruit flavor. Open for special occasions.

Patricia,
simply glorious

Shana,
Wowza. Adding to top faves list. Redefines peat in a sophisticated and enticingly smooth way. From nose to palette to finish, it's a beautiful journey meant to be shared for truly special occasions.
 
Frank
Frank,
This is a really robust Scotch Whisky. It has prominent smoky peaty flavors with a long smooth finish. It reminds me quite a bit of Lagavulin 16 year old Scotch as comparison which doesn't disappoint by any means. I am a fan!
 
Brandon
Brandon,
A superb expression. The Bunnahabhain provides complexity like an avalanche of honey. Sweet from the start, balanced by a mature peat that is never sharp or overpowering. Tall notes of leather with a lingering apricot finish. Absolutely a top five scotch for me this year.
 
Robert
Robert,
One of my favourites. A complex whisky that really opens up with a couple of drops of water.
 
Will
Will,
May have become my all time favorite, it is full of fire, with a touch of sweetness. Almost perfect with a long finish.
