More from Finlaggan

Finlaggan was a launch brand for the Vintage Malt Whisky Company Ltd, which focuses on bottling whiskies from the Highlands and Islands. The brand was designed to embody the spirit of Islay (it’s named after a loch on the north side of the island, just west of Port Askaig where the Macdonald Lords of the Isles had their seat),

This heavily peated whisky has striking similarities to Lagavulin, Laphroaig, Caol Ila, and Ardbeg. The Vintage Malt Whisky Company insists that only one of the Islay distilleries produces Finlaggan, but there is no way to confirm this because its secrets are tightly locked away. Bottled at 40% ABV, this whisky is a soft, well balanced peaty malt that may be a good alternative for those who would like to spend less than the more expensive name brands. Finlaggan Old Reserve has no age statement
