Its got very mixed reviews on Master of Malts and The Whisky Exchange sites. A good price but it seems its a Marmite type case for this. Some people love it and some hate it. And it being a NAS as well I think I`ll give this one a miss, but thanks for posting.

I've had this before, and personally wasn't that impressed with it.

Young Islays can be great (looking at your Laphroaig QC), but they need a peaty punch or very good cask choice to get away with it. This doesn't seem to have either!

Also the ridiculous colour annoys me, but that's just a personal hatred of over caramelled whiskies.

There are much better islays, and much better Bowmores for similar money. I'd happily pay a tenner extra and get a litre of the 10YO from travel retail.

It's a single malt?

This is a question people ask when they don't have a clue about whisky.

As always, if it's a non-age statement I'm not interested. Very few exceptions to this rule.

That wasn't a question, it was a sarcastic and condescending response to the comment from gods_mad_hatter: "I think its a blend aswell not even sure if its malt and grain.:

It clearly states single malt, meaning it's not a blend nor a grain whisky, perhaps I should have included an epsilon to make my condecension clearer:

It's a single malt...?

I agree in principle, but there are some exceptions and on the low end of the scale, Monkey Shoulder is one for me. It's an excellent blend from three great Speyside distilleries. Could drink that and enjoy it more than many entry level single malts.

NAS Whisky is so that distillers can put out younger spirit and still charger higher amounts for it. I agree there's always exceptions and Monkey Shoulder has its own following and celebrity status, quite possibly from the name itself. It's not something I'd put money in to as there's so much more on offer which thrashes the pants off it quite frankly. If I was given some for free then I wouldn't turn my nose up at it.

A friend of mine used to run the Chester Whisky Shop, which I think could be called Turmeaus now. Anyway I had a sample of loads and loads of whisky from there. If you fancy something completely different then try Rittenhouse 100 Straight Rye.

Yeah it's clear that NAS whisky is financially beneficial for distilleries and as much as I agree that whisky drinkers shouldn't tolerate it, unfortunately with almost every major distillery proportioning larger amounts of whisky into the NAS labels whilst hiking up the prices of the age statements it's hard to avoid.

I have to say I have principles and I will never purchase another bottle of Macallan for what they did to their UK customer base. They swiped off the 10 yo sherry and 12yo fine oak - sent it ALL to Asia for higher prices and replaced it with Macallan gold - a completely inferior product! Then a few years later when the asian market slowed down they re-introduced it to the UK as a special release at more than twice the price. At the same time they almost doubled the age statement.

It might be my favourite whisky, but they can shove it up their hoop.
