Thirteen days in and the whisky advent calendar delivers me something that I had not previously heard of….
Big Strand Islay Single Malt Whisky
What the Bottler Says
Not really anything. No website, press release, or really anything.
What Richard Says
Nose: Smoky and meaty.
Palate: Surprisingly sweet with notes of roasted peppers and salty sea air.
Finish: Hot and dry.
Comments: I would pass on this one. There is plenty of Islay malt out there but this one is unbalanced and feels cobbled together. This is probably either a product of young or poorly chosen whisky.
Rating: Probably Pass
