Lochlann Sequelis, Gleann Mor Spirits, 46%

Review #479
This is a single malt from an undisclosed distillery. It is from a single cask (Bourbon Barrel) and only 78 bottles were made. Light peat with sweet pears in the smell. After some minutes in the glass, the peat gets more deep. Some heathery notes and hints of oak.

The taste is hot and full of peat. Some earthy notes mixes in, with some vanilla on the side. The finish is a bit short, and gets a bit watery. After a couple of sips, it is as if the oils have covered your mouth and the flavours stays a little longer. Peat, hay and vanilla sweetness.

If you like your Islay whiskies young and fresh, this would be a fine choice. It is not very complex, but it is very uncomplicated, with a fine balance. A very honest Islay dram. I will give this 83/100 (20/21/21/21).
