Shieldaig Islay Single Malt

Single Malt — Islay, Scotland

2.25 out of 5 stars
at first approach I was blown away. this is my first Islay Peated Scotch. All I got was deep smoke like if I threw a wet rag into my pit smoker for 3 hours and took a whiff. first glass was all iodine, brine and that same smoke. Like sipping dripping from a fire pit. I left alone for a week came back. this time it was a sweeter, more fruit notes coming thru but still harsh smoke and peat. Then I started mixing into cocktails, the Penicillin is a good one to approach this hell fire Peaty Scotch
