Exploring the world of Single Malt Scotches

Creag Isle 12

Creag Isle 12- The bottle looked promising on the shelf and  I enjoy Islay whiskies, what could possibly go wrong……­­This name was unfamiliar and I always seek new tastes so….. Upon opening, the nose was powerful and a bit peaty, a fine first impression.  My initial taste was a tad sharp with enough honey sweetness to make a beekeeper swoon. The  burnt amber color and substantial legs in the glass added to the anticipation.  At 42% the alcohol makes a statement along with the mild grassy and fruit flavors , and while the taste is good , it is far from remarkable.  As a serious fan of Island Scotches , I am a touch underwhelmed by Mr. or Ms. Creag’s distilling.  Our subject is a wee notch up from a blend and I rate it a generous 6.
