Thee is a mystery in this Islay Single Malt, the the quality and flavor are crystal clear.

The Vintage Malt Company is based in Glasgow, Scotland. They were founded in 1992 by Brian Crook and have the unique talent of finding good deals on hidden casks and extra production lots. They find orphan casks — even a single barrel — and cut a deal to bottle it up as a special release. Sometime sunder on of their brands, sometimes wrapped in mystery completely. They even have a way for individuals just happen to have a cask of the good stuff to sell it on the QT. The point is that they were voted the best independent bottler a few years ago for good reason.

Finlaggan is one of their house brands of Single Malt Islay Whisky and it is available in three strengths. It is a core offering, so Finlaggen has cut a long-term deal to gain access to a consistent flow of this superior Single Malt. Which distillery is the source? They won’t say.

Finlaggan Cask Strength is the top of the line and strongest dram of the lot at 58% ABV. And even though we do not know which distillery crafted it, we know it was a good one indeed. And without the brand name adorning the bottle, it is also a very good value for the dollar.

Smartass corner:
Loch Finlaggen is a large lake on the island of Islay. There are three island in the Loch — secure from attack — were long where the Lords of the Clan Macdonald ruled their lands. The Finlaggen brand is named after this historic place.
