From Instagram With Love

IMG_7296 While cruising through my time line, I noticed a lot of photos on Instagram of happy customers and their bottles of Alexander Murray Scotch.  After almost a year of curiosity and interest, I felt compelled to purchase my very first bottle. With a variety of scotches to choose from, I decided on the Alexander Murray 8 year Caol Ila. I waited almost two weeks to get it but when it arrived I couldn’t have been more excited.

When I had a free moment, I popped the cork on the bottle. I performed the quintessential scotch drinker move and took in a nice sniff. It was beautiful! I was hit with a very clean and distinctly peaty scent. Being an Islay fan, I was more than elated when this scotch passed the sniff test. I reached up and grabbed the first scotch glass I could get my hands on, dropped in a couple of cubes of ice and watched the golden goodness fill the void.

IMG_7313My first sip was nice and somewhat surprising. The sniff test boasted this strong peaty scent but the flavor was not its equal. The flavor had just enough peat those even ruffians who don’t care for Islay scotches could feel safe purchasing this beverage and enjoying it. There was virtually no back burn and the flavor was very pleasant. Before I knew what happened, I was staring at an empty glass. Needless to say, I was content with my purchase.

Ruffians, if you care to have a solid drinking, slightly peaty, glass of relaxation, I would recommend procuring a bottle of Alexander Murray 8 Year Caol Ila.
