I'm a fan of supermarket malts, especially the Islays, for a value dram and Sainsburys offering has been my favourite for a few years now. (Mind you, you can't go far wrong with any of them.)
Nose: Coal-tar and hospitals, a touch of carbolic soap. Very sweet-peat with just a twist of lemon;
Taste: Silky and sweet mouth arrival, followed by a gentle build up of peat oils and some dark chocolate;
Finish: A long, lingering sweet-peat finish and again that sense that you've just visited a hospital.
An inexpensive sweet-peat blast for modern day credit-crunch times. A good hip-flask malt for any occasion but especially whilst watching outdoor sports on a cold day.
This dram is from batch is L6068 and from memory not as good as previous L5 batches I had (92 points in JM's '06 Bible). Previous batches were 'pale stunners' and far lighter in colour (ie some caramel suspect in this batch) and definitely had some Ardbeg character in them IMHO. Never-the-less this is still a good value dram for those needing a peat-hit rather than exploring the virtues of a single Islay malt.
Credit-crunch value for those feeling the pinch.
