Islay 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky - Single Bottle
Lower end Islay malt
The packaging is quite nice, but for this Islay malt, it doesn't do the best job representing just how incredible this whiskey region is.
It is relatively mild, very low on the peat, oil, flavour and complexity of a good Islay like Ardbeg, Lagavulin or Laphroaig.
While it can make a good introduction to the Islay malts for the unfamiliar, you'd be better off with the others I mentioned as they are exceedingly far superior to this.

A very welcome gift
I bought this as a gift for my father. He said it was a very good whisky. A lovely smooth taste. A great gift to send when you don't want to send flowers.

An outstanding whisky
I bought this as a gift for a friend. The packaging was great and when I showed it to others everyone commented about how good it was.
Even my grandad, who knows his whisky, liked it.
Recommend it to others. Also, the Marks and Spencer site was convenient for shopping (except, the Outlet part of it, which wasn't).

A really good bottle of Whisky!
As the Whisky is very well packed, - it is a nice way of sending some Christmas Cheer. My friend was absolutely delighted with this. I added some Shortbread to the present as well, - making truly traditional Scottish Fare.
