What's in a name? Islay 8 Year Old - As We Get It (Ian Macleod) whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Islay 8 Year Old - As We Get It (Ian Macleod) whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Quite sweet. Big on peat, toffee, barley. Crisp cereals, herbal.
Palate: Big and rich. Spices, supple peat, good sweetness.
Finish: Tarry, spices, oak. Long finish.
For an 8 year old whisky, this one is a wonderful whisky. Now, I'm not so deep in the game I can name you all the tastes or impressions, but I think that is because there are so many of them in this one, and it rivals several strong peaty whiskies I've tried that are both two and three times as old.
