Interesting fact… Islay Storm whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Islay Storm whiskey, instead of whisky.
Nose: Peat smoke, oily, briny, some malt/
Palate: Sweet rush initially, then onto medicinal peat and seaweed, some bourbon notes, spices, custard.
Finish: Smoke, long and spiced.
nice peaty malt, not as sharp as some Islay malts, but unmistakable taste and different enough to be a great addition.

Great value for the money. Starting with some different sweet tasts. Ending with salty, peaty and smokey flavours!
Looks a bit similar like the Bruichladdich Waves.

Nothing like any other Islay malt. Not typical of the island: lacking in all of Islay's character, easily the most mediocre malt I have tasted.

For Islay a disappointment and even considering the lower price.

I can not imagine that the 2011 tasters had the 'Storm' as the 2013 batch. The current edition has a nice finish, but what you have to taste to get there is not good. I will mix this down with a blend and serve to guests.
