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.

User Reviews of the Islay Storm

nice for the price

This has all the characteristics of an Islay. Some of the other reviewers suggest otherwise. Those reviewers must not drink Islay's. Yes, this is young (5-6 years) but for the price it is very acceptable. This scotch has a place in my cabinet.

Really trows you of in your expectance of a islay malt button i think it's a good balanced whisky good peat notes and a fruity woodsy pallet

Drinkable but not my cup of tea

An independent bottling from an undivulged distillery; speculation is that it's a 5-6 year old Lagavulin. Smells and tastes like a campfire, oily mouthfeel, nautical notes abound, some slight nuttiness at the end. The aftertaste lasts for hours, sadly. Got this for $20 at Trader Joe's because I wanted to try an Islay without spending a fortune. Drinkable, intriguing and smooth, but I'm more a fan of Highland and Speyside malts.

Price considered and still has that special !!! good "body" and "aftertaste"... perfect for the porch in the summerevening after a great barbecue with red wine !

Is this an Islay?

Interesting.. Not what one would expect from an Islay and hence a disapointment given the name. Giant peat with loads of alcohol on the nose. Seems very young. Not recomendable for Islay Lovers.

A superb Islay - different with some sweet caramel notes on the fore taste and salt without being over peaty on the after taste. A bargain at the price and my favourite whisky find for two years

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.

For Islay a disappointment and even considering the lower price.

Islay Storm

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.

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.

nice peaty malt, not as sharp as some Islay malts, but unmistakable taste and different enough to be a great addition.
