Awards for Isle of Skye 8
Also from Ian Macleod Branded Whisky
Whisky or Whiskey
Interesting fact… Isle Of Skye 8 Year Old (Ian Macleod) whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Isle Of Skye 8 Year Old (Ian Macleod) whiskey, instead of whisky.
Isle of Skye 8
An 8 year old blend from Ian Macleod, Isle of Skye is based around malt whisky from Speyside and the Islands. Presumably named for the artist Matisse.
Nose: Smoke, notes of barley and crème anglaise.
Palate: Sweet. Fruitcake. Sherry.
Finish: Nutty and spicy.
Excellent for the price
Nose: heavily smokey, bittersweet, hints of apple cider.
Palate: smoke, peat, and oh so rough, the spirit in this one has been rushed. A lot. Feels like your throat is getting ripped open by acid. Practically undrinkable.
Finish: unfortunately the spirit lingers a long time...
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. Unless for an enemy, and in which case why buy anything for them?
A waste of money, and a shame considering all the nice things I've heard about it. :(

For the price it is a must buy. Delicious and savory. Also, don't know why but on my bottle it says 43%, not 40% as stated here.
