Scotch Whisky - Blended - 2013
International Wine & Spirit Competition
Insider knowledge: Isle Of Skye 8 Year Old (Ian Macleod) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Isle Of Skye 8 Year Old (Ian Macleod) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Smoke, notes of barley and crème anglaise.
Palate: Sweet. Fruitcake. Sherry.
Finish: Nutty and spicy.
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.
