What's in a name? The Ileach Peaty whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled The Ileach Peaty whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Youthful peat, herbal notes, oak, grassy, notes of the coast.
Palate: Sublimely smooth malty notes, peat, peppery spices, tannins, a touch of fruit.
Finish: Faint iodine. Coastal notes, malt.
I am a peat lover, but this was not realy in my taste. It was in my opinion a lot of tastes that did not blend well with the smoke.

This is a really fabulous whisky. The sublime peppery, peaty and kippery taste is a real pleasure on the taste buds. The unknown distillery from which it came may well be Laphroaig. Try the cask strength for extra bite.

A few years ago I bought 18 bottle of Ileach. Some investigation brought me at the information that it should be a 10 year old Lagavullin. (i'm sure it is not a 10 year laphroaig) but after a while this whisky becomes flatter in taste for me. It is starting to disapoint me sometimes and i'm an islay lover

Bought a bottle of this and it hit me in the face that it is clearly a Laphroaig 10 yr old. Way more medicinal than its neighbouring distilleries. Love Laphroaig especially the quarter cask or cask strength but for the cash this bottling you can't go wrong with.

Lagavulin is my favourite, but it's outpriced itself from my humble factory wage. This however, since it's accidental discovery (bought on a whim in a shop in Ludlow) this comes a very very close second. At half the price it's a bargain. You will not be disapointed.

Just picked up a bottle on rrecommendation while in a shop in Newcastle & opened it at home last night... REALLY DELICIOUS balance of flavours with a nice, healty dose of peat! I generally go for Ardbeg or Lagavulin,this was a pleasant surprise at only 25 pounds for 70 cl bottle... what a bargin!

Wonderful dram. It never disappoints and is well worth the effort involved in tracing a bottle!
