Interesting fact… The Ileach Peaty whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be The Ileach Peaty whiskey, instead of 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.
best scotch, very long finish
Wonderful dram. It never disappoints and is well worth the effort involved in tracing a bottle!
Very interesting Islay malt. The taste is very soft and not so smokey.
I like this stuff vey much.
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!
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.
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.
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
