Filthy Smoke 10 Year Old Bottling Note

Different people like a lot of different qualities in their whisky. Perhaps you know someone who likes honeyed Speysiders, or grassy Lowland single malts. However, what you've done here is click on a whisky called Filthy Smoke, so there's a chance you like your whiskies to have a certain muckiness to them, and were hoping that was what this one is all about. If so, you are indeed in luck. This is a 10 year old Islay single malt, packed with earthy, peaty notes, which has been finished in sherry casks that were specially selected for their robust, gunpowdery, somewhat sulphury elements. It's those notes that add the eponymous filthiness to this smoky sipper, and it certainly lives up to its name.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Big, intense medicinal peat. Toasted granary bread with a later suggestion of raspberry jam, spent match, a hint of BBQ sauce sweetness and dry-rubbed ribs.

Palate: Grilled tropical fruit with a touch of char, pink peppercorn, damp wood, flamed orange peel, still has that subtle spent match hint to it underneath.

Finish: Baked earth, five-spice, lasting smokiness with just a smidge of toffee apples on bonfire night.

Overall: Thankfully it's not like taking a bite out of the ground - it's a well-put-together whisky, just with a good helping of muckiness at its core.

Different but a very nice whisky

I'm new to proper whisky so every bottle I try is a new experience, this one to me is very special an love it

braggart roar

Plenty of sweet sherry notes take this dram into Christmas pudding territory. Dense, rich, dark, but to my palate not overly smoked - reminded me of Stiuireadair which is a favourite of mine. This is a decent dram, but the braggart roar of its name is misplaced.

Excellent in all respects, velvet.

First tasted at Nedpath inn, malt of the month!

Yum. Buy.

You know what? I really liked this. Smooth, easy to drink. Just wish it was a bigger bottle.

Great, buy some!

Smoky without being too medicinal. Reminds me a a slightly more peaty Talisker 10

Cracking value even for a 50 cl bottle - pro rata much better value than other 70cl bottles.

DEFINITELY NOT FILTHY!
Fabulous, finest, flavoursome, first-rate whisky, though.
Not particularly smoky when you smell it, but a wonderful taste of smoke when you drink it.
I've never had a whisky like it before.
Buy it, try it, love it.

Filthy but not nasty

Awesome stuff for the price. Perfect for sipping around a fire where it becomes almost sweet in comparison. Can't wait for the cask strength version (hint hint).

Filthy, filthy, filthy!

Wow, if you want a whisky that fits its description. This certainly does it. Filthy, filthy, filthy. It’s like licking the last dust from the bonfire. I love it. Shame it was only 50Cl though, my mistake!!

Very Good, very good value

Really Smoky, really peaty. The 'filthy' bit feels a bit of an exaggeration - I'd put this down as a really nice sherry-finished Laphroaig if pushed. For £25 though? Crazy value!

Surprisingly good

Wasn't expecting much but to be honest it's very good, lovely peat smoke not too overpowering and a nice finish in sherry casks.. could definitely compete with the high end islay brands,,reminds me of a sherried peated bunna
