Reviews for Hamiltons Islay Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
You can't go wrong with this Islay for the price.
Excellent value, solid peaty foundation with a touch of seaweed and sea salt. Will buy again.

Nice Islay for $22 US
I like it. Especially for $22.
Nose: I get the grass they claim on the sleeve as well as pear and light sweet toffee notes
Palate: toffee with very light complexities of peat and a hint of brine. Really nice, bit hot or raw around the edges.
Finish. Light peat with a bit more smoke. Spicy ( ie hot). And lingering light toffee.
Bottled at 40% ABV. A few drops of water destroyed the nose and palette so I dumped it and started fresh.
The very pleasant finish although mild is distinct and lingers.
This is a malt blend, meaning all the whiskys that went into it are malt whiskys - no grain, so there are no annoying overtones of grain sweetness, only the malted badly and oak.
I think this is a lovely light expression of the Islay whiskeys. Great for $22.
Of course doesn’t hold a candle to the peatier expressions or even to the Oban. But Oban 14 is $70 in my area.
Drink this! Don’t expect too much. Be pleasantly surprised.

They should sell this with a mouthwash chaser
I purchased Hamiltons Islay Region blended Malt Scotch Whiskey. Apopogies, but this is the worst thing I have ever tasted in the scotch universe.

It's a really good budget Scotch
This is a good budget Islay blend. About the comparisons to Laphroaig, to my taste there's none of the briny maritime flavors that mark the 10 year. It hits more to the Bowmore or Ardbeg side of Islay malts. Now, it's not like Laphroaig, Bowmore or Ardbeg, so don't get your hopes that high. Those are masterful expressions worth the price. But as an everyday drinker this Hamilton's is a really good Scotch, much better and more of value than J Walker or other name blends. I have recommended to my friends and no one has been disappointed.

Hamiltons Islay
A definite yes, for a blended whisky. Moderate amount of smoke and peat with some salty caramel. A little lack of depth but not disturbingly so.

Even more excellent for the money - USD 21 at Total Wine
Looking for an Islay malt - didn't realise it is a blend, but surprisingly good, and inexpensive. Softer than Laphroig, maintains a delicate smokiness that hits the entire tongue palette. And lasts in the mouth.
Light golden colour, not as light as say Cardhu.
And equally light on the nose - but gently assertive.
Well worth for sipping and especially for cocktails when flavour is needed, nut not the expense.

I do love the peat monsters but this is sublime.
I hope that this comes into stock again soon - it's a cracker! There's smoke and peat but in enjoyable proportions - I do love the peat monsters but this is sublime. If you are new to Islay malts this is a fine introduction and at a brilliant price. Best bit of blending I've come across in a long while.
