Hinch Peated Single Malt Bottling Note

It's a Peated expression from the Hinch Distillery! Based in the Killaney Estate, it takes its name from the nearby town of Ballynahinch. The triple distilled whisky is packed full of chilli spice and savoury smokiness.

Hinch Peated Single Malt Reviews

Lacking quality and maturity

Compared to a decent laphroaig or talisker this dram is pretty poor. It seems to me that it would benefit from longer maturing in perhaps Sherry or Madeira casks, which might take the edge off the rather coarse flavour. I kind of see what they are trying for with this, but it just hasn't worked.

Whisky? Not Worthy Of The Name

Poor poor quality whisky. Not peaty at all. Too young with very little flavour. Like a weak gin. This can't really be called a whisky to be honest. Hinch need to wait a while and try again. I won't waste anymore money on them until I hear that they are serious about making quality whisky rather than just a quick buck.

Lightly peated, great value. Great start for new distillery

This was really pleasant surprise for such a young whiskey. It’s very lightly peated so not over powering and can enjoyed by those who don’t normally go for the smokier whiskey. It’s very easy to drink and that price it offers great value. I’ve tried a few of the Hinch whiskeys and this is my favourite. I happily recommend to anyone.

Seems I’m alone, but I really like this one

I’m on around my 10th bottle of this, glad I didn’t read the reviews before I bought my first ! Made it to my top 5 list at a whisky tasting in London even compared to some at >£100. Slightly chemical smell on first opening but this goes after a day. A little chilled water wakes it up nicely. I should point out that I am no expert and others are probably technically correct, but I love this.

Simply wrong

Tried it at my local whiskey club (sadly remotely). For the price, one of the worst whiskeys I've tried. Sad, as I was really looking forward to it. I could could notes, pallet and finish but it would be in the same vein.

I don’t know what to do with the rest of the bottle

This is bad. Overwhelming notes of petrol station burps. I like their un peated expression but this whisky ruins other nearby bottles

Actually pretty OK.

Received yesterday as a birthday present.

Neat virgin tasting: It’s young and tastes like smoky co-op ham slices, not great, too much peat, not enough malt but strangely has something sweet in the finish, a bit like some Covid-19 lockdown sugar vodka I made (for hand sanitiser purposes)... needs more aging and also too much alcohol for the body of the whiskey.

With some chilled water: Cheers it up lots, grassy, malty notes come out, in the same universe as Balvenie peat week 14 or perhaps a poor-man's version of the Kilchoman 2007 11 Year Old TWE Exclusive..

Ultimately I’m actually quite happy with this. Its rather overpriced but not bad for what it is.

Far too smokey which over powers the delicate flavours. Disappointed.

Good stuff

Beautiful nose, no harsh notes on the taste, great value. I prefer this to Connemara. Will definitely buy again.

It is like a slightly peaty gin!

This is a strange dram. I am a long time whisky taster and drinker and this is a first for me. I am also a peat head and there is but a touch of peat in this. I have to admit that the older my taste buds get, the more peat I need for me to taste it though. It's a bit like eating spicy food for years. This Hinch whiskey both smells and tastes rather like a very smooth gin. A little bit of pepper and oil, a touch of peat and a taste of botanicals. It is smooth and the flavours are very light. Not a big hitter, not a great whisky, but not unpleasant. It is easy to drink, and could be used a session whisky. But the price is too high for that. Worth a try, but maybe not a whole bottle. It should not be called a peated whiskey though. It is hardly peated.

So try a dram of this lightly peated whisky gin at the pub, if you ever find it there.
