Hinch Peated Single Malt Reviews

A poor Whiskey

For me Hinch doesn't have a signature, some which I can taste and recognise as a Hinch whiskey. This peated addition seems more like a marketing tactic to cover more market share rather than an attempt to produce a good product. The base spirit is too young and simple, if offers none of the complexities associated with peated Islay's for example. Plainly, its not a good whiskey.

Possibly tcp in disguise

I'm by no means an expert and have only Sampled a couple of dozens whiskeys but I couldn't finish this. Tasted of germolene to me. I cannot believe how bad this was.

Weak Peaty Gin

Weak peaty gin. Not terrible but not very peaty and more botanical than anything else.

Crisp with a moderate peat punch

Having read some of the other reviews, it is clear that this Whiskey (with the E) is not to everyone’s taste. It’s not an Islay Whisky! It’s a standalone Irish peated whiskey, with a crisp taste and a moderate peat punch. The flavour of the bourbon casks comes through, but the triple distilling gives it the warm mellow sweetness. I was given this bottle, but would be happy to buy a bottle at the competitive price it is selling at. It’s the kind of drink that I enjoy in front of the TV with the log fire blazing, or simply in conversation with friends and family. If you want an Islay peated whisky, Hinch is not for you. If you want an easy drinking everyday whiskey, then it’s worth a try. I’m for another, and perhaps a bottle of the 12 year single malt too!

Is it worth a try? Yes. Would I buy again? No

For me it tasted very much like American Bourbon. It lacked the crisp "Irish" finish.

Peat, peat and more peat.

This is a good quality whiskey with most reviews here way off base. There is peat and more peat and some honey on the nose , then good flavour on the palate with the oaky maltiness apparent, followed by a medium to long finish. Is this a great whiskey? Not yet. Is it bad? Not a chance. It's like a baby Octomore with huge potential. The drink is hard in places, but worth the effort.

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.
