Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship The Six Isles to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution, but until then, here are some alternatives:

The Six Isles Bottling Note

A superb vatted malt from Ian Macleod, Six Isles blends together six single malts, one from each of the whisky producing Scottish islands. Arran, Islay, Jura, Mull, Orkney and Skye are all represented here in this cracking blended Scotch whisky.

Six Isles Reviews

An interesting dram

I like whiskies from all of the six isles, so a blend of them got my attention. Price wise, this blend costs less than the majority of singles from the isles, especially if they are over 40%. Being 'no age statement' obviously keeps the price down - but I fondly remember no age statement Ledaig - a much missed dram. A drop of water releases soft smoke on the nose. Taste wise, I can't argue that the Islay smoke doesn't dominate - but what would you expect? That said, it fades at the finish and there's a hint of boiled sweets to be sampled. I like this dram - it's interesting and decent value.

Love the new blend of isle malts

When you read the label and reviews, you don't understand much, but moment you take first sip, the first word you speak is 'wow'. Its not a party time drink. Have it with close friends who appreciate a good blended isle malt.

A marketing coup

A marketing coup. The idea of a blended island malt whisky cheaper than single malts is attractive, but it doesn’t work. The result is almost undrinkable. Smoky peat at the expense of all the other whisky flavours. Never again.

One less in the cabinet....

I’m going to my cottage tomorrow and I had to decide what to bring. Normally, I take up a vetted/ blended/ pure malt so I looked in my collection and decided to take up the Six Isles. Needless to say , I had to sample it first and I think I made the right choice. It’ll be a treat sitting around the campfire and the metal case will protect the bottle. It has just the right amount of Smoky-peat with a long finish , not much nose but the campfire smoke would overpower the nose anyway. Last year I took up Johnny Walker Green but I think I finished it off.

Way over priced

Like it a lot BUT way over priced for a less than 12 year old blended whiskey

A masterpiece

Well what shall I say, if you like single malt with aromatic sweet peat , smoke with a lingering finish
That’s a whisky for you .
I just in love with this blended malt it’s complex it’s slightly peppery
I love the fact it is non chilled filtered 43% and no E150 color added to this .
I must say it’s a true masterpiece
I hope Dan Murphy’s Australia will continue to stock this malt nectar for ever
and for $64 it’s a steal for the quality , if you a peat lover do yourself a favor and get a bottle!

Smoke and brine and nice iodine

This one I bought ‘cause it had a nice box, an appealing pricetag and contained whisky from 6 isles. You can’t go wrong there.
Really - You can’t. This one is great value for money and quite interesting. Pale and young it is and no Islay smoke bomb.
Sniffing device: bon fire smoke and wooden ash. Salty and a bit acidic but the alcohol is well behaved. A tad water bring out iodine and some sweetnes.
Mouth: Fat, chewy, delicious. No alco burn. You can surely taste the charred wood from the bonfire now, along with some sweetness. A slight metallic sence on the tounge is found. This is not complicated, but it is good.
Finish: A bit more than medium long. The smoke is present at first but I find some peppery note along with iodine and a bit of acid.

If you’re a peat head who think Octomore 7.2 is thin and underpeated, this is not for You.
If You’re a lazy dog who want the convenience of 6 isles in one bottle
Or if You just like good whisky at a reasonable price, this just might be.

Not what I expected....

Rave reviews had me buy a bottle, and I was expecting a good, peated blend.
On the nose were briny, sea aromas.
On the palate: grain, peat and seaweed.
The finish was long and full and I swore I could taste the Islay in it. It was a quirky blend- not a bad whisky but not my favorite.

Nothing like Pomerol finish. Disappointing.

I bought this edition only after falling in love with the pomerol edition which is magnificent whisky at any price point. Unfortunately this edition is so weak, underwhelming that I threw it down the sink after the first try. The only othe whisky that went down the drains in my collection was Jack Daniels. I don’t know if i got a bad batch but it was nothing like the pomerol finish. avoid!

excellent, great ingredient with Drambuie in Rusty Nail

One of the very few Vatted Malts I buy ( I resist the common fad for calling them blended malts )

Drink some straight, but mainly use it for spicing up Rusty Nail, as I find straight Speyside leaves it a little lacking, and most straight Island malts overpowering. I vat up RN in a gallon jar, and let it marry for 6 months.

Thin, smojey, not smokey, braw!!!

Its thin!
Its smokey but has no smokey aftertaste!
I truly love this whisky!
Its NOT a single malt BUT it is genius!
So! When you need smokey but don't want it to linger and you want Scottish Islands but you don't want a beard & tweeds this is your tipple!

Nice one down here in Aus

Totally agree with last review.. Doesn't need the tin box. Just a great little whisky... didn't get much if any smoke on the nose.... but the palate ...a nice swat of it ... Yeah.! Price point... great.... this is my second go at it .. sam e same.... it sits at $ 60 [Aus] very reasonable.

Nice whisky but seriously over packaged

Great whisky but why oh why do they have to package it in a metal box? It's a great price and ticks all the boxes flavour wise. I would happily buy this as a regular dram but can't justify throwing away a stupid metal coffin each time. Please get with the picture and offer customers the choice to buy it in cardboard box (like most other non super premium whiskes) as surely the majority of people buying this are to drink it and not for a gift.

Nice Surprise

I had expected this to be far too peaty for my taste - but it was just spot on!
