The Six Isles Bottling Note

Six Isles Reviews

A Worthwhile Experiment

I think this blend works very well and feel sorry for folks that think it is undrinkable. Islay dominates but that is not so terrible and the price is very reasonable.

A triumph of marketing over taste

This blend just doesn’t work - it tastes terrible!

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.
