Isle of Skye 8 Bottling Note

The blend was rested in oak casks before bottling, and received very high praise from Jim Murray, who called it a ‘superstar whisky’ in his 2019 Whisky Bible.

Isle Of Skye 8 Year Old (Ian Macleod) Reviews

Great smooth dram.

As I have said many times before, this is top notch scotch for a price most can afford. If that’s not possible go and get a job and buy a can of coke.

More character than quality

Needs a few drops of water to bring out the flavours. Has plenty of character, and at this price (£20 when ordered) it's certainly competitive. But significantly better available if you want to spend more, e.g. the Great King Street blends from Compass Box.

Just really, really good

Drinking Isle of Skye in the final hours of 2020 - and as an Englishman I personally and sincerely apologise for all that colonizing the world business, it won't happen again - and it's a nice, smooth drink, with just the right amount of briny, maritime nose to be accessible for a beginner, without being overwhelmed by nautical notes like taking a hosing in the face from the fountain of Poseidon himself, or being mugged by a pirate in the rain. Has a firm, dense, savoury taste that lingers on the palate maybe thirty or forty seconds, in my estimation, leaving some mildly spicy, peppery aftertaste. I give it 3.5 rather than 4, as upon reflection, if you're a whisky drinker and in particular a fan of peats then it's probably not going to quite blow you away, but I definitely recommend it as a solid, dependable, uncomplicated dram for casual socializing, for introducing others to more robust smoky or peaty whiskies, and for weaning one's friends off of the sweet stuff when it comes to spirits. And at the low price of below £20, it's a real bargain.

Excellent value

First time tried this as usually only drink peaty malts. Nice surprise as really smooth and nice amount of peat. Will buy again.
