The Legendary Dark Silkie

Sliabh Liag Distillers has shown its smoky side with this Irish blend, dubbed The Legendary Dark Silkie! Taking inspiration from 19th century Donegal whiskey, a triple distilled peated single malt is at the core of this expression, peated to about 22ppm and matured in sherry casks. It's then blended with a bourbon-matured single malt as well as a grain whiskey having been rested in virgin oak. The result? A fruity, subtly smoky and dry bottling which is sure to convert Irish whiskey lovers to a hint of peat!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Orchard fruit sweetness veiled by dry smoke, cigar box and spicy oak.

Palate Salted dark chocolate, with oaky vanilla, fresh tobacco and waves of more drying smoke.

Finish Toasted nuts and sweet malt, with gentle smoke in the background.

Reviews for The Legendary Dark Silkie Irish Whiskey
Honey, smoke and warmth
This is Laphroaig with honey! Gentle peated smoky warmth. Not for every day but perfect for cold wet long dark winter evenings. Puts many an Islay whisky in the shade.

I do love surprises !!
I'm a member of TSMWS. Just back from an Ireland road trip, landing in Donegal. This dram just blew me away. Never heard of it. Got home & a bottle was ordered.
I'm sitting with my 2nd dram.
Had my first last night.
This will be rationed. I could get greedy otherwise. Loving the range of tastes.

A Lovely Peated Blend
I chose this as I am new to Peated Whiskey and didn't want anything too peaty to start off with. This hits the spot. Just the right amount of peatiness and not too smokey either. I think it is probably quite smooth for a peated whiskey, although at the moment I have nothing to compare it with. I think I will try a Single Malt Peated next. Although, this is a lovely blend, I do like my Single Malts.

Peat Perfection
For me, that is the perfect amount of peat and smoke in a beautifully enjoyable Irish whiskey. The finish is really lingering and just asks to have a wee drop more to be poured............

Fantastic peated blend, 5 star at low price tag.
Amazing blend. Took me a day and a half to go 1/2 bottle in. It is savoury smoke on the nose, fruity creamy palate, chocolate too with nice briny, marine salt aftertaste.
