Ileach Peaty Bottling Note

The Ileach Peaty (pronounced Eee-luhk) is a young and peaty single malt whisky from a secret Islay distillery, independently bottled by the Vintage Malt Whisky Company. Ileach is what the Islay natives call themselves, and this whisky is Islay through and through. There’s no mucking about here, this is one peaty dram. Of course, it says so in the name.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Youthful peat, herbal notes, oak, grassy, notes of the coast.

Palate: Sublimely smooth malty notes, peat, peppery spices, tannins, a touch of fruit.

Finish: Faint iodine. Coastal notes, malt.

Ileach Peaty Reviews

Try it ..it will not disappoint!

This is delish! I highly recommend I have spent too long trying to figure out which Of my favourite Islay distillery has produced this perfect dram….I just love it…thank you for every delicious drop. It is one bottle that is always in our ‘booze cabinet’ right next to the Mahir and between the bramble liqueur which has me wondering…..!

Thin.

Expected more. If you are a Laphroig 10 drinker, this will disappoint. Not enough going on. Not enough peat!

This young one has kept some wonderous liquid away from the angels.....

This is just superb! As an ex smoker my first sniff was a lit roll up, maybe even the type more daring students would pass around when I was at Music College, which then settled to normal peaty smokiness. I agree with all of your tasting notes. Could the fruit be plumbs on the pallate? I'm close to heaven with this one...

A whisky with peat like a terrible film with Al Pacino

I remember the reek of tequila and a 'this is a peaty whisky' realisation, a little bit like when Al Pacino lends his name to a terrible film - you know, 'Oh, look, it's Al Pacino' - but 5 minutes after the glass is empty, there's no aroma and no aftertaste left. A poor script for a great actor.

True bargain for its price

This would be a perfect delight after a moose hunting day late November. Fits for a rainy summer day as well.

One to divide...

I can see why the reviews vary a lot with this one. Yes, it is unashamedly peaty. If this is a surprise then, well I actually don't know what to say! It is young and the finish is a little on the short side but the nose is lovely and complex, changing with time and water. The palate is actually very amenable and overall this is a very worthwhile, and good value, malt. Go on - make your own mind up!

Best peated Islay at this price range. Nose: delicious rich smoke and barely, hint of fruitiness. Reminds me of the bouquet of all the malting rooms of the distilleries I visited on Islay. Palate: deep smoke with hints of vanilla/heather sweetness,

Best whisky I've had at anything close to this price. Nose: delicious rich smoke and barely, hint of fruitiness. Reminds me of the bouquet of all the malting rooms of the distilleries I visited on Islay. Palate: deep smoke with hints of vanilla/heather sweetness, maybe a bit of oak/wood spice. Clearly one of the 'big boys' among Islay distilleries putting out a budget label and totally killing it. I'm definitely keeping a bottle of this around for when I want that luscious peat without feeling guilty about the price.
If you like the smokey Island/Islay whiskys but don't want the price associated with most of the big name distilleries, then you'll love this.

Anyone who gives this a bad review obviously just doesn't like the heavily peated whiskies.
