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.

Reviews for The Ileach Peaty
Sweat & Peat, Excellent Value for Money
Not nearly as peaty as suggested - I would guesstimate that there's 25-30 ppm in here. It's clearly a young dram too, so perhaps not as flavoursome as others. However, there's a nice mix of sweetness and peatness going on that reminds me of Kilchoman Sanaig. Although not quite as beautiful, in my humble opinion this is a solid Islay that offers excellent value for money.

Not enough peat or strength.
Uninspiring, flat and one dimensional. Very similar in profile to the islay offering from Lidl.
Not nearly as peaty as I would prefer, from some
other comments, it is clear that peat isn't for everyone. I wouldn't buy this again. Bought on an auction site, at roughly this price. I suspect it may be a Bowmore from the flavour, which isn't my favourite Islay distillery.

A right solid peaty dram
It is what it says on the tin; a solid peaty number well worth the price. If your looking for complexity and lasting notes, move on and spend £30 more.

Not for me. Soapy.

Good whisky, tremendous value.
Under £30, couldn’t believe how good it was.
Well done Islay.

“Tastes like tar.”
Gave this to my mum, she thinks it’s wonderful and “tastes like tar”. Apparently this is a good thing! My OH said if steam punk had a smell, it would be this.

I can see why the distillery left their name off.
I concur with smoke and sweet and not a lot else. Smoke and caramel. Smells of damp and hot metal. The potting compost reference was entirely apt. The smoke becomes burned and bitter on the finish with the aforementioned metallic aftertaste. Unpleasant, prickly, mouthfeel. For reference I love peaty whiskey normally, even strong, spicy ones, and young, raw ones. With or without water, I couldn’t find the fruit in this, or any really redeeming feature. I gave it two stars as if I wasn’t actively trying to find flavours, I probably would have just said it is raw and lacks complexity.

I enjoy it, although I would have preferred it more peaty. Not too sweet. Would buy again.

Try 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…..!

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