User Reviews of the Ileach Peaty


Pleasant peaty flavour with a hint of mabe vanilla or cream

29th August 2015

A bit better now ..

.. that the bottle's been open a week or so, it's not so 'vicious puppy' and although the finish is still short and weak, it's quite pleasant.

Still a disappointment

Trying it again tonight, still no joy. I looked at Ralfy's review of the cask strength, he reckons it emanates very young Bowmore. I just finished a bottle of Bowmore 12, it was decent. It's nothing like a Laphroaig or a Lagavulin, so I'm more inclined to trust Ralfy as it's not unlike the Bowmore I just finished.

A disappointment

Smacks you in the face and runs off. No real complexity, it has an almost watery, weak finish. It's not too bad considering the money, but I can't understand the 'rave reviews'. It's not a malt that brings me any joy, comfort or excitement.

A hint is on the Bottle

"From the Queen of the Hebrides" may this well be Miss Bessie Williamson.......
Laphroaig many have said that you "Love it or hate it which by what it seems is being said about Ileach, for the record I love it...

For Peats Sake

I believe this drop is from Kilchoman distillery

5th May 2015

Good buy

I have to admit it, I was going through the shelves looking for a good buy, and saw this one. I love Lagavulin so I thought I should give it a try. When you buy something for a good price, you never really now what to expect, but I must say I loved it!

Edinburgh Castle

I was looking for a "smoky" and "peaty" Whiskey and I bought this at Edinburgh Castle, as the manager in the Whiskey shop recommended it to me. He gave me a few samples and this was the one for me. Its has hints of the Sea in the taste and a lovely smoky sensation on the nose and tongue.
Its not for everyone, but its worth having a bottle in.

12th April 2015


I like it. Since years I´ve "imported" Finlaggan whenever I´ve visited a country where this peaty and smokey Islay malt is sold. But now I´ve discovered that another "secret" Islay malt is sold i Sweden: Ileach. My first bottle was not the last.

I agree it's from the Caol Ila

This is definitely from the Caol Ila distillery. It's OK but not to my taste, but you get what you pay for.

very tasty whisky indeed very similar to laphroig as people have mentioned well worth the price

6th November 2014

Young Lagavulin is great!

This delicious Islay whisky is, without a shadow of a doubt, a young Lagavulin. Both the complex peaty-sherried taste and, in particular and decisively, the deep sherry-red colour are only produced by one excellent distillery on Islay. I love it, but the standard Lagavulin 16 y.o. remains my first choice.

4th November 2014


This is a superbly priced single malt, smoky peat with a finish of vanilla and a superb sweetness to it! Perfect purchase.

24th October 2014


This is whisky for the rough men. As a fisherman it´s just what you need when unloading and arrived home. Welcome home!

3rd August 2014

Changed my life

This whiskey tastes better than any other and gave me the ability to fly - once.

31st July 2014

Pleasantly surprised by the rich aroma and peaty but very pleasant aftertaste.

I am also a peat lover, and this was surprising realy in my taste. It was in my opinion a lot of good tastes that surprised me well with the smoke. Sure a very good single malt. Nothing could be better for the price. Nice!

A very good single malt.Nothing could be better for the price.

A Picture Does Not Tell every Story!

There is much speculation on which distillery this 'secret' Islay malt comes from. I have to say that I don;t think any of the great distilleries on Islay would own up to this! It is very underpowered, completely unbalanced and has more than a taint of the dreaded sulphur from a poor sherry cask. Not what a fancy label portrays or the picture depicts this is NOT representative of the superb Islay malts. Cheapness usually means poor quality and in this case it simply pays to pay for the price of a true Islay malt and not a cheap imitation.

Ich bin überrascht von dem gehaltvollen, fruchtigen, aber nicht aufdrängendem Geschmack. Eine tolle Sache,

Absolut zu empfehlen. Leute die diesen Whisky nicht kennen werden sehr positive überrascht sein.
Das gilt auch beim mehrmaligen Versuch und auch nach mehreren Tagen.
Ich bin ein Malt Liebhaber seit über 25 Jahren.

You are all wrong

What you are drinking is a young Caol Ila.

25th March 2014


Real good whisky to a real good price! Buy!!

12th March 2014

Not my cup of tee

I am a peat lover, but this was not realy in my taste. It was in my opinion a lot of tastes that did not blend well with the smoke.

9th February 2014


A great Whiskey and a good prica.

7th February 2014


Buy this. As we say in Cornwall "tis bleedy ansome"

1st January 2014

Very palatable and definitely worth trying.

19th July 2013


This is a really fabulous whisky. The sublime peppery, peaty and kippery taste is a real pleasure on the taste buds. The unknown distillery from which it came may well be Laphroaig. Try the cask strength for extra bite.

15th July 2013

changing taste

A few years ago I bought 18 bottle of Ileach. Some investigation brought me at the information that it should be a 10 year old Lagavullin. (i'm sure it is not a 10 year laphroaig) but after a while this whisky becomes flatter in taste for me. It is starting to disapoint me sometimes and i'm an islay lover

28th February 2013

Easy to recognise.

Bought a bottle of this and it hit me in the face that it is clearly a Laphroaig 10 yr old. Way more medicinal than its neighbouring distilleries. Love Laphroaig especially the quarter cask or cask strength but for the cash this bottling you can't go wrong with.

17th January 2013


Lagavulin is my favourite, but it's outpriced itself from my humble factory wage. This however, since it's accidental discovery (bought on a whim in a shop in Ludlow) this comes a very very close second. At half the price it's a bargain. You will not be disapointed.

NYC Ricky

Just picked up a bottle on rrecommendation while in a shop in Newcastle & opened it at home last night... REALLY DELICIOUS balance of flavours with a nice, healty dose of peat! I generally go for Ardbeg or Lagavulin,this was a pleasant surprise at only 25 pounds for 70 cl bottle... what a bargin!

18th August 2012


Very interesting Islay malt. The taste is very soft and not so smokey.
I like this stuff vey much.

Wonderful dram. It never disappoints and is well worth the effort involved in tracing a bottle!
