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.

Ileach Peaty Reviews

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!

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...
