Description

A great Islay single malt from an unnamed distillery.

The Ileach always scores well with the critics, this cask strength edition was awarded a mindblowingly high 97 points by Jim Murray in his Whisky Bible.

He describes as easily being a whisky of the year contender.

Try to find the sweet spot in this one, straight from the bottle it’s pretty harsh, but water it down too much and you’ll get a bit of an ‘artificial tasting’ sweetness.

Wonderful stuff if you’re a peat head!

===============================================================

Tasting Notes:

Nose : Peat, campfire, iodine, a bit meaty and some lemon peel

Palate: Charred meat, lemongrass, dry and peppery, a combination of old wood and leather

Finish: Be sure to add a few drops of water to open this one up, cane sugar, peppers, oranges, seaweed, dark chocolate.. there’s a lot going on once you get past the alcohol
