Whisky Reviews for Islay Mist The Original Peated Blend McDI
5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 76.78 points
- Nose are grain and barley malt, peaty smoke, apple jam. Taste is watery with peaty smoke. Finish has elements of zest, roasted malt.
- Standard "smooth" whisky that beginners would enjoy, just lacks that punch both in terms of flavor and ABV.
This has been diluted too much as the mouthfeel and finish just fall flat, but overall the flavors are nice albeit not a complex dram.
81 points - Not something I'd go out my way to drink, but not bad.
As another reviewer pointed out, I could've sworn this was and Ardbeg after my initial nosing.
I had to let this one open up for a while because i found the alcohol was quite harsh.
After a few moments, you get hints of lemon, sweetness, smokiness, herbs, hay, and grass.
Very watery indeed, it runs very smoothly in your mouth and lacks some oomph.
Covers your mouth mostly with peat and a peppery note followed by some citric notes but nothing really interesting.
Notes of oak, pepper, smoke, herbs. Lingers quite long.
- My first Islay whisky I bought ! Quite easy start for beginners who would like to taste the Islay mist, full of smoky aromas, peat and salty seaweeds. I expected whisky light but smoky and it met my expectations. Light golden colour, like apple juice, doesn't look like mixed with caramel. Smoky, peat smell, but sweet at the same time, not aggresive. It's easy drinkable beacuse of its nature - it's blend with sweet grain whisky added. Taste is sweet, then smoky, and quite cheap, spicy and alcoholic in the end. Smoky element covers all the disadvantages after all. It's nice as in my opinion taste quite good continue the nose (at least at the beginning). Finish is not long but also not very short as for blended whisky. For me, finish was really interesting experience: a lot of new aromas: apart from being smoky and peaty, I can find here elements of earthiness, ash, bonfires, also 'medical' elements.
All in all very nice Islay for beginners :)
Sweet, grain, even a little bit honey, smoky (but in light, pleasant way), sea aromas - breeze, salty, seaweeds
Sweet at the beginning, then it's smoky and dry, with element of peat, in the end cheap spiciness plays the main role - it indicates it's a young blend
Interesting in my opinion: smoky, earthiness elements, smoked salmon (?), ash, bonefires, peat, in the very end I can recognize something similar to 'medical' aroma. It's not super long but not so short as in typical blend
- This Whisky gives you exactly what it says on the bottle. Islay Mist
Smells like Ardbeg
Tastes like a Laphroaig/Bruichladdich
You can tell its a blend because the aftertaste doesn’t stay very long
