Whisky Reviews for Smokey Joe Islay Malt Scotch Whisky
18 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.14 points
- cheap and not bad
- During a tasting 2019 edition.
- Blind tasted: Had typed a Lagavulin or Laphroaig.
Sour fruits combine with peaty smoky aromas and hints of roasted nuts. Overall, very youthful.
Nice mouthfeel - medium body. Strong smoke flavors (bacon) with sweet fruits, iodine, malt, some citrus, spices and oak.
Long, smoky-peaty, malty with some wood. Dries your mouth slowly.
- Nose has a lot of smoke and peat, iodine, but turns slightly fruity after some time in the glass. Lots of smoke on the palate, some sweetness as well. Finish is relatively short, smoke, hints of tar and bit of an unpleasant bitter taste (improves when in the glass for some time though). This is a simple, not very complex whisky, smoke from start to finish.
- Ralfy's review:
- LMDW tasting note Color: deep gold. Nose: Gentle and firm at the same time. Liquorice stick notes, bourbon vanilla. It opens with more iodized and medicinal notes (bronchodermin). Becomes more mineral, oil notes and hot macadam. Evokes the pungency of a chimney fire. Citrus, grapefruit and orange notes. Palate: Very gently, it is dominated by the liquorice stick. It confirms the notes of the nose developing on camphor and eucalyptus. Subtle peanut notes. Final: Firmer and austere. She is back in force on the mineral register, with notes of oil. Endless on liquorice and fire. Style: Marin and fresh.
