  1. Myst111 scored this whisky 72 points Expert Senior

    For this price a good whisky ... in taste the Whisky need a little bit more then 40% ...  but at all not bad but also not my favorite ...
    • Nose
      smokey, jung, fresh, after view time the smoke goes a little big to the back and a little sweetness come in front.
    • Taste
      soft and smokey, for me not more ...
    • Finish
      long and dry, smokey and and the bitter taste will stay.

    Price performance is right. But not quite mine. Is diluted a little too much at 40 percent. Becomes mildly malty, smoky and somehow flowery.

    Only got this as a sample, and it's certainly not something I'd consider buying - not even recommendable if you wanna try peat for cheap.

      Odd kind of peat.. Must be the mix with nail polish remover and slight hint of liquorice. Maybe some muscat as well.
    • Taste

      Some resemblance to Caol Ila, the peat seems fatty, but is far from refined.
    • Finish
      50 50
      Short. And thank god for that.

  8. Taita scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Comparable to the Finlaggan Old reserve. Some differences in nuances (Finlaggan is more peppery, Ileach more mild) but probably the same origin (Lagavulin profile).

    Tasted 2015 bottle with reniewed presentation
    • Nose
      Peat, creosoot, sea weed, stewed fruits, marmelade
    • Taste
      Peat, tar, stewed fruits,pepper, hay, liquorice, leather
    • Finish
      peat, tar, sea weed, leather, oak

    Around 25 EUR, which
    is more than okay fort his bottle. Thanks, Pat!
    • Nose
      Boy, loads of peat on
      the nose. Iodine, sea spray, seaweeds, stockfish and oyster sap. Underneath
      some wet earth and dark fruit, although I cannot pinpoint any in particular. I
      do get some overripe banana and green apples, maybe. Evolves towards goat
      cheese with raisins and then towards stable scent. Quite pleasant!
    • Taste
      The arrival is rather
      weak and watery, to be honest. Mildly drying, by the way. Sweet, certainly, but
      immediately the maritime and slightly medicinal elements kick in. Pepper,
      liquorice and dried spices. Some vanilla takes care of sweetness.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium
      long on more of the same, but with a dry, salty edge at the death.
