Whisky Reviews for Classic of Islay Vintage 2015 JW

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.43 points

  1. Shane_IL scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    It definitely has that cough-syrupy Lagavulin finish and all the lovely black tea notes. Whatever it is, it's a fantastic cask strength, well made Islay malt, serious bang for buck here.
    • Nose
      Definitely young. No new make notes, but quite a hefty grainy note to it. Lots of ashy peat, old bonfires and glazed meats. Thick cough syrup. Some dirty sherry. Freshly laid road tar. Lapsang souchong (smoked tea). Oil smoke. Caramelised sugar. Some ashy red fruits. 
    • Taste
      Oh wow! Full body. Two distinct notes punch in at the same time. One is a big heap of earthy peat and the other is some glazed smoked meat. Then a wash of red fruits and dry wood. Old socks. Mossy rocks. Brine.
    • Finish
      Long. Thick black cough syrup, cherry cigarello smoke and bbq smoke. Lingering woodspice on the tongue.
