  1. SwiftyMcVeigh scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Standard Islay whiskey in drinking strength, which can be bought for 25 to 30 euros. Not particularly complex. Would estimate it to be a maximum of 5 years.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Smoked pork belly, salty and sweet, with a citrus fruit behind it. A little grassy. I can't find more.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Alcohol well integrated. Smoke and smoked ham. Citrus and floral notes, slightly sweet. Overall well balanced.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium length, ash remains at the end.

    Notes by producer;

    PEAT Pure Islay is the companion to PEAT, trading its feisty full strength for a more approachable and easy-sipping 45% ABV. Packed with Islay smoke, it's still a go-to whisky for both cocktails and long drinks, as well as being an excellent dram to sit with long into the night. Created using whiskies from a handful of distilleries from across Islay, PEAT Pure Islay is a well-balanced and easy-drinking everyday whisky to keep all smoky dram fans happy.

    Cask details;
    Each batch is made of around 60 casks from distilleries in the north and south of Islay.

    Tasting Notes;

    Orange peel and thick cut bacon with sea shells and smouldering coals.

    Hickory smoke and hints of Lapsang Souchong tea with salted caramel and dark chocolate.

    Sea spray and baked apple fade, leaving heavy smoke, truffle salt and sweet spice.

  5. Donwaldorf scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A simple, affordable whiskey that does the job at a drink with friends.
    • Nose
      Mineral turn, fresh fruit and some floral notes.
    • Taste
      Light, watery, mineral spin .... Little complexity.
    • Finish
      Average length, salty peat, some spices and a hint of bitterness.

  6. MaltyMillionaire scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Pretty nice overall, but there is a bitter undertone to the palate and finish. Nose is the best part, as I love that farmy profile.
    • Nose
      Softer nose. Fresh, farmy, brine, peat, mild ash, lemon.
    • Taste
      Creamy and bitter, runny honey, peat, smoke, lemon, and salt. At the end the bitter notes become more prevalent.
    • Finish
      Medium finish, billowing, smoky, runny honey, and peat. Long bitterness lingers.

  8. coldsun scored this whisky 62 points Expert Senior

    Peaty, smoky with notes of gum, ash, zesty citrics, needless and vanilla. Has elements of gentle and deep barley malt and green fruits and taste and finish. IMHO full proof one tastes stronger.

    Daily sipper, good PQ, would buy this again anytime (for this price)
