Whisky Reviews for East Shore Islay Malt 2008 LT

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.71 points

  1. coldsun scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    Flavor with elements of peat, oak, wood, citruses, vanilla, flowers. Flavor is very strong with some sharpness (may be because of spices). Taste has notes of peat, wood, spices and sweetness. Finish is with elements of peat, dried fruits, smoke and vanilla with the heating spices at the end.

  2. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A young and boisterous Islay malt. Very present on the nose with lots of maritime character and a subtle fruitiness. Surprisingly very sweet on the palate with an already good balance of fruitiness and spiciness, nicely wrapped in lingering peaty flavours. Water tames the lovely fruity notes bringing more oak and peat to the fore.

    I thank Dailydram.de for the sample and the photograph!

    • Nose
      The nose starts off with fresh cut peat and subtle smoked fish. This is complemented with barley sugar, vanilla and a touch of lemon. Subtle notes of tar and burnt matches arrive along with tender medicinal flavours and gauze bandage.
    • Taste
      Surprisingly sweet on the palate with delicate barley sugar and lingering fruits, such as bananas, tangerines and gentle yellow pear. This is accompanied by an intensely warming spiciness of pepper, oak, nutmeg and allspice, complemented with lingering peat. Quite intense and delicate.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long, warm and creamy with barley sugar, subtle vanilla, peat and tender dry oak.

      With water: The fruitiness is significantly tamed when adding a splash of water. There's more medicinal flavours coming through with gauze banadage, peat, ash and tar. Dry oak in the background. Still sweet on the palate with barley sugar, vanilla, accompanied with a slightly tamed spiciness of oak, pepper, and allspice. The lovely fruitiness, however, is almost gone. The finish shows medium length with a tender warming spiciness of pepper and peat, with more drying notes of oak on the tail.
