True Taste of Islay - Peated Islay Single Malt Whisky 40%vol.


True Taste of Islay - Peated Islay Single Malt Whisky 40%vol.

An Islay-Dram as it is written in the book. Peat, smoke, more peat, more smoke and a little seaweed, very little fruit aromas and vanilla and caramel hidden somewhere. The Ileach is a young and peaty single malt from an unnamed Islay distillery, available in 40%vol. and Cask Strength (58%vol.) expressions.


Which distilleries supply malt for the island blend is a secret, however. But the possibilities can be narrowed down somewhat by means of the exclusion procedure...

Some claim that Ileach Whisky contains Lagavulin... or Caol Ila... but we don't know for sure. Ileach Whisky is and remains a mystery malt and probably only a handful of people know where this characterful islander comes from.

Nose: Similar to Tobermory, with youthful peatiness; fresh and pure. "A thick chunk of peat has been dissolved in my glass".
Tongue: The oil-peat-barley balance is spot on as is the bitter sweet tone. Overwhelming intensity with mild oak notes and great complexity.
Finish: Peaty. No sweetness from oak maturation, hence uninhibited youthfulness.
