Description

The Ileach Peated Islay Malt

The Ileach Peated Islay Malt is robustly peaty, with an unmistakable breath of the seashore, the Ileach is a true whisky of Islay.

The Ileach Peated Islay Malt 40% is a peaty single malt from a secret Islay distillery, this has received rave reviews from whisky critics and has a solid core of peat and a lovely rich style.

The Vintage Malt Whisky Co. was founded in 1992 by Brian Crook, an honours graduate in Food Science with twenty years experience in the malt whisky industry, latterly as Export Director for one of Scotland’s principal distillers.

The aim was to produce a range of malt whiskies from Scotland’s finest distilleries Ileach

“The name The Ileach Peated Islay Malt is self explanatory. The version at drinking strength was more than okay.

This one has a cask strength of 58%, which is considerate. No word on the distillery, although many believe it to be a young Lagavulin. I am not so sure.

Undoubtedly many sherry casks were used in the mix, for besides seaweeds and peat, this nose also offers quite some fruit and even chocolate. Pears and apricots, followed by figs and dates.

Then the peat returns and adds goat cheese and wet earth. A touch medicinal, but not overly so. You know those dades that are wrapped in bacon? Yep, that’s it, but in liquid form.

It is mouth coating with a good body. Immediately very powerful peat and spices with loads of maritime elements (my brain shouts ‘Laphroaig!’). Then the fruit kicks in. Wonderfully sweet, making this whisky quite complex. I am impressed.

The long finish is warm and lingers with a battle between sweet and salt. It leaves the mouth as good as completely dry”.

AnCnoc 12 YO

Light, yet complex, it’s smooth yet challenging, each twist and turn delivers a surprise. This is a dram that has something for everyone. The nose delivers soft very aromatic notes with a hint of honey and lemon in the foreground. The palate is sweet to start with an appetising fruitiness and a long smooth finish.

Glenfarclas 15 YO

An incredible dram from Glenfarclas, we can't say enough about it. It's a juicy, Christmas cake of a whisky, absolutely huge! This 15 year old matured in sherry wood, a superb malt which earned 95 points from Jim Murray. A lot of the whisky in this is clearly much older than 15 years, this is a really sherried dram and we love it.

Dalmore 18 YO 43%

Dalmore's stunning 18 year old Highland malt is as rich, fruity and spicy as you could ever want from a Dalmore. Kudos to Dalmore for creating another veritable chocolate orange of a whisky - a surefire hit, and great for the colder months. It is aged for 14 years in American oak, followed by three years in Matusalem sherry butts, before a final year in sherry butts. One for the sherry monsters amoungst you.

Caol Ila 12YO

Big peaty and smoky, yet amazingly soft and rounded. Classically Islay. Medium weight, but still packing plenty of potent phenols, this is a refined, powerful dram with a compensating oiliness. A balanced, peaty beauty.

Amrut Fusion gets its name from the fact that it uses two barleys: Indian and Scottish - with the latter being peated for good measure.
