Ileach Cask Strength

by Oliver Klimek on October 4, 2010

Mystery Malt from Islay – 58%

My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Bright gold
Nose: Smoke on the water, fire in the hospital.
Palate: Very strong peat, lemon zest, cloves, nutmeg, slightly adstringent.
Finish: Long, dry and smoky.
Overall: If you like Laphroaig, you will like this one too. A young and heavy peat bomb that takes no prisoners. But beware, the next batch just might come from somewhere else. And it’s not cheaper than the Laph 10 CS

Rating: 87/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

Available at the Whisky Exchange

Have you tried it recently? Tasted it blind against laphi cs and its still almost the same, just younger. My guess would be around 6 years. Very good value for money even more so since the laphi cs batches are getting more and more rare and expensive (which is a shame).
