For over 20 years, Laphroaig has been my unbeaten favourite malt. The Ileach beats it comfortably, and is a pleasure to the palet.

This is one of the best every day malts.Peaty and sweet at the same time ,warm ,pleasant and very easy to drink,this dram has won a place in my heart together with the legendary triad of Islay(Ardbeg 10yo,Lagavulin16yo,Laphroaig QS).

Man, this is my holiday tipple. i love this drink because its quaffable and uncomplicated. It has an incredible peatiness and a v. strong Iodine - seaside taste. It is a beautiful whiskey designed for us uncomplicated types. In other words, leaves you shaking your head and sucking your teeth in an attitude of confusion!!

Ileach smells wonderful. Has the bouquet of an Islay whisky alright. The peaty flavour is on the mark as well. I love Islay malts best of all, and this one is proof that there is no such animal as a bad dram from that little piece of heaven called Islay.

I am a huge fan of Lagavulin and so I tried this on a whim. Its definately like Lagavulin - dry, smokey, peppery - but its muchyounger and more raw.I REALLY LIKE THIS and if you are an Islay fan then try it.

After a recent trip to the highlands I purchased a bottle of Ileach 40% mainly because I had never heard of it . having tasted it however the pleasant smoky taste of an Islay malt was there but not to strong. a very pleasing dram and well worth the money
