Cask Islay is a small batch release from A.D. Rattray from an undisclosed distillery on the island. A whisky that will entice both Islay fans and be a great place for neophytes to start.Tasting Notes (1)
Golden Islay sunset.
Warm & fiery, roasting peat kiln, some citrus notes after the smoke.
Oily, burnt toffee, juicy barley and rich peat smoke.
Lively, peaty and full of flavour.
This is a surprisingly smooth, slightly smokey, peaty, honeyed wonder. Fuller flavoured than most with a balance between the fruity and peaty flavours which I have really enjoyed. I think it's a steal. Just have to order some more........
A kind friend who knows a lot more about whisky than I, bought me a bottle of Cask Islay for my birthday. I had asked another friend to buy me a Lagavulin. Much as I love the Lagavulin, the Cask Islay was a revelation for me. Intense, peaty but not too much, smoky but not too much. Just gorgeous. When I’d worked my way through the bottle, I noticed that the (more expensive) Lagavulin was only half empty. I placed an order for two more bottles of Cask Islay at what I thought was a very fair price for something so delightful. What more can I say? Just try it.
Bought this 6 months ago and just opened it. A real (pleasant!) surprise. Light to medium peat with pepper, citrus and juniper notes. Smells more spirit driven than is tastes. On the palate it's a lot more refined, orange zest and wood smoke with a lingering finish. 4.5/5 - Very good value and will buy again.
OMG, to be honest i am not expert but to me this smelt like a cleaning substance from a hospital, the taste just as bad, don't get me wrong i am sure for a lot this is a good one but not for me . Can any one guide me to another whiskey to try not this style. 3 stars as sure it will suit someone.
Haven't opened this bottle yet, but I've had it before. It's a classic Islay malt with a particularly smooth finish, and smoke and coal tar lingering in the background so not in your face like some. I love it, very drinkable......perhaps too drinkable!
