    Absolutely fantastic whisky. One my go to favourites. Smokiness on the nose, followed by brine, peat and smoke. The sheer flavours that explode in the mouth give a new lease of life to your taste buds. Cheaper version of Talisker.

    I am not a scotch drinker, but this one was/is fantastic. Strong smoke flavor and a smooth finish.

    Really pleasant and a gentle stepping stone to more peaty offerings from the Islay. Smooth, slightly oily a simple finish.

    Tasted more like a cleaning product than Islay whisky.

    Just tried this from a tasting set I received and it is very nice. Very smokey and peaty. I would love to buy a bottle but a little to expensive for me. Maybe one day. A very nice whisky ??

    Peaty taste with underlying sweetness. Lacks the depth of taste of the best Islays but it provides a good value glass for a relaxing evening rather than one to really savour

    Way to peaty for my taste. Honestly I'd rather buy a bottle of Teacher's than Ileach.

    Ileach has a nose which calms,& relaxes,then savour the smooth peatyness as it arrives,& stays around satisfying flavour buds for seconds,which feel like forever.

    First time I drank this fella I didn't really like it. It wasn't untill I was sitting after a long week of working everyday for 10 hours , smoking my pipe and adding a little bit of water to the cup that I understood how good this whisky is. Certainly one of my favourites and I highly recommend. I'll argue that for it's price it's one of the better whiskies out there

    I have a very sweet tooth in whiskey and usually dont like peaty but I am so impressed with this whiskey. It is completely smooth along the toucge and full flavoured and you only get the peat hit as it goes down. The anonymous post is from a begging who cannot yet appreciate the peat at all like I was but seriously. If you want to start to appreciate peat look no further and if you are a regular peat head you will be nicely surprised here. For 30 you cannot loose and will only gain.

    Not a connoisseur by any means, but I do like a good single malt. Very disappointed in this. Tasted more like Dettol than whisky (other antiseptics are available). Fortunately it was a gift so has cost me nothing.

    One of the best single malts I've ever tasted, and I've tasted a great many. I agree with Dr Smith's review.

    Having read some reviews of this malt I was unsure to buy but curiosity got the better of me. Having had an evening with a few drams I certainly side to the fact it packs all the qualities of a true Islay albeit not in the punchy lingering flavours of the Lagavulin but then priced alongside Laphroig I am surprised. It does have "Legs" and being well peated holds it's own in the Islay world. We also have to remember that everybodies pallet is different so one mans pleasure is anothers poison. For me, a good value tipple trying to get onto the podium but just not quite there, however a glass of not quite is better than one empty. Personally it's one I would go for again.

    packs a peaty punch but smooth enough to appeal to my non peaty friends. good value for money

  • Robert Swinhoe 12 May 2014

    There is much speculation on which distillery this 'secret' Islay malt comes from. I have to say that I don't think any of the great distilleries on Islay would own up to this! It is very underpowered, completely unbalanced and has more than a taint of the dreaded sulphur from a poor sherry cask. Not what a fancy label portrays or the picture depicts this is NOT representative of the superb Islay malts. R. Swinhoe

    This is a simply wonderful big Islay dram. Very full flavoured and sweet with a denseness that gives it a liqueur-like quality. Very rounded for its age. Has the richness and fullness you expect from a south shore Islay. The flavours fade slowly in the long finish. Superb.

  • Sean Sankey 8 August 2013

    Wow. lots of rave reviews for this one. Well I'll balance things up a bit by offering my view that the Ileach is terrible. Really quite awful stuff. Ok the nose is standard peat but the finish evaporates as soon as you've swallowed just leaving you with something quite acrid, which is the combination of new make spirit and E150. Best avoid.

  • Fraser Forbes 15 May 2013

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

  • Alexandros G. 15 January 2011

    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!!
