Ileach Cask Strength Bottling Note

A great Islay single malt from an unnamed distillery. The Ileach always scores well with the critics, this cask strength edition was awarded a mindblowingly high 97 points by Jim Murray in his 2010 Whisky Bible.

 

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Whiskyfun.com

An interesting single malt by the ‘Finlaggan people’. Could this be Lag… ach, err… in…? Colour: gold. Nose: could be. Some sweet peat, oranges, kumquats (whatever my distinguished Dutch friends say when they’re not busy with their motorhomes), some slightly rubbery tar (a Lagavulin marker, that), and some ink. New magazines. With water: oh yes, gets dry, gravelly, with notes of new wellies, carbon, saltpetre, soot… Mouth (neat): brilliant! Some rounded, jammy and tarry peat, with some ‘good’ rubber again, a drop of tincture of iodine, perhaps a bit of dried pear, and simply an exquisite smoky fruitiness. With water: careful, one drop too many will kill it. Otherwise, great, sappy, greatly rubbery, with bitter oranges, smoke, salted seashell, perhaps a drop of Jaeger… Finish: long, very salty, almondy and rubbery. Or when rubber’s totally an asset. Comments: no-name-no-age, but quality’s extremely high. In some rare cases, age is nothing, it’s the bloodlines that tell. 90 Points
