Ileach Peaty is an independently bottled Islay malt from the Highlands and Islands Whisky Company. It is a bargain considering the price. No one knows for sure what distillery it is from but rumour has it that it is a 5yr old Lagavulin.

Nose is big, smoky bacon, Peat and sweet smoke. In the mouth you get more smoke, hint of vanilla but it is overpowered by earty, lightly spiced smoke. The finish is as you would expect...smoky. Tingle in the middle of the tongue.

I wish this was 46% but even still it is lovely.

I've just had a sample of Ileach, very tasty whisky and Lagavulin comes to mind but i'm not 100% sure, i must have a bottle for further experimentation

I'm told different batches may be from different distilleries.

I'd compare it to Lagavulin but not 100% sure,,,,,anyway, it's very nice and when you're enjoying a good whisky, who really cares? I've tried all from Islay and really its down to personal taste..it could even be be Bowmore???
