I know, I am posting a little late today. The day sadly got away from me but, better late than never so here is a quick Monday review.
We recently came across The Six Isles Blended Malt Scotch Whisky and when you are huge peat smoke whisky fan like we are, well you buy a bottle. This little gem is produced by Ian Macleod Distillers and bottled by William Maxwell & Co. Ltd. For this product they take whiskies from six of Scotland’s Islands and they blended them together. The whiskies used in the blend are Islay, Jura, Skye, Mull, Orkney and Arran.
Nose: smoke, salt, citrus
Palate: creamy, smoke, pepper and light notes of honey
Finish: peat smoke
Cost: $40 (Depending on where you purchase)
It’s creamy, full of smoke and somewhat surprising. I use the word surprising because I was not expecting to like this whisky, but I did. It’s a whisky I would drink on its own, but we are also going to use it in a hot toddy as we think it will be perfect for that.
This whisky takes your palate on a journey around the Scottish Isles. It delivers on smoke, affordability and drinkability. And, although I found this whisky to be very drinkable, I wouldn’t say this whisky is for everyone. I found it to be quite smoky so, if you don’t like peat smoke, you are not going to like this. If you do like it, you are not only going to enjoy the price of the bottle but the quality you get.
Note: The contents on my blog are solely my opinion. To me every palate is different! Although I may or may not like a product, I always recommend for people to try it and make up their own minds.
