Islay Mist Peated Reserve Review

Islay Mist Peated Reserve Tasted as part of The Whisky Shops w-club Tasting Panel this blended whisky kicks off the beginning of a month dedicated to Blends.

as well as reviews and news on blended whiskies i'll also be taking part in the #12blends tasting which can be followed right here on site

I really enjoyed this dram and although i don't think it's particularly peated i did think i could easy sit and enjoy it most nights.

Keep an eye out on The Whisky Shop for this appearing soon.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

There's smoke, but for something that says it's the "peated Reserve" its certairnly reserved, im finding some edges of medicinal smoke like a gentle laphroaig in the background, with large waves of sherried fruit and almost prunes in thre too, theres gentle dewynes from grain whisk just at the very background also.

Palate

the smoke here is once again quite medicinal and definitely Laphroaig-y but it's still very gentle and has been blended well with a fruity sherried speysider to give it a nice taste. the mix of gentle smoke and prune juice is there along with some raisins and sultanas and some grain like dewy grass characteristics.

Finish

Prunes and gentle medicinal smoke, easy going.
