The Ileach Cask Strength features in the list of IMMORTAL DRAMS in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible. In his 2008 bible he named it  ” World Whisky of the Year – Runner Up”.

Amazingly, the tasting notes for the weaker version are exactly the same as for this sea facing monster. Except here the enormity has risen up by a significant factor, as has the intensity of each vital cog in its make-up. Perhaps the only change is the honey thread to the sweetness that pervades throughout. Otherwise, identical. A wondrous, take it with you when you die malt that is easily a contender for whisky of the year.

Nose: A thick chunk of peat has been dissolved in my glass

Taste: The oil-peat-barley balance is spot on as is the bitter sweet tone: just stunning

Finish: The peat dissipates slowly to leave a slightly bitterish oaky influence but the spices compensate.
