Islay Mist 8

Image

Grade: B-

Type: Scotland, Blend, Islay

Age: 8 Yrs

ABV: 40.00%

Price: $30

Availability: Better Whiskey Stores

This is a blend of Laphroaig, Highland and other Islay region whiskey. Of course, it goes without saying that anything with Laphroaig in it is worth trying. The nose has medium peat and vanilla. The palate is really smooth and light, oily, and lightly sweetend with some smoke that lingers into the finish. This is a quality expression ESP. considering it is $30 a bottle. The peat taste is there but much lighter than most Islay single malts. I would try this if you like a lighter peat taste or just want a taste that is gentle and silky from the above stated regions. Good buy…
