Today’s blended whisky review is Isle of Skye, 8 year old. This is an 8 year old blend and, judging by the name, it contains Talisker.
I actually sampled this from the whisky advent calendar last year, but thought it deserved the full treatment!
Here are the dramstats:
- Price £17.75
- ABV 40%
Nose: You can smell Talisker peppery smoke underneath a fairly sweet nose with maple syrup and hob nobs.
Palate: Golden syrup cereal bars and mild pepper.
Finish: Sweet oats with bitter caramel and light smoke. Mild and moreish.
Verdict: An enjoyable blend and for the price I would buy it. It’s one of those session drams that I could really get into and end up polishing off a bottle.
