      worth trying, you might love it

      I found myself in a little whiskey shop in Edinburgh and the chap was trying to show me some whiskeys which would open my palette. When he showed me this one and said it had a really 'creamy' taste I immediately purchased it, along with a few other 5cl sample bottles.

      It tastes like a high quality whiskey, no horrible taste or burn, there are undoubtedly people out there who really like this, unfortunately for me I am not one of them. Maybe I expected too much 'creamyness', honestly I was expecting baileys levels of cream when really I should have expected something more subtle, I can taste the cream in the aftertaste after a glass or two though.

      The bottle has a reasonably look, but definitely looks like one of the locals designed it rather than a professional design house- and if a professional design house created it with the intention of it looking like a local made it, well they hit the nail on the head.

      There is a slight cream note on the aftertaste, but the predominant taste is of whiskey- i'm sorry that i'm not able to give more than that but i'm pretty new to this. It's slightly smokey [islay], and not very floral [speyside?] (they're the 2 terms I know for whiskey) so it's somewhere in the middle, which makes sense because it's an Islay/speyside blend.

      Colour is quite light and straw-like, doesn't look like there's much to it in terms of colouration.

      A good whiskey, worth trying a sample bottle to see if it's to your tastes. The bottle doesn't have much to say about itself so maybe do some reading online if you're interested.

      a blended whiskt from Scotland

      On a recent holiday on the Isle of Skye I spotted a bottle of Isle of Skye blended whisky in the local co-op. I have previously bought Talisker whisky from the Isle of Skye but had never heard of Isle of Skye whisky. As it was on offer for under £11 I decided to buy a bottle.

      As the name suggests Isle of Skye Scotch whisky originates from Skeabost on the Isle of Skye. However to- day it is produced by Ian MacLeod's distillery in Broxburn, Scotland. It is a blended whisky that has been aged for 8 years.

      The whisky has a lovely rich amber colour but the real test of any whisky has to be the taste! The first thing to say is that I definitely detected a peaty aroma on opening the bottle and as I don't usually detect any aroma with alcohol it must be quite distinctive! I usually drink whisky with ginger ale but for the purpose of this review I tasted it neat. This whisky has a very pronounced smoky taste that I found quite pleasant. It tastes smooth and is easy to drink, even neat! However I prefer my whisky as a long drink with a mixer.

      I actually went out and bought another bottle of this whisky as a present, much cheaper that a bottle of Talisker! Like most spirits Skye whisky is 40% proof so needs to be handled with care unless you want the hangover from hell!

      If you like whisky you may enjoy this one, it certainly tastes different!
