Reviews and Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Dark Golden

Nose / Aroma / Smell
There's a hint of peat on the nose that's gentler ― not a full-on smokiness. The wheat character is apparent and there's a touch of sea spray in there as well.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
It's spicy on the palate with toasted nut notes, dates, oak, and a distant campfire in the background.

Finish
Finishes with dark fruit as well as baking spice notes where nutmeg and clove stand out.

Top reviews for Broken Barrel Isle Of Peat:

— Fantastic bought for a gift and he lives it

— The peat really comes in at the end and was surprisingly good. Fun unique drink.

— A really nice whiskey, not phenomenal, but drinkable. I could definitely taste the hints of peat brought on by the Islay barrels used. For the age it was, it was good. If it was older (like most whisky) it would be smoother, more drinkable... Maybe use some "Time & Oak" sticks in it for a little fast aging.

The peat really comes in at the end and was surprisingly good. Fun unique drink.
 
Matt
Matt,
Smooth with a little bite to it. Well balanced.

Madreen,
It was smooth, though I would have liked a bit more more peat from the scotch barrels. Good with a steak, or a cigar.
 
Michael
Michael,
I was pleasantly surprised to get as much peat as I got. This could become a regular in bar.
 
Norman
Norman,
I'm not a fan of a lot of peat and it was very distinct with this one, to the point where I didn't even like to finish my first drink. I'll serve it to guests that may like the peat. I have to say, it was a different taste from Bowmore peat or even Laphroig (sp) and Ardbeg. It didn't really match to my palate.

Andrew,
I like American Single Malts. I like Islay Scotch and other peated Scotches. This whiskey fails to exhibit any of the good qualities of either. Tastes like toenails. The bottle looks cool though.
Andrew
Andrew,
To add on, I REALLY wish I had gotten the Angel's Envy instead. It's a million times better than this excuse of a spirit.
Eric
Eric,
This was not for me. It is a strong whiskey that is somewhat harsh to the taste. Maybe the lack of aging was a big factor. I'm not a blended whiskey drinker so I wouldn't be interested in buying it in a store. I'm sure others may find it to their liking.

Don’t do it...I love peat, but this is terrible.

benjamin,
A very strong whiskey! Has an interesting wood flavor profile, smooths out a bit with water, but unfortunately no detectable peat for a peat fan. I’m surprised they bothered any reference to peat in the name. It seems very young too (harsh). I’d be very interested in seeing how they’re barrels do with more aging. Cheers to the ingenuity and effort, it’s definitely an interesting woody flavor.

Daniel,
Drinkable. Not great. Mild Peat finish. I agree with other reviews that this needs more aging. I would expect it to be quite good with after a few more years.

David,
Super young... a blended whiskey from 2 different one year old whiskeys - staved & bottled in Vegas for a company in California... weird supply chain there! In the end, this is a young whiskey that is really only a hint of smoke to it. Tastes young but has promise... would love to have tried this aged longer.
 
SALEM
SALEM,
This was my first bottle through the quarterly selection. I was disappointed in this one. It tasted musty rather than peaty and very harsh. This may be because it was not aged. I hope Flaviar makes better quality scotch selection available for the quarterly inventory.
 
JD
JD,
I would leave this one alone. Not a fan.
 
Todd
Todd,
Whoever called this peat has never tasted anything with peat. There is absolutely no peat taste to this. At least the bottle was “free”.
 
Michael
Michael,
Didn’t really like this. It was my first bottle from Flaviar. It is definitely underaged and harsh. That is Ok because it is part of the tasting/learning experience. There will be more. But I wouldn’t send this as the first bottle of whisky from Flaviar.
