Islay Journey Blended Scotch Whisky
Antti,
It is a very good, intense, Blended Scotch Whisky that has a smoky birth; while a warm & oceanic life leads to a long death at sea with notes of seaweed & citrus.

Doron,
Smooth and full bodied
Islay Journey Blended Scotch Whisky
Matthew,
Color is a light straw. Nose is peat smoke, with mild notes of saltiness. First sip is salty and peaty, with peat spice and a brief flash of fruit and vanilla following. Earthy/briny flavors are the lasting flavor in the finish, though it all blends together in a cohesive flavor profile. Mouthfeel is smooth, though maybe a little thin. Overall, a nice peaty flavor, but not enough other flavor notes to standout.

Stephen,
Interesting malt notes, but the chocolate was not noticeable to me. Maybe overall too earthy and not smooth enough.

Todd,
Ok blend. More earthy. Wouldn’t seek it out but it was fine.

Brendan,
Mild to moderate peat, with more peat on the nose. Earthiness is most prevalent when tasting, followed by malt. The seaweed comes in with the aftertaste and on the exhale. Overall I would put this as an average scotch, but is certainly something easy to drink that I would come back to.

Blech! Tastes like someone dropped a piece of sod in my whisky.

Burton,
I'm glad I tried a blind sample of this. I would have avoided if i had known it was a blend. I admit it. I was wrong. This is obviously Islay and it competes well with Laphroaig and Ardbeg, which I guessed it was. Nice smoke and fruit. I'm not sure what it costs, but it is worth a look.

Stefanie,
Smooth. Peated but not overpowering. Not very sweet, the vanilla and fruit flavors are there but light. I dont get the earthy or seaweed in the flavor...and seaweed is distinctive..but I do get it in the scent.

Andrej,
I would give it 8,5 rate if possible. I liked it very much. It is only that I do not link vanilla to whiskey. That is my problem though.
