Tasting Notes

Tasting notes from James Angus

Appearance: Looks like whisky.

Nose: Islay and Island TCP, iodine, peat.

Palate: Islay and Island TCP, iodine, peat.

Finish: Glorious, glorious Islay and Island TCP, iodine, peat.

Selim's tasting notes

Nose: Bold earthy peat, smoked meats and a slightly medicinal undercurrent. 

Palate: Warm notes of smoke, oak, and nuts. A sherry influence brings red fruit, underneath the peat. 

Finish: Chocolate with coastal smoke.

Review by Mike Bennett of The Whisky Odyssey

Appearance: Pale straw, forms a thin line before gradually falling as thick, oily legs.

Nose: An immediate hefty waft of dry, earthy, ashy peat smoke followed by barbecued pork, zesty lemon, coastal sea breeze underpinned by subtle medicinal peat.

Palate: Thick, creamy mouthfeel. Dry peat smoke, barbecued meats, smoked fish, lemon citrus, Muscovado sugar, red berries, coastal saltiness, nutty oak and a prickle of white pepper heat. A few drops of water brings out more of that dry smoke and more oaky astringency.

Finish: Soft brown sugar, milk chocolate and coastal salt whilst the peat becomes more medicinal. A few drops of water bring out more chocolate together with increased oaky astringency and maritime brine at the expense of some of that phenolic smokiness.

Summary: Successfully marrying together peated whiskies with such strong individual characteristics is a real skill, and this one has been done so well. The balance is fantastic, allowing those typical Ledaig, Caol Ila and Laphroaig (Williamson) notes to come through without clashing or blurring together and losing definition. If you like your whisky on the peaty side, I’d be very surprised if you didn’t like this.

Legends Of The Peativerse is a charity collaboration between Whisky Punks, East City Whisky Club (ECWC), and Chapter 7; £10 from every sale will go to The Trussell Trust. To quote James Angus, this is a "rather strong and punchy Islay / Island based blend" and you may, quite possible, get notes of... Islay and Island TCP, iodine, and peat. Perhaps.

What about taxes?

All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.

UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.

We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.

For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs.
