Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky 750ml
McClelland's Islay Single Malt is a range of Single Malt Scotch whiskies from four of Scotland's key whisky distilling regions—Highland, Islay, Speyside and Lowland. T&A McClelland's was established in 1818 as a whisky blending and export company. Morrison Bowmore began producing this range of single malt whiskies in its memory, with each expression created to represent a different Scotch region with its classic characteristics. This one represents the Islay region, which are known for their predominantly peaty/smoky/briny/rich characteristics.

The principal Islay Single Malt I tasted. I avoided them in light of this one. My terrible I ought to have picked another! Iodine salty and no joy is the thing that I recall. Not as smokey and peaty as I might want.

This is the most exceedingly awful Scotch I have ever had. The sense of taste is only smoke and theres no multifaceted nature here at all. On the off chance that you think the flavor of a pit fire to be engaging at that point maybe this one is for you however Id suggest spending slightly more and getting something increasingly strong.

As expressed previously this is the main genuine decision for single malt islay under $50 (which it is a large portion of the cost of). A lot of peat smoke however a little on the sweet side and does not have the dry delayed flavor impression of numerous different islays.

I love the smoke so was searching for a minimal effort Islay to attempt as most are well over $40. This was just $20 went in with low desires as surveys were blended. In any event its a solitary malt and hypothesis is its from Bowmore as they own the McClelland brand(some hypothesize 5 yr old). Poured slick sticks to the glass truly great. Strong peat smoke bandaids and olives on the button. As it opens the smoke fades a little and salty restored meat moves in with some malt. Dainty slick mouthfeel brings more pleasantness than anticipated. Its malt caramel and salt water with roast. Has a greasy/oily note that comes as pleasantness blurs. Still brings some smoke however not as much as nose guarantees. Finish is medium with ashy smoke and oily scorch. This does not have the refinement power and unpredictability of the genuine peat monsters(such as Ardbeg).. its not on that level yet is evaluated as needs be. What it has is Islay smoke acceptable maltiness and a spending value this bests mixes in this range imo. Its not for everybody however its kinda filthy and harsh around the edges. It grew on me however as I invested energy with the container. I would pay the extra and get the genuine article however for $20 this is a decent modest Islay introduction. 75/100 ........If this is the Bowmore expendable stuff Im anticipating attempting what they really put their name on

Tasting Notes
Nose
An ambiguous sweetness comes up first followed by some smoked meat, peat and lots of vanilla. A light tropical fruit (banana heavy), a bit of melon, smoked fish and brine. Little hints of iodine, dried fruit, turmeric, char and a fairly strong alcohol burn give this an aroma that has promise, but gets beat down by the stronger funky notes.
Taste
All malt and no bite. Some light notes of vanilla, banana heavy tropical fruit, coconut, a little char, a little peat, a little smoke and a weird funk. The nose is vastly more complex than the palate with this whisky and that absence makes it feel like something is missing.
Finish
A light nutty character with some malt, banana, Nilla Wafers and weird funk. It’s mercifully short.
