  1. schero scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A delicious drop with extremely great PLV. Springbanky Highland Park
    • Nose
      Flowery and slightly fruit-sour sweetness with light subliminal smoke, mineral to maritime, slightly grainy and malty, bitter lemon juice, a bit stuffy warehouse in the background, after the first sip, a lot of vanilla is added
    • Taste
      Acidic tangy onset, lots of pressure on the tongue, light mineral smoke, some pepper, citrus-like lemon zest, water makes it nice creamy sweet, white wine, vanilla
    • Finish
      Especially mineral on the finish, light oak, spicy without great bitterness, citrus notes on the palate, water makes the finish very round and harmonious

    A great ex-Bourbon representative! Straightforward but with a lot of island character! Top! (89 / 90P).
    • Nose
      Butterscotch, wet stones by the sea, mineral, lemon;
    • Taste
      Straight forward, mineral, maritime notes, lemon, malt, altogether for 63% extremely tasty and balanced!
    • Finish
      Straight forward, strong, mineral, long!

    What Serge (praised be his name) says:

    Orkney 10 yo 2007/2018 (63%, Claxton’s, hogshead, cask #1836-008, 330 bottles)

    63% vol.? Wish me luck… Assuming that the cask was filled at 63.5% vol., we would say that much has been lost within those ten years… Colour: white wine. Nose: rather massive, raw, a tad burnt, a tad feinty, very porridge-y, but there are notes of wet rocks, limestone and chalk underneath… I can’t wait to add a good ten drops of Vittel (no Nestlé don’t send me any monies)… With water: perfect mineral, grassy, smoky, barley-y, lime-y distillate. What I sometimes call ‘a blade’. Some raw wool too. Mouth (neat): I think this is great, but I’m not too sure. Grapefruit, very lemony IPA (Citra-led), raw neutral eau-de-vie (apple), white cherries… With water: immaculate spirit. Smoky barley, limestone, plasticine, soot, lemon, smoky porridge, a touch of salt… Finish: long and dry, with more pepper. Bitterer aftertaste (leaves, chlorophyll). Comments: good, it’s perhaps not immensely complex, but it sure is one of the finest distillates on this planet. SGP:362 - 88 points.
