Whisky Reviews for Orkney Islands 1999 BR

20 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.68 points

  1. thanasist scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Does anyone have any clue why the stated age of this bottle is 16 y.o. while the distillation took place in 1999 and bottling in 2018 ? Normally it should be 18 or 19 y.o. 

    Tried it end of September. One of the best whiskies I had for some time. No matter if it is 16 or 18 y.o. it is superb and doesn't make you regret the money spent on it. I am not a big fun of HP but this one definitely made me want to try more Orkney IB

  2. LDB scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    This is a full legal HP with everything that belongs to it! Removes the 18 year old OA completely, not only because of the alcohol strength (which is almost terribly well integrated, so that there is no desire for water), but simply because of the intense aromas, which is probably due to a very good barrel selection and prudent maturation have come about.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Delicate notes of smoke, creamy, honey-like sweetness with salt - fresh sea spray in flowering heather, with excellently integrated alcohol. Dry pine forest with ripe pineapple on top
    • Taste
      90 90
      Creamy with significant amounts of smoke, at the same time beautiful sweetness of ripe lemons with freshly cut vanilla pod
    • Finish
      89 89
      Smoke and fruit aroma are transformed seamlessly into distinct spiciness with some resinous, ginger-like sharpness

  3. Eilean a' Cheo scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Naked characterful Highland Park.. quite peated
    • Nose
      91 91
      Wet leaves, earth, verbena, lemon peels,paraffin, peat, cough syrup, heather honey
    • Taste
      92 92
      Waxy smoked lemons with a pinch of salt plus liquid herbs.. the peat grows bigger.. wonderful taste..and quite powerful
    • Finish
      90 90
      Lemony, waxy, peated with a herbal dry elegance

  4. Schnappsdrossel scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Pure Highland Park almost without Sherry influence. Who does not need it -> great catch.
    • Nose
      Sharp without water. Already tried - not my thing. With water: green, resinous, sections of plants and coniferous forest, freshly sawn branches, autumn leaves ragged in early November, for HP strong smoke, earthy, and acacia honey. In the second attempt, the last sherry remnants are recognizable, with much fantasy ripe orange. (For the Battler: Something about the empty Strathisla bottle smelled.) A little later wet pebbles and a truckload of malt. Even more acacia honey.
    • Taste
      Soft with enough water. I suspect around 48%. Directly the "smell" of damp earth and old foliage, garden waste, and a smoke, as if someone had left a splash of Laphroaig in the glass. Acacia honey, coniferous forest, linden blossom. No sherry.
    • Finish
      First acacia honey. Fir needles, bark fragments, resin, dirt and smoke in the hair and all garments. Old, dry wood, a burned and smoldering campfire. Later comes out again old foliage.
