Whisky Reviews for Kiss from Kirkwall 2007 ANHA

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.92 points

  1. schero scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A beautiful highland park. Unmistakable.
    • Nose
      Flowery fragrant malt, light sea air, wet stones, sugared oranges, light and again very flowery smoke, water brings some woody notes to the front
    • Taste
      Here, the light peat smoke, floral, vanilla, again sweet malt, the nose is completely reflected again, very creamy, a bit peppery, a lot of heat
    • Finish
      Much heat, then sweet and mineral, quite bitter but somehow pleasant, the light smoke makes the finish nice and long

    "The next sip is wonderfully creamy and now looks sweeter and fruity." Oh yes, this malt can be really dangerous, every sip makes Kiss from Kirkwall smoother and more pleasing. At first I somehow got used to the peculiarity of this bottling, but the longer this malt is in the glass, the more addictive it is. Here, too, I have to mention again, as a lover of sherrylastigen bottling I do a bit harder with bourbon casks, and this malt has fully convinced me! (For me) unusual but delicious! As I write these lines, the intense and fresh peppermint note returns powerfully and leaves a wonderfully creamy walnut aroma ... Great!
    • Nose
      Occasionally, long and tough legs stick to the glass wall and fascinate me. With every tasting or dram I'm always fascinated by the look of a whisky. In this case, extremely long drops on the glass wall draw their paths back into the glass, bright amber shimmers and glitters in the glass enchantingly. The first impression of the nose takes a little getting used to ... Slightly smoky peat swells from the Premium Snifter, the alcohol is quite present, but does not bother. Sugar and sweetness penetrate through the peaty note, vanilla mixes with slightly burnt caramel and dark, spicy wood tones. A slightly fresh pinch dissolves from the otherwise rather dark nose, somehow I have problems to define the flavors properly. Sweetness, fruit, smoke, peat, fresh mint and somehow somehow "dirty". After about 10 minutes, the nose opens a little and velvety peach comes slowly to advantage. The fruit flavors are (even if it sounds funny) rather fruity and not sweet, always slightly smoky aromas through the nose, here and there flashes a handful of peat. In the next second the nose changes and fruity elements dominate the nose for a moment. At the moment, vineyard peach, nectarines and a touch of apricot are clearly perceptible, and more and more sweetness is coming to the fore. Sweet sugar, suppressed smoke and slightly sprittig, the flavors change constantly.
    • Taste
      Sweet and spicy, the Kiss from Kirkwall spills over the tongue. Immediately, the alcohol from the palate crawls up the nose and tickles neatly in the nose. The second sip is carried by dark wood and fruit flavors. Chocolate and hazelnuts rest on the tongue, a touch of sulfur (no, it is not sulfur anyway) gives the taste a dark and oily note. Dark grain flavors and heather herbs blend with spicy and dark wood elements, a touch of walnut is intensified and spreads intensively on the palate. The next sip is wonderfully creamy and now looks sweeter and more fruity. With this tasty style, the taste goes into the reverberation.
    • Finish
      Fresh mint and dark nut flavors start auspiciously the aftertaste. Walnuts and dark wood flavors are fine in the background, spicy meadow or heather herbs stamp their echo. Tart and spicy wood tones are mixed with sweetness and fruit. For a long time, the different aromas in the entire mouth area rest before they suddenly fade away very quickly.
