  1. ASWhisky scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    a nice barrel
    a delicious whisky that you really like to drink
    a pleasure that is rare at this price
    a distillery that hides well behind the barrel, possibly a UA

    near Heaven
    really a 90 point whisky
    • Nose
      Bottle opened - mmh floppy
      directly mother-in-law's best plum rum pot in the nose

      he was always so brilliant
      she has gutted big ripe plums
      Put a big candy in each plum
      all layered in a large ceramic pot
      pressed hard together
      the pot was brimming with squashed plums
      then it was filled with vodka
      She left everything for 8 weeks
      then we were allowed to ran

      so now I'm glad that I can get to the Viking
      schnupper ....

      Plums are also in the glass
      wort
      Nutmeg, cinnamon
      Sherrynoten behind it
      Cinnamon & sugar
      ripe mirabelle
      nice round seasoning

      I will taste with 2 glasses
      in the Snifter it is brighter and sweeter, as are the ripe mirabelles clearly
      in Blender's Glass it is darker and spicier from the notes, later a tart note pulls through the spice

      The Snifter will later add a honey / wax note
      and a nice cocoa note

      Do I smell Erika or do I think too much about HP?
      who wants and / or can smell heather ...;)
    • Taste
      in the beginning he is cool and smooth
      then he tingles on your tongue
      this is life
      Plums on your tongue
      with cinnamon they stick to your palate
      Your flesh is sweet on your tongue

      Your whole mouth is kissed by him
      full-bodied, strong, aromatic

      Cocoa - sweet and fruity in your cheeks
      Your mouth is getting wet
      everything seems to be shrouded in cask

      Wow
    • Finish
      long
      Barrel, seasoning, cinnamon, nutmeg
      Sweet
      cocoa

    Slightly musty. Noticeable alcohol and youth.
    A little sulphur. Something artificial.

    I would have guessed or hoped for an HP. But I can't find any of the typical notes.

    The nose doesn't bode well.
    The first (undiluted) sip isn't really good either.

    Metallic, dull, alcoholic.
    Even water hardly catches him. The alcoholic passes, but the rest is just as bad as without water.

    Sorry - that was nothing...

  4. Drum scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    The alcohol is well integrated, the Orkney tolerates water but is really not a must. The 57.9% can be enjoyed pure. I liked it, it was soft and comfortable.
    • Nose
      A nice soft subtle smoke, almost like a perfume, with floral detergent. Big, heavy flowers, a bit like the smell you get when you walk into a flower shop, but there are also dried fruits and pipe tobacco.
    • Taste
      Light smoke, liquorice, woody and a bit of PX beetroot with liquorice. The smoke recedes more and more into the background.
    • Finish
      It goes down very oily, liquorice and salmiak and tobacco notes. The flow of saliva is nicely stimulated.

  5. Bosi scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    A must for sherry lovers. I think the filling is super delicious, even if it is on the verge of being superimposed. The distillery character also disappears a bit, but in this case that is to be tolerated.
    • Nose
      The sherry barrel influence can be clearly felt in the nose: red fruits in abundance, some freshly impregnated leather, black currant jam and a light spice.
    • Taste
      The taste is very dense with dark chocolate, pickled cherries, tiramisu and plums.
    • Finish
      The finish is long and warm. A bitter sweetness and a hint of liqueur remain in the mouth and throat.

  6. LDB scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Brutally strong and simple, burning and musty, that's the olfactory accompaniment to drive with a split skull not to Valhalla, but to Helheim.
    In any case, Viking imagery cannot hide the shortcomings:
    Even with a lot of patience, a little water and even after months of opening the bottle, I can only find one-dimensionality, namely the taste of fermented plums in which a flame thrower was held and the whole thing was sprinkled with 60% young schnapps.
    At least I don't like this rather superficial style that much.
    Others seem to be celebrating it. Well, each to his own.

    not bad, the alcohol is well integrated. Only at the beginning of the finish could you come across an Orkney with a blind tasting.
    • Nose
      tart at the very first moment, then there are a lot of herbs paired with sherry notes, dried fruits, raisins, some chocolate
    • Taste
      Citrus fruits, notes of sherry, spicy, sweet, some pepper, chocolate. Then becoming bitterly dry
    • Finish
      Citrus and spicy. Sherry notes, dried fruits, plums, dark chocolate

  13. grinface scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    It is "gscheid lecker" (delicious), as we say. However, I would hardly have guessed that this is a Highland Park. Doesn't change the fact that it just tastes really good. Full review (german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2020/05/28/ziggy-fassstark-and-the-highland-parks-from-mars/
    By the way, I recommend that you take a look at the corresponding forum. There you can find a lot of knowledge and good exchange on the subject of whisky. (also german)

  14. aspa scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Plum on the nose, sherry, very nutty, no alcohol, sweet with raisins and slightly musty or slightly smoky.
    The taste is very soft and round, no alcohol, musty, slightly smoky and a lot of sherry with plum and plum. So actually the same as in the nose. Creamy. Dark chocolate, brown sugar and thanks long and smooth in the finish, with cinnamon, cane sugar and a little bitterness but only very little.

    Very tasty sherry HP, that was a great bottle that found its way to me!

  16. Horror_Vacui scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Plums, raisins, both in rum and milk chocolate with cinnamon. Oregano and sage, some ginger.
    Leather and very old wood, subdued smoke (the smoke was stronger when opened, the bottle is now 2/3 empty).

    Mouth:
    Berry (blackberry, raspberry, both overripe), musty wood, dark chocolate, herbs. Plums.
    The development in the mouth is gentle, at first rather dry and slightly bitter, it becomes sweeter and fruity with time in the mouth and salivation.

    Finish:
    Medium in length, initially becoming sweet and musty, slightly bitter.

    89/100

    Conclusion: this is nice drinking whisky with a strong but not too sherry profile. The muff is certainly not for everyone, but it is also not too dominant.

  18. LordBellamy scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    with water: Oh yes, a little water is particularly good for the nose, it becomes even sweeter, and the oloroso character of the sherry becomes more and more clear (raisins, toffee), as well as the cinnamon, sulfur and muff are increasingly displaced, in taste and finish but it stays dirty as usual

    Conclusion: A whisky completely divided into two, just with water. The nose is beautifully sweet, balanced with some slight hints, in the mouth and finish the malt changes to a little dirty pig, which defends itself against the sweet nose with a little sulfur and forest floor and bitter cocoa. If you like contrasts and especially sulfur / dirt, you will love this material, for me personally you will get a few points because the balance is not right for me
    • Nose
      87 87
      the sherry is immediately present, especially plums and plums, there are also a few orange notes, plus something very slightly musty from mushrooms and earth, accompanied by hazelnut and a dark sweetness that is reminiscent of Demara sugar, in the background there is even some smoke , which suggests a little sulfur, the oak provides a persuasive spice (cinnamon, a few cloves and a little woody rosemary, if you swirl the glass, the sulfur will appear a little more
    • Taste
      85 85
      great start, the alcohol is very well integrated, lots of dark leathery sherry notes, the sulfur and the muff is clearer than in the nose, dirtier it is best, the oak is represented here with a bitter part
    • Finish
      86 86
      medium length, a lot of dirty sherry, you can also guess a bit of peat, a lot of cocoa, this bitter baked cocoa without any sweetness

  19. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Nice, Sherry-heavy whisky with some smoke and herbs. A little too much sulfur for me personally, but I have only recently started to react a little more negatively.
    • Nose
      Immediately an unbelievable sweetness, almost syrup-like, gummy bear-like, vanilla, in the background some sulfur grumbles and a slightly medicinal note and a handful of currants.
    • Taste
      Nice start, herbs, licorice, noticeable but not overwhelming peat, sulfur (clearly), sherry and also a decent shovel of oak.
    • Finish
      quite long, quite typical of the almost obvious Orkney still, light peat, sherry notes, tobacco, oak.

  20. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Have been written some notes, so I hold myself briefly.

    The nose is actually really nice and makes you want to taste it. Works easy. Neat sherry paired with the moderate smoke. So far so good.
    In the mouth then first nice oily and sweet. Again shaped by sherry. But then comes a touch that reminds of a dry red wine. I feel that as something put on. Does not seem very homogeneous to me.

    In the nose a nice and pleasing malt. In the mouth he does not like me anymore. But most of it is up to me. Have had it from time to time with a few whiskys. Somehow react a bit sensitive with a few malts.

    If you want to know my opinion about the whisky, please scroll up again ....;)

    I think StyrianSpirit describes it quite well!

    I have:
    - sulfur
    - plum
    - Sherry
    - Muff / Modrigkeit
    - Match
    - a little sour cherry
    - gummi bears
    - but (point deduction) not much oak spicy / but you can not really ask for 12 years.

    Delicious part! (Price not included)

  22. Bona scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    A very tasty barrel.
    Especially the taste convinced. Fruity sherry, musty oak, dark fruits, orange, cocoa, hints of anise and rosemary. Very complex, but not on the sweet side, but the wood is too dirty and strong.
    The finish is a bit short and prevents me just under 90 points. Very light smoke can be felt here. In addition a beautiful sherry calibration suit.
    In the mouth a 90 P whisky. The alcohol is also well integrated and zero sharp. This Orkney can do something!

  24. Bam scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Beautiful balance of light sweetness, red fruits, and strong, dark herbal notes and oak.
    • Nose
      Starts sweetly with vanilla, caramel, marzipan, and white chocolate with plums and raisins. Then come fresh leather, and musty / damp wood. A hint of smoke mixes with a herbal note and oak flavor.
    • Taste
      Strong onset, oily mouthfeel. Red fruits, plums, raspberries and cranberries, together with caramel and white chocolate. Then peppery, spicy and herbal. The tongue starts to tingle and I have the association of red shower sticks.
    • Finish
      For a long time, still the red shower sticks. Spicy, slightly bitter oak, and the herbs.

  25. Totoro scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Good malt, but for my taste too much of the used sherry that dominates the overall picture at any time, and not always in a positive way.
    • Nose
      Without water clearly vinous and fruity, the barrel and its previous contents dominate noticeably. There are both sweet and sour aspects to be found - if you trace the latter, you finally get through to the HP-typical floral heath notes. The smoke, on the other hand, seems to be almost completely covered at first, then sometime emerges, disappears again, reappears, etc. ad infinitum.
      Identifiable flavors: currant, cherry, wine gum, vinegar, barbecue sauce, cold ashes, honey. Very sweet and slightly "flavored", especially at the beginning. It takes until the spicier Fassaromen come to light, superficial but they are at no time.
      It becomes more sour with water, and it remains so that the barrel dominates. No improvement in my eyes.
    • Taste
      Already very tasty and drinkable without water, if a bit short-lived. Juicy-sweet at the beginning, with an extremely welcome leather-and-licorice component in the middle, and gaaaanz delicate dark chocolate tones at the end. Diluted the smoke is a little better and a slight saltiness spreads. Overall, however, very strongly located on the sweet-sour side of the spectrum. I can not help feeling that I've had too much wet cask here, and that seasoning sherry is not necessarily my favored variety. It's a taste of its own that I have not had so far with other sherry caskets; blind, I probably would have typed on port.
    • Finish
      Light smoke, complemented by sweet and fruity sherry notes, which reminds me a lot of sweet-spicy, tomato and vinegar-based barbecue sauces. Not bad, but quite own and not really something that I would always like. Here is the previous barrel content again too prominent.

  26. Gloin scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    The smell invites immediately to the Probieten. But that would be a mistake, because the smell has many impressive flavors to offer.
    However, the whisky in the mouth reveals its true strength: a true palate chopper, which you want to refill immediately after emptying the glass
    The finish falls a little bit without tarnishing the overall impression.
    A great whisky, very ripe for the young age. The barrel is however quite dominant. But that does not diminish the enjoyment in any way.
    • Nose
      dark cherries, maraschino, slightly sour, very delicate but clearly recognizable smoke, vanilla, cocoa, slightly sweetish tobacco, plums, dates, dill, condimento all'Aceto balsamico
    • Taste
      medium body, rather soft onset, but then a slight tingle on the tongue, cherry, some gravy, raisins, cognac, sweet and sour, some oak, chamomile, sourdough bread
    • Finish
      a mixture of dark notes and sweetness, the fruit now recedes slightly behind oak, dark bread crust, dark chocolate, Seville orange marmalade, a reminder of the cherries

    great painting, challenging you discover new again and again
    he wants his time and he should get it !!
    you can "play" with water but it does not have to
    the alcohol is very well integrated
    • Nose
      minimal smoke, dark, slightly ham, prunes, fat, oak comes, sated sherry, light raisins, sweetness, herbs come
      with water: slightly cherries, a little more sweetness, leather, the ham becomes clearer, more herbs so green herbs
    • Taste
      oily and powerful on the palate
      slightly more smoke than in the nose, sherry, oil from the bicycle chain or the smell / mouthfeel in a car repair shop, spices (cinnamon?), (hazel) nut, cold medicine (this herbal note), raisins, oak, spicy, slightly bitter
      with water: bitter, the nut notes come through even stronger and a note that I would classify as rich dark beer, dark chocolate so 70%
    • Finish
      long
      very spicy, slightly black gum, oak
      with water: more oak, light licorice, espresso and again the dark chocolate

  29. StyrianSpirit scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    The single malt with the three faces. The nose is dominated by modrigem wine cellar, some champignon breeding and depending on the situation and day shape also vinous notes. You have to like it. On the palate, the Orkneyaner opens up all its spicy sherry and plum splendor. In the medium-long to long finish, he again changes direction "gummi sweetness" and herbal seasoning, without however (oaks) to become bitter. Overall, an 89-point pleasure (88-90-89) for me. From the large burgundy glass with 87 total points less convincing, with some water from the Premium Snifter, the barrel-strong malt from the Orkney Islands is even better with then 90 total points.
    • Nose
      88 88
      The first impression: We are in a slightly musty cellar, the aromas of wet barrels and rose wine in the nose. Air, the malt needs air. Let's open the doors and let oxygen in. Matchheads, ritsch, rassch. Some marjoram and rosemary, damp forest soil, a few hazelnuts. In further tests, as today, remains the moldy wine cellar keynote; However, there is some more fruit (ripe peach, plum) and some cinnamon along with a pleasant menthol freshness. The herbs are a bit more discreet, as well as the matchheads.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Very compact, very rebellious - and now the sherry is fully there. Welcome! Plum, some cinnamon with plum roaster. As with the TWE-Pulteney, the sherry and fruit flavors are very clear on the palate, despite the almost 58% of the Fassstark HP. And then also the fine herbs - "brighter" than in the nose -; ok, maybe something Erika. The matchheads flash (unlike in the nose) also only very briefly. Pleasant, dense sweetness.
    • Finish
      89 89
      The finish remains long and especially full of sherry and Zwetschkenkraft, coupled with pleasant spiciness; in the finish creeps, depending on the Tastingsituation, still some "Edradour-rubber sweetness" to it, or even a little bit of oak, without becoming bitter.

  32. LaphBeg scored this whisky 90 points Member Senior

    He gleams copper brown bronze in the premium sifter.
    In the nose it evokes associations of licorice and anise, roasted hazelnuts and dark fruits. Smoke? No trace of it for me. Maybe there is nothing there, maybe I'm too dull as a Laphi fetishist for the soft smoke.
    Wow, strong start. I'm a bit overwhelmed now. Hmm, Ritter Sport does almost everything, I think I have whisky-grape-nut-chocolate in the glass here. Forest honey. And there is a hint of smoke. Very subliminal. And the herbal tea is also there, after Ritter Sport rode off, comes the full herbal freight, which had been announced in the seasoning of the forest honey.
    From the alcohol you can only feel the tingling in the navel - er, on the tongue.
    In the finish a very tasty sweetness. Extremely dangerous. These are herbal sweets for adults. I'm inclined to shovel the whole pack.
    Rarely have I been at a dram for so long. Granted, meanwhile, the malt has got some water. Not that he needed it. But here I like to experiment. Now he releases some wood, I also recognize sweet cherry now.

    Thank you again to the team behind the scenes, that we can enjoy this great bottling.

    This malt definitely needs time and has to breathe! Yesterday briefly uncorked the bottle and immediately poured a Dram ... I must admit, I was a little disappointed. Today I gave the Orkney Single Malt at least 15 minutes time and he thanked me with his funny, if very idiosyncratic way. The muffige note after decayed wood elements, I find very borderline partly because this now and then in echoes of sulfur passes, which I do not find so tingling. Although this bottling is good drinkable without a water addition, I now give a little water. A tug is not necessary in my opinion, but tickles a few new flavors and we are a little milder. Time to breathe this filling in my opinion definitely, maybe even a little more air in the bottle ;-)
    An idiosyncratic, interesting and tasty filling which may not be convincing at first contact, but definitely deserves a second chance and then guaranteed to be convincing. In my opinion, this malt needs some time to breathe! I like it, a successful forum filling.

    22/22/22/23 (89P)

    Edit: The more air in the bottle, the more pleasing it becomes. A few drops of water, delicious!

    And yet I stay with it, Muff and Moder are present for me, if now more in the background. Tastes and tastes always better!
    • Nose
      Wonderfully bright copper with an orange red shimmer shines in the Premium Snifter, I watch the long and oily "legs" which adhere for an eternity to the glass wall. "This malt needs time and has to breathe" You hear some people say ... ok, we give in 15 minutes time. Mossy decayed wood elements rise up, wet leather and beguiling sweetness join in, while dark and opulent fruit flavor powerfully lifts from the glass. Dark plums and dried cherries mingle with raisins and prunes, while the freshness of menthol is in the background with Moroccan mint. The musty and decayed flavor is intensified, immediately try caramelized sugar and sweet fruit aroma to point the emerging sulfur back into its place, with success. Hints of sulfur can not be denied in my opinion, the previous breathing the Orkney single malt has done very well. The alcohol is very well integrated despite its high volume and shows only occasionally with its fresh and mentholischen kind. Dark plums and plums play with shadow morels and caramelized sugar, a hint of peat smoke comes on and is in the same moment again from a torrent muff and moder overcast.
      With minimal water addition: The nose opens after a minimal addition of water and is fresher and sweeter, surprisingly, the alcohol is in my opinion even more dominant to advantage. Menthol and peppermint play with sweet plums and dates, oranges come on, the caramelized sugar appears a little sweeter in appearance, the musty and decayed wood tones sound a little less and are no longer so dominant.
    • Taste
      Sweet with musty and decayed wood tones, the first sip flows over the tongue and heats up the palate immediately. Voluminous rotten wood tones through the palate, plump warmth dresses the entire mouth, dried berries and grapes end in candied fruits and caramelized sugar. Spicy and dark wood elements emerge, slightly smoky, a little peat sticks to the tongue, hints of scorched wood are immediately superimposed by sweet fruit flavors and emerging freshness. The second sip is characterized by sweet fruit flavors and (why should it be otherwise at the second sip?) And musty and decayed wood tones. Wet leather and a hint of sweet tobacco followed by smoky elements, the initial hint of smoke intensifies, as well as the burned wood tones. Again and again, sweet fruit flashes on and today I feel the high alcohol content as not so dominant, today I could do without an addition of water and later I still give a little water. Slowly the salivation begins, it is fun to deal with this malt.
      With minimal water addition: The malt looks sweeter and more pleasing, is definitely smoother with water. In the taste, the fresh peppermint and menthol notes are clearly highlighted and intensified by the addition of water. The leather still appears more dominant, the smoky echoes and charred wood elements are weakened. Do I now check dried tobacco and old walnuts?
    • Finish
      Dark, sweet and dried plums and cherries stick to the palate, raisins stick with slightly smoky hints on the tongue. Fresh mint and a touch of eucalyptus tingling through the palate, musty and decayed wood elements are dominant in the foreground. the aftertaste I perceive as medium long, while the plump warmth in connection with musty and decayed wood tones remains long and dominant in memory. With menthol freshness and a sticky sweet fruit note, the aftertaste gradually fades away.
      With minimal addition of water: The echo, which is relatively short for me, is shortened by a few drops of water, and I also discover more bitter wood elements and walnuts in the finish. The aftertaste will be slightly creamier and sweeter.

  35. Archer scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    With its 12 years brings the quality already a more than decent pounds on the scales. Varied nose, exciting palate, long finish - if then still fruit and spice would have been a little more intertwined and presented less standing side by side ...
    And if you then but the initial issue price keeps in mind, then there is nothing more to moan. ;-)

      Sweet, overripe plums, reminiscent of Choya umeshu (a Japanese plum wine). If I had the impression of having a scratched match in my nose during the first few drams from the freshly opened bottle, this aroma is completely missing after a few days' ventilation. Cherry water, fruit sweets, leather, fruity flavored pipe tobacco. Weathered forest soil, moist cardboard - in combination with the sweet notes of cherry and plum, this results in an exciting combination for the nose. Almond cream, vanilla. Mild herbs, a little rosemary. The sweet, overripe fruits stand out again and again.

      Creamy and mouth-filling, the very sweet plums and cherries from the nose directly on the tongue. Overripe blackberries and blackcurrants. Light smoke, fresh wood. Wet leaves, moist, musty forest soil. Leather, tobacco - very sherry-stressed. Zuckerrübensiup. A herbal mix that brings more and more bitter notes on the tongue over time - as a counterpoint to the sweetness of overripe, almost fermented fruit. Almonds, walnuts, heather honey. Spicy over time with pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon and cardamom. Menthol out the back.

      Medium to long, only slightly dry, a little musty, minimal smoke, still the plums and cherries from the nose and the palate. Cooling menthol.

  36. Oldie6.1 scored this whisky 90 points Newbie

    After at least 15 min.

    Nose:
    slightly musty oak, nutmeg, herbs with chocolate vanilla sauce on light cherries and oranges.
    It forms subtle peat smoke and a cocktail cherry comes up from time to time.
    The alcohol is very well integrated.
    He is - for me - difficult to sniff out; one-dimensional, then again with different flavors.

    Mouth:
    creamy oranges, velvety oak, cherries with a lot of vanilla.
    Then sparkling strong black pepper with an orange-herb crust
    to nibble.
    Salivation begins and he remains dangerously tasty, half-dry with oak,
    salty citrus and sweet herbs, long back.

    What the nose does not necessarily hold, then brings the taste out again!
    Much better in the mouth than in the nose; no Schnüffelwhisky.
    ... but it depends on the taste.

    He is great and worth his 5 out of 6 or 90 WB points anyway; a unique PGV!
