    New Highland Sustainability Distillery named after the peninsula of the same name in the Western Highlands, owned by IB Adelphi, opened in 2014. Technically not whiskey yet, as it contains spirit with less than 3 years of maturation.
    Good whiskey, robust, very tasty. It reminds me a little of the Finlaggan Cask Strength
    • Nose
      raisins, milk chocolate, mon chery, light mineral peat, zero alcohol. With water comes a fruity note, but always wrapped in chocolate, and a hint of powdered sugar.
    • Taste
      on the palate it tingles, great licorice, slightly tannic, chocolate, mon chery. With water, the alcohol is greatly dampened and the flavors are confirmed
    • Finish
      long, chocolate, licorice

    It's just spirit. With potential, but spirit.

      Initially a pleasant sherry nose, but after a few moments it breaks apart and leaves only grain and silo behind. The barrel flavors are not enough to cover the New Make. With water a little more mature and maritime.
    • Taste

      Sharp, too young. Somewhat sweet and Coastal Character is noticeable.
    • Finish
      80 80
      The best of it all. Goes fast but with a pleasant aroma combination. Unfortunately, it stuns the taste buds a little too much.

    Okay, yes, it's a "spirit", so not valuable with the same meter of a whisky, even a young one. Of course bold and strong, but less sharp than expected.
    With a few drops of water it starts displaying some kind of interesting texture, clearly enhanced by the sherry casks.
    Not ready yet, but for sure promising.

    ????: gold,
    ????: volatile, intense but also crisp, sherry, chocolate-dry, a bit salty and windy, even a pleasant atmosphere of strong sweet fresh wine,
    ????: sweet, slightly chocolatey, even smooth but also intense, slightly astringent, oily, a little surprise for a 2yo
    ????: warm, sweet-sherry, not so short,
    Very pleasant nose, tasty on the tongue, correct finish,
    Pretty cool Spirit!
    ????: 4/10

  9. Droel scored this whisky 100 points Newbie

    This spirit is so, so good already....
    Tasted much more mature than expected.
    Full off flavour, mouth warming with a beautiful color.
    This bottle was emptied so so quick....
