  1. WhiskeryTurnip scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    This was an absolute banger. It was youthful, but incredibly tasty. The youth came out with some spirited heat on the palate and a flavor profile that remained relatively simple. That said, the profile was loaded with delicious rich barley sugars and fruits which transitioned wonderfully toward notes of dusty archives and libraries. I loved the combination and thought this dram was well-balanced, even after a decade in a first fill Madeira barrique.

    Overall, this bold fruity dram was a wonderful welcome to Aisla Bay. I would be curious to try a dram with a bit less cask influence to get a better idea of the malt’s characteristics.
    • Nose

      Fruit, malt, and musty antiques. Fruity notes of strawberry, kiwi, and pomegranate opened up right away while notes of citrus zest, orange blossoms and barley sugars built over time. Gradually the fruity notes became richer with dried berries, pomegranate juice, and dusty, musty notes of old library shelves and antiques.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Medium-thick body with a nice viscosity and rich notes of dried fruits, barley sugars, and antique wood. Dried orange peel, apricots, and dates arrived on a heady wave of barley sugars. All sorts of sticky pastries came to mind with orange sticky buns and rolls full of dried berries and cherries. The mid palate was full of dried leather, book bindings, and archival cartons while barley sugars clung on through the end with a faint menthol.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Lingering dried berries and dusty library stacks.

    probably my 1st ailsa bay, but annandale was also built in 2007, .. well. from annadale i tried the druid, but it was heavily barrel-shaped, so i couldn’t recognize the character of the distillery.
    • Nose
      88 88
      wood nut and something orange. great, there are also spices on board and nutty. a touch of sulfur
    • Taste
      87 87
      also wood nut but also a lot of honey and oranges. really great part. spices ala kadamom and something oriental follow. surprisingly good.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The finish is also good, albeit a bit short, but everything stays the same as in the taste and does not become bitter. it fades out .............

  3. Don Cassi scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Intense nutty nose, associations of banana and toffifee, with apricots and minimally dusty.

    Intense in the mouth and in the finish, sweet and fruity-spicy after peaches and dried figs.
    Length: 4/10

    Beautiful, intense Lowlander that doesn't have to hide behind the usual suspects of Sherry CS bottlings.

    Probably an Ailsa Bay.

    Grade: 2+
