  1. Kovalyoff did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Serge Valentine (91):
    I know it's going to be tough after that stunning apéro, but in Campbeltown, they know that where there's a will there's a way.. Colour: very pale white wine. Nose: love these batches because you're really in front of the true well-aged distillate, with no woodfooleries in the way. And it's lovely, much closer to the G&M than I had thought, zesty and pure, a tad fermentary, a notch smoky (rather coal again), and just pristine. Lovely so far, while we know that it'll only improve in the bottle, even more so when opened. With water: raw sheep's wool, mashed potatoes, beach sand, fresh concrete. Mouth (neat): love it. Mezcal smoked and salted, baguette dough, porridge, engine oil, seawater, lime juice. A sword, really. With water: no, a razorblade! Wonderful gherkin brine, oysters and other whelks and clams. Finish: long, very pure, chalky and briny.

    Comments: what a fighter. A bit austere, not unlike a Shaolin warrior monk (what what what?) SGP:462 - 91 points.
    We're flying very high this time... Let's try an OB then.

    Yes, I like it, especially the undiluted finish is a blast.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Color: white wine
      Nose: Salty and slightly acidic. A typical maritime surgical nose with Prickles & Cole slaw
    • Taste
      89 89
      Very maritime with typical OP flavor. Salt water, seaweed, a few bright grapes, minerally and neatly sparkled on the tongue.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Oha without water the finish knocks you out of your mountain pines. Rounder, more harmonious with water, and therefore shorter.

    Exciting, special but not completely outstanding. And I say that even though I'm a fan of "mezcal whisky". Funny. Or maybe it was the wrong day. Full review (german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2020/10/07/eine-hand-voll-highlands/

    the ever new, albeit ever repeated wonder of discovering a new set of sensations making up a new quality dram.. pine & sea water, it s impossible to imagine them together.. but here they are, dancing in the glass

  5. Varrek scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior
