  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A very naked Pulteney where the cask has done nothing but take the edges off. Right in serges wheelhouse.

    Cinnamon sugar toast. Crisp and clean white wine, zest, sea air and salt. A bit rough still. A bit thinner and prickly on the palate. Good clean distillate, but could use a few more years IMO.

    I love Serge like everyone else, but my tastes don’t always align with his; such is the case with this immature youngster.

    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.

    Surprisingly, at 55.4% ABV, the aromatics are better revealed from Blender's Glass and do not jam the receptors. Let it stand for 15-20 minutes will be beneficial. And take your time ...
    Mineral and malty aroma, very clear and clean.
    Mineral flavor (salt), malt, hot pepper and lemon zest.
    The aftertaste is long-lasting, salty.

    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/

  6. etwa77 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    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

    Salty, malty, with lemon peel and long finish.
