- 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.
Color: white wine
Nose: Salty and slightly acidic. A typical maritime surgical nose with Prickles & Cole slaw
Very maritime with typical OP flavor. Salt water, seaweed, a few bright grapes, minerally and neatly sparkled on the tongue.
Oha without water the finish knocks you out of your mountain pines. Rounder, more harmonious with water, and therefore shorter.
- fine young whisky with good balance and nicely integrated alcohol
- A different Pulteney ?
Cracked black pepper, sweet orange sherbet, vanilla essence
Malty, milk chocolate, and raisins.
Brine, hoppy, red or blood oranges.
