Whisky reviews for Unnamed Orkney 2006 SV

9 users have left 9 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 85.36 points.

  1. MrRancho scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Toffee, grass, red apples, mountain herbs on the nose. The taste is noticeably drier, spicy-woody, salty - yammi!

  2. diamond2000 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Aroma: slightly harsh, honey, dry herbs, milk caramel, dried fruits - raisins, dried apricots; a pleasant, lightest haze of HP, a little bit of minerals, tree bark.

    Taste: sharp spices, hot red pepper, cinnamon, milk caramel, distinctly mineral, dark raisins, delicate woods, grilled vegetables.

    Finish: dark berry peel, raisins, prunes, dark chocolate, burnt wood, dried herbs, metallic acidity, medium length.

    Score: 87

    Bottom line: a charming HP, a sherry cask slightly embellishes an excellent signature base. It seemed a little younger than the stated age, but all the components are correctly combined and this is good luck!

  5. craide scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Pleasant fresh and slightly fruity malt. Citrus, mint, vanilla and malt determine the overall picture for me with a very subtle smoke in the finish.

  6. WiltChamberlain scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Unpleasant. For me, despite the price, no recommendation.

  7. sarthur71 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A strange malt, a strange barrel, strange mushrooms in it...
    • Nose
      85 85
      sweetness, light bitterness, mustiness of a dusty basement, bookshelf, rotting foliage; rather bland and unexpectedly pleasant.
    • Taste
      85 85
      there is a sherry barrel, but so strange that thoughts of an old rotten stump overgrown with mushrooms appear.
    • Finish
      83 83
      short and rather dull, sweet, but with bitterness and again rotting wood and mushrooms.

  8. KonstUA scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Nose 21.5, taste 20.5, finish 21, balance 21

    21 20 20 21 82

    good for a drink, but 15 years are not here and there, modern history, and the acidity of the barrels is also modern, it interferes a little, IMHO ...
