Whisky reviews for A Highland Malt 2010 K23

  1. JNuyts scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Just poured and starts fairly sharp on the nose. You wouldn't immediately say that this is a sherry barrel… certainly not 1st fill. In the background very gently some cashew and almond nuts, a bit of red fruit but subdued.
    In terms of taste, the waxiness is immediately noticeable.
    A few sharp edges which clearly indicate that this is still a fairly young release. Overall a nice whisky.

    Bazooka

    Ha! I organized a Mobsters on Mopeds tasting this week and see what the postman brings along: Mobsters on Mopeds #11! A Highland malt of 10 years old whose origin remains secret. Well, so be it. Again a very nice label, this time with a Peugeot S157B, a scooter that was very popular in the 1960s, driven by a blonde cheerleader with a bazooka – always popular and I'm not talking about the bazooka. Ha! Let's taste it.

    The nose starts a bit sharp on all kinds of nuts and berries, yellow and red fruit and pepper. It’s is also a bit waxy. Cotton candy and candied apricots appear after some breathing. It also has something especially earthy as the worm-eaten bark of an oak tree. I confess: it needs some time, but if you grant that, you will certainly be rewarded. It develops very nicely in the glass.

    On the palate as well, the waxiness is the first thing I notice. Beautiful body. I now get the yellow and candied fruit at the front, a lot of spiciness from the sherry cask and then a hint of Tunisian fig jam. There is also something very yeasty in it, which even reminds me of a much younger malt. But it doesn't look out of place.

    It lingers for a long time and leaves your mouth completely warm. Spicy finish.

    A time bomb (or bazooka?). It all starts a bit slow and difficult, but time brings advice and in this case a very nice Highlander. Available at Buds & Barrels for 95 EUR. Bottle 65 of the 65 already found its way into the collection.
