  1. GrandMaltMasterFlash scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    My first note when I tried the sample:

    Orkney 1999 ex bourbon
    nose:
    fresh fruit of the orchard (Williams pears, wine apples), some strawberries, some blackberries, dry, white wine, dry grass, varnish / solvent, baked apricot / peach, minerality, smoke, dusty carpentry shop.
    -------
    Palate:
    dry white wine, citrus (lemon peel, orange), dried apricot, some cardamom and white pepper, mint ?, honey, unripe walnut, inside of a leather bag, tobacco.
    -------
    Finish:
    long, slightly peppery, a bit of tannins, a little citrus, tobacco, mint

    Mouthfeel is great, spreads wonderfully, pleasantly oily
    as for me a banger! Great whisky
    89-90 points easily

    Needs water to open up. Water also helps for a more waxy texture.
