    The whisky with russiness, at least for the time being, does not suit me to any situation. Good anyway. A bottle sometimes bought from Alko in Kuopio, enjoyed by Kivääritehtaankatu in autumn and winter 2016.
    • Nose
      Medication / Soap, Carbon and Ash. Persimmons.
    • Taste
      Versatile, delicious flavor. Salt and pepper, some peat. But in the background, however, a slightly softer raisin.
    • Finish
      Long, thin, hot aftertaste.

  6. jazzpianofingers did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    2015N: Savoury-sweet and peaty touches with a little toffee, honey and flint.
    T: Plenty here - a dram with a wide vista and some challenging edges for those who want something more than a sweet, ironed-flat, easy drinker - smooth it ain’t. Neat theres some heat but either way, theres a heathery/peaty maltiness into the finish.
    F: Woody, chocolate fresh and waxy mouthfeel with a well rounded, full bodied finish. This really opens out more and more.
    C: Still rather good if a little ungainly. A lower score than normal, I wonder how long this bottle had been open in the pub?

    Scores a C+
    2014

    N: Talisker or Highland Park? Tastes like a combo of bourbon and sherry casks - and super active ones too so probably Talisker has the edge. Lots of sherried fruits, raisin in particular with a mineral, oily, earthiness in the bows that lurks around on the finish.

    T: Rich, full, woody arrival. Chocolate and oaky sherry notes provide for a long and fruitful development which grows and grows….

    F: …..chocolate, mineral, cardboard earthiness.

    C: Fabulous standard expression, better than the HP12 in my book. Always makes me wish Bunnahabhain would follow Talisker’s cask management which provides a consistency in quality time and time again.

    Scores a B
    2011

    N: A dense mixture of woody, beefy, tomato [Bladnoch], soapy [saline], dried orange and sultana/raisins notes. The soapiness is initially pharmaceutical but opens up as floral with a musty wood [smoky] spice to add. Herbal, particularly sage, acetone, 'seaweed on the rocks' and fresh pineapples appear once opened up. Fresh herbal malt reveals itself with time. Fantastic nose rewards if given time. At the end of the bottle theres a sherry/gin note with oily phenols.

    T: Intense, mild honeyed, spicy, brine arrival but dry spicy maritime herbal notes dominate, on the fresh sour side, never too salty, never bitter. Chew it, let it linger. It feels a little underpowered/ flat in general.

    F: Sweeter malt peaks through again but overall this is a friendly fresh seafarer. Intense wood spice fizz immerses at the back of the palate at the end, like the 57 degrees. Sweet, saltish, vegetal bonfire smoke at the death with a bitter lemon zestiness.

    C: Excellent rugged, characterful, delicious, challenging everyday drinker. Great quality for a great price. Nose is a winner, let down by an slightly flat & dense [heavy] palate.

    Scores a B

  9. haubi scored this whisky 80 points Member Senior

    • Nose
      Heavy, subtle, maritime, moderate smoke. At first rather restrained, slightly sweet, he develops into a rather spicy, strong and expressive malt. Very aromatic, slightly salty, lavender and peppermint.
    • Taste
      Maritime, algae, malt, spicy-peppery (although I find the pepper not so pronounced and salient as it is often described in other tasting notes). Sweetie again in the end.
    • Finish
      Very long, shows very strong cheeks and palate, warming, slightly oily, ginger.
