Whisky Reviews for Pillaged 10-year-old

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.22 points

  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    You could give it 90, like some here, but personally I just lack the love for young, light islays (need at least a nice refill sherry influence), and I am also missing something in the nose for the 9 before it. Otherwise awesome stuff for 10y.
    • Nose
      A bit shy, the most exciting thing is how the smoke changes in intensity, from a very subtle background, as you have it with non-peated Tennessee whiskeys made from Charred American Oak, to medium-strength Islay blend, fresh nougat chunks, apricot, resin, banana chips, whiff Capers, lightly burnt brown sugar, cinnamon, marzipan, pine nuts, basil
    • Taste
      Burnt toast, capers, nutmeg, black pepper, more rustic than on the nose, but the sweetness comes through, brown sugar, cinnamon, apricot, pine nuts, pesto, resin, subtle salt, crispy oak
    • Finish
      Nutmeg, walnut, resin, toffee, cinnamon, oak, grass, medium length

    Colour:

    Full gold
    Nose:

    Slightly acidic (sauerkraut?!?) And really spicy until stop. Red fruits, rose hips, iodine, peat, dark clouds of smoke with wet coal and aggressive citrus aromas.
    Taste:

    Spicy and sweet with tart herbs, some wood and tons of peat. Salty, peppery and spicy - red peppers, chili, china grass, oranges, honey and emerging notes of sage, as well as more intense oak.
    Finish:

    Pretty long - fresh and dry. The wood notes are getting drier and smokier. Chocolate, leather, espresso with nicely integrated vanilla and well adapted phenols.
    Comment:

    The sour note in the nose is only at the beginning - after prolonged breathing this flies!
