  1. Shane_IL scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    This blend really did what it was supposed to do, truly a fantastic quality blended, not only made from good component whiskies, but expertly blended, it really shows off some of the better aspects one finds in an older whisky.
    • Nose
      Rich wood. Prunes. Dates. Vanilla. Wine cake. Glace cherries. Hints of pears in wine sauce.
    • Taste
      Wood, bitter but not in an unpleasant way. Maple. Brown sugar. Red fruits. Dry tannins, kind of like Assam tea.
    • Finish
      ong, more of that good bitter wood, tea tannins. Stewed fruits. Pears in wine.

    A bit shy on the nose as it needs air but then more fruity, wonderful on the palate, well balanced and complex - fantastic!
    • Nose
      Sherry and wood notes, hints of leather, dark fruits, a bit dusty - needs air - after hints of honey, brown sugar, molasses
    • Taste
      Very oily, creamy, citrus fruits, cooked oranges, fried bananas, touch of wood, subtle sweetness - really good
    • Finish
      Long and warm, more zesty, more wood notes, but not drying

    From scotchwhisky: https://scotchwhisky.com/magazine/new-whiskies/12857/batch-83/

    NOSE
    Huge and deep. Richly complex, with mature notes of polished wood, plum, balsam, dried fruits and blackberry, a touch of myrrh, then cypress and tobacco. Some old leather and resins dripping from a pine tree. Very slow. There’s heavy marmalade, a little molasses and, in time, some bergamot. Water is a little too disruptive (on the nose at least).

    PALATE
    Coal smoke right at the start, then a big Fox’s Glacier Mint lift before the tannins begin to show their hand. Much drier than the nose, but equally mysterious with that nodule of sweetness becoming increasingly important. Water now allows the grip to loosen and a heavy chocolate sweetness to emerge alongside dark fruits.

    FINISH
    Long and lightly gripping. Hint of smoke.

    CONCLUSION
    The second release from Craigellachie’s Highlander Inn. ‘Oishii’ is Japanese for ‘delicious’, and this sure is. You’d be a fool not to try it.

    RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME
    High tea at Morgan le Fay’s.

    SCORE: 9.1/10
