Whisky Reviews for Oishii Wisukii 36-year-old HI
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.06 points
- Great fruity blend but the astringency of the tannins from the wood are clearly noticeable, fruity, toffee and tobacco
- Superb blend. Maybe a little too long in the barrel, but still very melted and balanced.
Very soft and melted nose. A classic of old speysiders.
Plum, apple crumble, currant, dates, figs.
Honey, very light flower. Brown sugar. Maple syrup.
A nice dose of slightly astringent wood.
In the mouth it is just as sweet and melted.
We smell a lot more sherry.
A nice dose of wood, leather, wax.
Dates, figs, cherry, plum. Grapes from Corinth. Dried apricot. Honey.
Old dusty tannery.
Very woody finish on wood, chocolate, liquorice, black pepper. Apple sauce, honey.
A hint of barbecue and smoke.
- It's really good.
The nose is super melted, very classic but without stiffness. It smells like an old Speyside, but weathered.
The mouth is fluid, and again everything is melted around dried fruit (figs, apricots) and wood. It goes down on its own.
The finish is hopelessly short ...
- 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.
Rich wood. Prunes. Dates. Vanilla. Wine cake. Glace cherries. Hints of pears in wine sauce.
Wood, bitter but not in an unpleasant way. Maple. Brown sugar. Red fruits. Dry tannins, kind of like Assam tea.
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!
Sherry and wood notes, hints of leather, dark fruits, a bit dusty - needs air - after hints of honey, brown sugar, molasses
Very oily, creamy, citrus fruits, cooked oranges, fried bananas, touch of wood, subtle sweetness - really good
Long and warm, more zesty, more wood notes, but not drying
- From scotchwhisky: https://scotchwhisky.com/magazine/new-whiskies/12857/batch-83/
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).
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.
Long and lightly gripping. Hint of smoke.
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.
