Highland Park 17yo Ice
700ml 53.90%
  Ret
$570.00
   
Wow! Take a look at the bottle. That's what the marketers want to do to you these days. But I'm still more interested in the spirit inside. All Bourbon cask matured. From Whisky For Everyone, "On the palate it is the malted cereal and delicate peat smoke notes that hit first, and they are much more prominent than on the nose. The combination is reminscent of slightly burnt or caramelised oat biscuits. After this, the sweeter and fruitier notes begin to come through - think of vanilla and golden syrup especially, plus elements of tropical fruit".

Like the name as it so suggest sherry oak maturation. It's of a modern age as it a regular item for a no age statement.Eighty per cent sherry oak and 20% Bourbon, and all are first fill. So a more usual mix for HP unlike the 17yo Ice. From Scotch Addict, "Nice body, smoke on the front and then many of flavors associated with a sherry maturation like spices, walnuts, almond, and some orange peel."

 
Isle Of Jura Tastival 2016 Triple Sherry Finish
700ml 51.00%

POA
     
Think of Tastival as the the rival to Feis Isle. So what we have is a special release of a big sherry influenced as it matured in palomino fino, amoroso oloroso and Apostoles oloroso sherry casks. And the taste? From Connosr, "Mouth coating, round, rich. Oranges, zest included, sweet and sour on grapefruit, but also baked apples and butterscotch. Honey and raisins, some kiwi and pineapple. Tobacco. A small salty edge. Quite drying."

It's new...it's peaty...and it's good, the whisky is clean, bright and enticing. Not like the old days! Peat is definitely to the fore, and I like the description of the peat as being like smouldering old railway sleepers. It's a tad simple but I like it for its directness. The official tasting notes are as follows, "Nose: Rich Island character with tantalising hints of grass, malt, gingerbread, stewed fruit syrup and finely polished oak Palate: Smooth velvety, with fruity tangs and exquisitely spiced gingerbread and aniseed for a medium sweetness to treasure Finish Ginger and spicy oak matched with bitter chocolate and almond that gently fades with a tail of sweet salty seas."

Be still thy beating heart. Full on peat, full on sherry and an 18yo! How good is that? From the distillery, "The palate is powerfully rich bursting with sherried, herbal smoky flavours, orange peel, coffee, a touch of sea salt, tobacco and white pepper. And the finish is long and quite pungent with more smoke, as well as a hint of liquorice and sea spray."

Mmmmm..love that pungent scents of the sea, the big whiff of white pepper, the salty tang at the back and that classic mouthwatering finish. Love it! Buxton's 101.

Classic Talli brightness, attack, saltiness and that brilliant pepperiness just gets better with a super layer of very fine, high class creamy toffee flavours. Just brilliant.

 
Talisker 57" North

A no age cak strength version of the ever popular and always reliable 10yo. As you could imagine it's powerful, intensive, even biting with a big dose of smoke, ash, sea spray & citrus notes. The added alcohol adds a really nice touch of freshness to this remarkable malt.

Hazelburn 10yo
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$119.00
   
Brand new for Summer 2015. Still triple distilled, fully matured in ex boubon casks and according to blogger SWB (I've yet to try it), "Palate: Thick and mouth coating with gently sweet, fruity oils with a pinch of spices. The quality from the nose comes through clearly into the palate. Thereís a fudgey creamy quality and chocolate. Finish: Jam packed with gorgeous flavours, some of which are from the great quality bourbon wood. Itís really long and leaves flavours on your palate for yonks, as long as many a peated whisky. Thoughts: I was hugely impressed with this dram when I had it as the first dram of a big Islay tour, and it always stood out in my mind after the tour, which already marked it out as a potential gem."

 
Hazelburn 10yo Rundlets & Kilderkins
700ml 50.10%
  Ret
$148.00
   
Now I am led to believe that this is final R&K from Springbank. This time those small 60 and 80 lt casks are used with Springbank's triple distilled whisky, Hazelburn. In Springbank's words, "Nose: An infusion of chocolate, honeycomb and dried fruit combine well with a malty undertone, before a rich creaminess develops. Palate: Elegant yet complex with a combination of spices, sweeter candy notes, butterscotch, marzipan and sugared almonds. A rich oily texture is derived from its maturation in small casks, giving the impression of a maturity beyond its 10 years. Finish: Long, robust and medium dry. An earthy oakiness is infused with sweet salty notes which go on and on."

 
Hazelburn 12yo Sherry

$139.00
   
Springbank Distiller's latest triple distilled, ex sherry cask matured, unpeated single malt. And I have to say that this is one sensational malt! And I mean that in its truest sense: the nose is subtly expressive, plenty of old, dark furniture notes, hints of dried orange zest, pepper, cardamom with a hint of bitter marmalade. Very supple, very classy with all the senses fully engaged. So bring on the palate. Fabulous oak: plenty of dried fruits, bitter orange that sits well with subtle malt. Initially sweet then the pepper and crisp spirit arrives at the end leaving a very intriguing, but lasting finish. Typical Springbank: lots of angles & crisp intensity as well as being just huge on the palate. Magic stuff.

 
Hazelburn 2003 13yo Oloroso Sherry Wood
700ml 47.10%
  Ret
$159.00
   
Great review for this new release in 2017 from blogger Mark at Malt, "Velvety, if a little thin on the texture. Certainly not as oily as its sister brands, yet pleasant enough. Heavy on the charcoal, with blackened meats - and honey glaze. Indeed, an underlying meatiness here, drifting into gamey, grouse territory. Blackcurrants and elderberry or even Balsamic tartness to this, which actually works with that meatiness. Blackcurrant juice then begins to dominate. Rather creamy, with just enough bitterness from the wood to balance out. Ever-so-slight metallic tinge. Caramel notes, and eventually those dried fruits one would expect. Conclusions Opening day of the shooting season: gamey, smokey. Just a lovely whisky. Typical of some of the whiskies being released from Springbank of late, and that is something to be celebrated, as it's very much my cup of tea. I can have no shortage of this style of whisky in my cupboard."

 
Hazelburn 2007 9yo Barolo Cask Finish
700ml 57.90%
  Ret
$145.00
   
New for 2017 and possibly the last use of those famed Barolo casks at Springbank. For this release, Springbank have combined their unpeated triple distilled whisky, initially matured for 6 years in fresh bourbon oak with an additional 3 years in the French oak Barolo (red wine) casks. According to Springbank the taste is, "peppery with light tannins. The sweetness is continued alongside dried fruits, raisins and the subtle hint of coconut shavings. 10, 800 bottles released worldwide.

 
Kilkerran Work In Progress 2 Grey Label 6yo
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$91.00
   
The feints of the 1st edition have gone and now this malt is starting to blossom. The length and zestiness bordering on salty of this mat is amazing and do like the crisp maltiness mid palate. Can't wait for the next one! From the distillery, "Nose: Light and fragrant, the nose leads you into the dram gently. Refreshing lemon citrus, hints of pear and just a dash of sherbet. Palate: Masses of sweet vanilla immediately take over the taste buds before the classic Campbeltown salt hits the tongue. Creamy toffee and butterscotch become apparent as the natural oils coat the mouth. Finish: gentle smoke comes from deep in the throat followed up by very pleasant ground spices".

Here's the next stage in the evolution of a brand new malt. And it just gets better all the time. The feintiness of the last edition is gone, the oak influence is now getting richer and the malt quality seems to be fatting up. So guess what? Itís starting to show some maturity! Hereís my notes from a Dec 2011 Perth tasting: Nose: herbs, creamy American oak, vanilla, initially lots of alcohol lift with hints of kitchen spice, a touch of peat and sadly a hint of rubber (possible some feints still creeping through) Palate: Bright, lively and kitchen spicy. Long palate, vanilla cream oak, crisp maltiness, big dollop of mid palate sweetness. Finish: Long lasting oak creaminess. What do I reckon? Well worth the try! (pic indicative only)

 
Longrow 18yo
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$264.00
   
The long awaited third release of Springbank Distillerís current, oldest whisky. Once again, allocations are very small and it has totally sold out overseas. Overall, it's a remarkable whisky. Remarkable for its bright, almost luminescent colour (a very non-reactive American oak cask me thinks), remarkable for its very clean, lean, lemon citrus dominated nose. Shane reckons thereís a hint of earthiness (this will be the peat) in there as well plus a good dose of creamy American oak. On the palate, itís also remarkable for its initial feistiness but then the door opens up to let you into one seriously long, luxurious palate, where nothing is out of place. Malt, oak, alcohol and citrus fruit flavours are in complete harmony. I donít think Iíve seen a Longrow just so pure. In a word: zesty. In another: breathtaking. Whiskyfun rates it at 92pts with the comment, "extremely high quality. I canít see why Iíd come up with another score."

Brand new and what a beauty it is. Lean, clean and loaded up with peat. This whisky is intense and long with a hint of citrus fruits. As one pundit it put it, "A great entry-level offering from Longrow perfect for Islay fans looking for something a bit different." Bravo Longrow!
