Night Willie,

I've been trying to get Johan Brugge to invest in a bottle of the Yama Heavily Peated, hopefully if he reads this he will finally take the plunge.

Night Willie,

I've been trying to get Johan Brugge to invest in a bottle of the Yama Heavily Peated, hopefully if he reads this he will finally take the plunge.

I'll get there DT. Believe me, I will.
I know I'm a bit late but like I told DT I didn't fancy a whisky last night. Here's a note from my latest Islay whisky. It's a Laphroaig 12yo straight from the cask (nr. 7002). I'll try to post the alcohol % later.

Nose:

It's a typical Laphroaig. Immediately I can smell the high alcohol %, but it's not overwhelming. I pick up scents of bonfire, BBQ, saltiness, iodine. Actually it reminds me of Laphroaig 30 or a Talisker 25. I can sniff this for hours. With some water it's even better. Now it reminds me of the Oogie. Can't be bad!

Palate:

Lots of peat, smoke, brine, seaweed. Some oak as well. It's not oily but very silky, sweet and smooth. This is a very good balanced whisky. Not as powerfull as the nose let me to believe. It's more subtle. With water is the same as on the nose. It's rich and full. It's like a QC but then + 7% vol. but with less wood influences.

Finish:

All the different flavours from the palate return. The saltiness sticks to my lips. The more sips I take the more I like it. I believe it's much better than the 18 I've tried last year.

Evening Johan and Nick

I think I'll try a lighter peating level tonight.

Clydesdale Highland Park 11.92 - 09.06, 61.5% Sherry Cask

Nose: The characteristic honey is there, but the strength makes it a little spirity on the nose. Heather and a little mossiness coming through now. Smoke and tannins, like someone is burning tea-leaves. Slightly butyric.
Palate: Nice fruity delivery, although the dram seems quite closed. I think maybe this one merits a spot of water. Ah that's better. A couple of drops has cracked it. Now its fairly fizzing away with orange sherbet (its brought an orangeyness to the nose as well).
Finish: Brilliant with the water. Wave upon wave of flavour from little tarry spikes, through floral notes and into bursting juicy citrus.
Comment: I don't often say this but this one needs water. Once it has it the dram opens up and delivers some 1st rate sensations. Very nice stuff.

So much for the lower peating level. You've put me in the mood for something more intense.

MWBH Caol Ila 10yo 66.9%

Nose: Really strong. I can't put my nose into the neck of the glass or I just get spirit. Standing back a bit there's a classic Caol Ila aroma in the air. Calomine, lint, sticking plasters, I could be in an old fashioned hospital (one that got cleaned I mean). Loads of vanilla and salty sea shells from the beach as well. Really nice.
Palate: Salt, vanilla, salt, sugar, salt, vanilla, salt, .... I can't believe it! Two in a row that need water. Suddenly its bursting with juice like a bitten lemon segment, but sweet. Still incredibly strong even with a couple of drops of water. More water softens it and brings the sweetness to the fore and makes it smell like lemonade.
Finish: At full strength it just numbs the senses, but brought down a bit it has a long, chewy and quite delicious fruit sweet thing going on.
Comment: A monster that needs taming, but reduced this is a charming dram that would be easy to drink all night.

Cadenhead's Caol Ila 13yo, 1995 - March 2009, 60.4%, Sherry butt.

Nose: Like a christmas cake doused in Cointreau, dusted with peat and set on fire. Simply wonderful
Palate: Plenty of peat, like chewing a small chunk, then the marmalade coats it with sweet orange and lemon before it bursts into flame once again.
Finish: The maritime character emerges here, with dried sea salt and shell-fish and it goes on and on.
Comment: I got a pair of these from Cadenhead's and this is the last of the first bottle. It's pretty rare to see Caol Ila in a sherry cask and one of this quality is rare indeed. I wish I had bought more. Yum Yum.

Tomintoul Peaty Tang 40%

Nose: Very malty. Barley, draff and porridge all wrapped in a delicate smoke.
Palate: Nothing delicate about this. There's a burst of malt and lemon followed by a thump of peat. Coal tar and lemon fizz; a surprisingly pleasant combo.
Finish: Long sugary fizz. Very nice.
Comment: What a revelation. Tomintoul 10yo is a very tame dram and the peated variant called Ballantruan has singularly failed to impress me in the past, but this stuff is lovely. And cheap! I must get in a wee stock of this.

Golden Cask Caol Ila 82-09 54.4% cask #cm149

Nose: Mmmm, old Caol Ila. Honey, vanilla, dry carbolic, iodine and an underlying maltiness. Gentle and inviting.
Palate: Lovely texture that spreads across the tongue like a slow motion exploding peat fireball. The sweetness, malt, vanilla and salt are all there but its the sensation that captivates.
Finish: The explosion rolls on leaving little sugary sparklers on the tongue. Mmmm old Caol Ila.
Comment: This distillery can do no wrong in my experience and this is typical of the stuff from this era. The big peat has mellowed into a really gentle thing that delights the palate.

Willie, I think you've summed up my experience with Tomintoul as far as the peat thing goes.

I'd love to send out my compliments to everyone on bringing in a very diverse set of peated whiskies. Thank you all.

Nice notes everyone on such a wide range of peated whiskies! I have been battling an awful cold and I can't taste or smell anything right now. As soon as it's gone away I have some goodies to taste myself.

I hope you enjoyed the SMWS samples Ganga, nice notes! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I'm afraid you might have to get used to it. I've been sick more in my daughter's first year than the previous 5 years combined. It's likely to be a tough few more years before the trend turns.

You know, Sean...that's a good point about the PE seeming younger than it is. Very good, though. I need to pull the PE 6 and 7 back out to compare to the PE 9 sample I got from whiskysamples.

Nice notes!

Jeff

Oh...I don't know that I would call the Laph 30 finish "weak." I supposed compared to the Laga 21. I've finally got another bottle on the way to stock away for a special occassion (thanks to bcrossan).

You're right about this being obviously young, but if you're going to go young, a peaty whisky is the way to do it.

Very valid points for rating it down, but I seem to like it a bit more than you, pretty much splitting the difference between your score and the raves that Jim Murray gives it. I thought the peat actually held up pretty well into the finish.

Thanks for keeping this thread going with all of your notes. I was busy the weekend of the 6th, but maybe I could add some notes here, too.

Great notes on this one, Sean. I LOVE that earthy/mossy peat and wood combination. It plays right into my preferences.

Thank you very much for the generous sample of this.

Very nice mix of peat with some hot peppers, then a hint of mango.
Whoa! A huge blast of pepper then something sweet that I can't quite put my finger one. With a few drops of water it calms down the pepper a bit and becomes a bit sweeter.
Long finish, more peppers, with some salt towards the very end.
This is indeed a very powerful Talisker. Starts hot and gets hotter!

Time to mix it up a bit with a couple of young PE's.

Scottish Wildlife Port Ellen 10yo

Port Ellen
Scottish Wildlife (Signatory) PE 10yo
Hmm, interesting nose. Very typical, but a tad light for a PE, really showing it's youth here. There is hints of peat, but again very youthful and light.
Overall a bit thin on the palate, but the peat is more evident than the nose hinted to. More iodine than most PE's I've had.
Short to medium finish, again it's all a bit thin and very much showing it's youth with some sweet peat.
This one did get better the more and more I had of it, but definitely different from most PE's I have had. Of course I had never tasted one this young either. I would have guessed a young CI for sure here.

Engine smoke and iodine, with some sweetness in the background.
Starts light then becomes oily / peaty with more iodine.
Short finish and definitely showing its youth. Nice and smokey towards the very end, but overall light.
It was interesting to try these 2 young bottlings, I can definitely say that young PE reminds me of Caol Ila for sure!

Next up, a couple of Ardbegs!

Hmmm, much sweeter and more balance than the sister cask. More vanilla with some honey, hints of peat.
Wow very full of flavors, overall sweetness and this coats the palate very well. Hints of fisherman's friends towards the middle and a bit of peats towards the very end.
Long and tasty, some spices and more sweetness, just wonderful!
I can't get over how different this is from Cask 1189. Both are very good in their own respects, but extremely different.

The nose is very deep, loads going on here. Lots of wood smoke, wet tarry ropes, something sweet like coffee and just overall greatness!
Whoa, tons of peat smoke, and lots of complexity. It just changes throughout with lots of sweet vanilla notes and peat, peat, peat.
Really long finish with toffee mixed with huge peat. The smoke lasts forever!
Excellent bottling, I'd love to see Ardbeg experiment with more like this!
