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.

Sorry to have missed the tasting this weekend but I had a stomach virus that made keeping down food (let alone whisky) difficult.

So I will post mine over the next couple of days.

Today will be young peat and middle aged peat (15-18).

So first up is Mccarthy's.

One of the best standard whiskies out there.

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:

3 NAS whiskies tonight.
After that, I will only have two groups left, the 9-12yo and the 21+yo.

First up

Talisker 175th

Talisker
-
Slight sherry, sea breeze, and some pepper. Faint whiff of peat rolls in. maybe a hint of apple peel.
salted cooked fruits. apples and a little orange. Some nuts and some soft peat hits late on the palate.
medium length finish on brine and apples. Some pepper shows up at the very end for a very nice finish.
An extremely complex Talisker. Not the wham bam 10 but still quite amazing.
