Mystery, Unidentified, Undisclosed & blind tasted

   

Why the mystery?

On this page I will address a few drams which I cannot identify by distillery, whether because of labelling which doesn't clearly identify them, or perhaps they are bottlings from undisclosed distilleries, or even in some cases because they were given to me blind and I am awaiting to hear how good my analysis and guesswork were.

Also included here are a few which may be named, but just don't fit on other pages.

 

 

 

Adelphi

   
   

Adelphi, "Breath of Islay", 12y, 1999-2001 56.1%

Cask No.5877, one of 329 bottles

Typical cost of this bottle: €€€€€

Reviewed as part of MMA 2011

 
 

Glass: Classic Malt

Colour: Gentle amber

Nose: Aged oak infused with Atlantic freshness as woody sea-air is combined with a peaty beach bonfire. Some slight rubberiness hints at a sherry influence.

Palate:  More peat presence here than on the nose, plus more Atlantic sea-air. Then come dark fruits including plums, raisins, currants and cherries followed by a damp woodiness, reminiscent of submerged pier supports.

Finish. Long and rich with some peat too.

Overall impression: Excellent. A wonderful example of Islay at its near best.

Typical cost of this bottle: €€€€€

Reviewed as part of MMA 2011

 
 

Glass: Classic Malt

Colour: Water? Almost

Nose: Peaty, fruity, rubbery. Yes definite peat with light rubberiness and background fruit. With time it just expands as more of the same.

Palate:  Slightly thin, but lots of what the nose promised.

Finish. Medium to long

Glass: Classic Malt

Colour: Light bronze - rich gold

Nose: Oaky malt with a gentle and slow developing light smokiness. Raisins and lightly smoked cheese develop with further time.

Palate:  Creamy furniture polish, sweet redcurrant and gradually developing smokiness, but more wood than peat smoke.

Finish. Long

Blackadder, "Smoking Islay", bottled 06.2012, 62%

Cask Ref. BA2012/436, bottle No.281 of 287

Typical cost of this bottle: €€€€€ to €€€€€

Reviewed blind as part of MMA 2012

 
 

Glass: Classic Malt

Colour: Chablis white wine

Nose: Initially intensely tingly on the nose thanks to the high abv. Then comes a sweet light earthiness which is almost rubbery - but not quite. Am I reminded of an Atlantic fishing harbour? In a way yes as this is quite maritime, but not fishy.

Palate:  A very pleasant mix of peatiness and maritime-ness, fishing harbour indeed. V
ery nicely warming too.

Finish. Long and warming.

Overall impression: Mmmm liquid comfort food with peaty overtones. Does it need a little water? Maybe next time.

 

   
 

 

Blackadder, "Smoking Islay", bottled 07.2012, 55%

Cask Ref. BA2012/438, bottle No.132 of 240

Typical cost of this bottle: €€€€€

Reviewed blind as part of MMA 2012

 
 

Glass: Classic Malt

Colour: Extremely pale, almost water-like

Nose: Light fishy smokiness alongside distinct peatiness. Over some minutes in the glass a light rubberiness takes over from the fishiness.

Palate:  Yes, a light rubberiness here alongside a fruitiness reminiscent of peach and galia melon. Nice.

Finish. Long with that peachy peatiness.

Overall impression: Very nice fruity peatiness. Light but yet solid.

 

   

 

 

 

Blackadder, "Peat Reek", 13y, bottled 06.2012, 61.5%

Cask Ref. 2012/1, bottle No.244 of 268

Typical cost of this bottle: €€€€€

Reviewed blind as part of MMA 2012

 
 

Glass: Classic Malt

Colour: Very pale yellow

Nose: Fresh antiseptic peatiness. The peatiness is really quite light and after a few minutes in the glass it develops a fresh woodiness. I love that antiseptic quality which reminds me of a (UK) skin product called Germolene. After more time is that a light fruitiness coming to the fore? Aye, very nice.

Palate:  Much bigger and more intense than the nose with a massive fruity tingle on the front of the palate and a solid earthiness at the back. This is possibly more earthy than peaty, but I really like it.

Finish. Long and intense.

Overall impression: A gentle and quite sophisticated nose just explodes onto the palate. Surprisingly big and intense. Very nice indeed.

 

   

 

   

Blackadder, "A drop of the Irish", NAS, bottled Feb. 2011, 46%

Cask Ref. 343, bottle No.21 of 314

Typical cost of this bottle: €€€€€

Reviewed as part of MMA 2011

 
 

Glass: Classic Malt

Colour: Extremely pale

Nose: Fruit, big fruit with lime and clementine, including the zest. Eventually a creamy leafiness attempts to come through, but the clementine holds it back.

Palate:  An initially creamy mouth-feel holds lots of that clementine, but the leafiness now does manage to appear alongside some lime and faint coconut.

Finish. Long. citrus, repeating

Overall impression: Nice, a pleasant surprise.

 

   

 

   

Blackadder, "A drop of the Irish", 14y, 31.10.1996 - Feb. 2011, 58.2%

Typical cost of this bottle: €€€€€ to €€€€€

Glass: Classic Malt

Colour: Hay left in the sun

Nose: Lightly floral with hints of coconut at the beginning. This expands wit htime into very floral coconut with hints of butterscotch.

Palate:  Initially quite imposing, very floral, almost perfumed, coconut macaroon. Then come hints of cranberry and a lightly toasted character towards the end.

Finish. Long and slightly toasted

Overall impression: Excellent, I really like this one.

 

   

 

 

Duncan Taylor

   
 

 

Duncan Taylor, "Auld Reekie", 10y, 46%

Typical cost of this bottle: €€€€€

 
 

Glass: Classic Malt

Colour: Pale yellow gold

Nose: There's an immediate lightly fruity rubberiness with accompanying vanilla. Then come some citrus (lemon zest) hints followed again by a suggestion of a beach bonfire with smoky Atlantic driftwood.

Palate:  Nice and gentle but still suggesting coastal Islay. It also has a creamy mouth-feel whilst remaining quite gentle or subdued. There's a fruitiness which reminds me of pear, green apple and water melon, perhaps as a fruit cocktail enjoyed on an Islay beach next to a peat bog.

Finish. Long and gentle.

Overall impression: I do like this fruity, peaty gentleness. Awfully civilised.

 

   

 

 

 

Duncan Taylor, "Big Smoke 60", 60%

Typical cost of this bottle: €€€€€

 
 

Glass: Classic Malt

Colour: Very pale yellow gold

Nose: Fruity outdoor swimming pool. Ahh yes, lots of fruitiness reminiscent of redcurrants, raspberry and maybe even a hint of strawberry, certainly red fruit. Red apple skin too maybe? It's also very fresh and light, hence my outdoor swimming pool comment. There's also a musty or dusty oakiness which, with time in the glass begins to develop a peaty smokiness which expands further as the fruitiness fades.

Palate:  Quite 'big' indeed on the palate with a really quite intensely fruity peatiness. The fruitiness is now more like peach, kiwi, kumquat and galia melon, a very nice cocktail with gentile sophistication. Although this is 60% abv I just didn't wish to add water, it's just fine as it comes.

Finish. Long and mildly fruity with that smokiness.

Overall impression: A true gentle giant. Very nice.

Live Dram-atics review

 
 

Glass: Classic Malt

Colour: Rich and luscious dark teak

Nose: Initially filled with raisins, plums, currants and prunes (heavy on the prunes), all marinated in a rich cherry sauce. Amongst all these, something really quite aromatic but much lighter along the lines of very floral almond tries to come through too.

Palate: 
Very rich and lightly toasted in flavour with those suggestions of prunes, raisins and cherries, but it has a surprisingly sligthly watery mouth-feel.

Finish. Long, creamy and rich

Overall impression:
A very rich sherry cask whisky, but it's just slightly let down by that wateriness on the palate, although it's still very good.

 

   

 

 

Sheep Dip

   
   

"Sheep Dip 1990", 40%

A vatting or blend of Ardbeg, Dalmore & Fettercairn

Typical cost of this bottle: €€€€€

 
 

Glass: Classic Malt

Colour: Oak with a coppery bronze hue

Nose: Initially an interesting cocktail of fruit, malt and light smoke. As this settles with some minutes in the glass the fruity smoke increases and includes more earthiness (peat) and some light rubber notes. Imagine red berries and bramble served on a rubber plate with a light peat sauce.

Palate:  Slightly peppery fruit on the front of the palate with a dry, faint smokiness on the back. Unliek the red berries of the nose, the palate offers mostly peach and apricot with a suggestion of mango.

Finish. Very long, fruity, dry and slightly smoky.

Overall impression: A very interesting nose with an equally interesting, if not quite so good, palate.

TWE, "Port Askaig Harbour", 19y, 45.8%

Typical cost of this bottle: €€€€€

Dram-atics live review

 
 

Glass: Classic Malt

Colour: Pale yellow

Nose: The nose initially oozes with Atlantic freshness, sea-salt and a hint of gentle smoke which soon expands to a full-blown peat bog, but given more time (4-5 minutes) I'm astonished as a vivid fruitiness including red berries, redcurrants and pears rise from those peaty embers.

Palate: 
The fruit leads, followed by the peat which expands further over the palate with time.

With 4 drops of water the nose is a little subdued, more aromatic as opposed to full-on peat bog. The palate is smoother with lingering peat alongside raspberry.

A further 4 drops of water increase the fruit again, although it is now somewhat weaker in overall intensity. The palate is now reminiscent of gentle bonfire embers on an Atlantic beach. I love the fruitiness of this whisky, especially alongside the obvious peat and Atlantic freshness.

Finish. Long, very long, with fruit and peat, albeit slightly dry.

Overall impression:
This Port Askaig Harbour is truly magnificent. Today has been very much about fruit and complex but subtle flavours. This Port Askaig has all the peat of a traditional Islay heavyweight, whilst at the same time offering surprising amounts of fruit. Those rebcurrants and red berries are fantastic alongside a healthy dose of peat and Atlantic freshness. But can I classify this whisky as one of my 'Greats' by awarding a 90 point score? Yes!

Colour: Rich gold

Nose: Aged wood, perhaps Atlantic jetty thanks to a maritime character. Then blackcurrants and cherries served in an aged oak cask with light vanilla sauce. An underlying (wood) smokiness.

Palate:  Vanilla ice cream, apricot, blackberry and a degree of smokiness.

Finish. Medium, expanding to long.

Typical cost of this bottle: Unknown

 
 

Glass: Classic Malt

Colour: Pale yellow gold

Nose: Malt and oats alongside perfumed wood, then light butterscotch with hints of popcorn and a suggestion of slightly bitter fruit.

Palate:  Silky smooth mouth-feel and initially uite fruity with peach and ripe pear. This is followed by malty butterscotch and some ginger notes. There's also some of that perfumed wood from the nose which now reminds me of sandalwood.

Finish. Long and aromatically fruity with hints of freshly cut wood.

Overall impression: A quite unusual but very good vatted malt. I love it!

 

   

 

 

The Clansman

   
   

The Clansman, 'Keith' 40% ABV

Label states; "A single malt Scotch whisky"

You know the kind of thing, available with most common names and bought from numerous gift shops across Scotland. In this case, a gift from a relative after such a trip to Scotland. I expect not 'Glen Keith' distillery.

 
 

Nose: Initially very malty, but this soon made way for leather

Palate:  Smooth and very gentle with a suggestion of what in Germany is known as vanilla pudding. In England we would say 'Angel Delight'. The finish is quite long even though the flavours are light. The aftertaste is slightly bitter.

With 3 drops of water: Sorry, almost ruined with not much left at all, but the finish is longer.

Overall impression: A light and inoffensive dram, but if I'm honest, also with not much to offer.

Dotty Scottie

Oliver Klimek's blind competition of Scotch Whisky, 2012

   
 

 

 
 

Along with a few other rather optimistic volunteers I agreed to take part in Oliver Klimek's blind tasting competition and try to guess the attributes of five whiskies only identifiable by coloured dots. The only information we were given was that they were all single malts from Scotland, OB with age statements or year of distillation. Our task was to guess distillery, expression, age and abv for each.

 
 

 

Green Dot; Caol Ila Unpeated, 12y, 57.6% ABV

2010 Edition

 
 

First tasting

Nose; Woody vanilla and slightly bitter fruit – star fruit. Also apple and a slight grassiness. Very aromatically so.

Palate; Very fruity with some light pepperiness.

Finish; Long & tingly.

Second tasting

Nose; Very fruity, slightly bitter. I stick with apple, star fruit, pear and maybe a hint of peach.

Palate; Fruit, light grassiness, rich and smooth.

Finish; Long, very long, fruity, creamy & silky.

Thinking out loud; Initially I suggested this could be any from Balblair, An Cnoc, Cragganmore, Glen Garioch, Scapa, Strathisla, Tullibardine or even HP.

On this second tasting I’m really going out on a limb here as I concentrate on the fruitiness which really is typical of Balblair.

 

   
 

 

Yellow Dot; Loch Lomond, 1966-2011, 40% ABV

Distilled in the distillery's first year of operation.

 
 

First tasting

Nose; Creamy fruit, malt, popcorn, floral wood, very slightly leafy.

Palate; Creamy fruit & vanilla, lots of vanilla.

Finish; Long with vanilla. Did I mention vanilla?

Second tasting

Nose; Lots of light flora, vanilla and wood. Even just a smattering of light furniture polish. Drying paint and furniture polish intensifies with time.

Palate; Fruit – banana stem but light or faint. Pear? Peach? Slightly watery?

Finish; Long,  fruity watery.

Thinking out loud; Initially I suggested this could be from Scapa, Scapa or Scapa. But there must be other possibilities? Give me a little time……No, I’m coming away from Scapa, don’t know why, but I am. Slightly watery? 40%. Bloody ‘ell, I’m sure I’ve had this before, or something very similar, but what the hell is it? Strathisla? Jura, maybe, but not quite methinks…..

Nah, soddit, I have to stick with Scapa.

 

   
 

 

Blue Dot; Benrinnes, 23y, 58.8% ABV

Bottled for Friends of Classic Malts

 
 

First tasting

Nose; Fresh wood, currants, raisins. Touches of leather. My good old English country house study or library. Very rich, also quite fresh.

Palate; Creamy smooth dark fruits, coffee and chocolate.

Finish; Smooth and creamy, some light pepperiness. Some floral elements very late.

Second tasting

Nose; Lots of dark fruits and sherried attributes. Light leatheriness, a little musty?

Palate; Creamy, lightly peppery, slightly sweet.. Honey, peppery, spicy, chocolate, coffee.

Finish; Very long & smooth spices.

Thinking out loud; Initially I suggested this could be any of the standard sherried suspects; Glenfarclas, Macduff, Glendronach, Aberlour or Dalmore.

On this second tasting I’m really going out on a limb here as I think the abv is quite high and just doesn’t fit any of my first thoughts, unless an A’Bunadh or similar…… So, I’m saying: Springbank Rundlets & Kinderkins

 

   
 

 

Red Dot; Glenfarclas, 1993, 46% ABV

Premium edition, Oloroso sherry casks

 
 

First tasting

Nose; Very creamy and lightly perfumed, vanilla and peach ice cream. Develops hints of light woodiness over time in glass.

Palate; Very smooth, very creamy, vanilla and peach.

Finish; Medium to long. Slightly dry & fruity. Actually it really is quite long.

Second tasting

Nose; Creamy fruitiness, light leafiness? Biscuit.

Palate; Smooth and creamy, a little bite at the end.

Finish; Long, and silky.

Thinking out loud; Initially I suggested this could be any from Balblair, Glenmorangie, Arran, Tomintoul or Glen Garioch.

On this second tasting I’m really coming down in favour of Arran, not sure why but this just shouts Arran at me. If it wasn’t distilled there it should have been

 

   
   

Black Dot; Auchentoshan, 1999, 11y, 58% ABV

Bordeaux cask matured

 
 

First tasting

Nose; Very aromatic and lightly floral wood. Some grassiness too. Almost lightly sherried but more candy floss than dark fruits. Vanilla too maybe?

Palate; Creamy mouth-feel with plums, prunes and vanilla.

Finish; Very long, lightly peppery.

Second tasting

Nose; Aromatic herbs and a faint hint of hay, but all very floral as opposed to grassy. Fruity vanilla?

Palate; Creamy, peppery, fruity. Lots of tingle. Vanilla, cherries, damson?

Finish; Very long & tingly.

Thinking out loud; Initially I suggested this could be any of Balvenie, Cragganmore, Dalwhinnie, Glenfiddich, Arran, Springbank, Tullibardine or Longmorn. On my second tasting I am discounting Arran, Scapa and Tullibardine. On my second tasting Longmorn comes to mind, but the 16y is only 40% and I think this one is quite a bit higher.

Somehow I just don’t think my first thoughts fit and I’m totally at a loss now, but one distillery remains in my mind; Balvenie, perhaps one of the single barrels?

 

   

 

  April 2008

Three blind drams

   
     

Unknown 'Sample 1'

Back in April 2008 I was given three samples to taste blind. Unfortunately, the people who brought the samples haven't been back as yet although I know they are still around Munich so I hope one day to learn exactly what they were. Anyway, for the record, here are my notes on the drams and my opinions on possible origins.

 
 

Colour: Very pale yellow

Nose: This has quite a powerful nose for one so pale. Very floral with a slight background of malt and almost a touch of sea air. At this stage, my first impression reminds me slightly of Dallas Dhu or perhaps even an Old Pulteney with the sea air, but OP's are not usually so strong on the nose. The floral notes are very strong and intense, almost like a flower bed of Hyacinth perfuming the air after a day of strong sunshine.

Palate: Wow, strong stuff, but really quite sweet in the beginning. The sweetness hits the front of the tongue with an all-out assault and then fades slowly into hints of liquorice. I seem to recall being told that these are all CS, which doesn't surprise me by the way that hit my palate. From the whiskies I have tried before, I still say Dallas Dhu is the nearest to this one, although in some ways, similar also to an IB Bladnoch which has some of these attributes, albeit not so strongly as it isn't CS.

With water: The nose has lost many of the floral notes in favour of the liquorice. This is still sweet, but the finish is now much longer and is remaining on both the immediate front and back of the tongue with a lingering spiciness.

Verdict: My thoughts of Old Pulteney have faded, this is too floral and packs too big a punch for an OP. I have to stand by my idea of Dallas Dhu or Bladnoch as these are the only two whiskies I am reminded of when I drink this one. Do I like this one? It is rather different, very pleasant, but different. Yes, I like it but it isn't one which I would drink casually, day in, day out. It has a special taste and I think I would have to be in the mood for it. I also suspect it would be a great companion to a food dish in one of my "Gourmet evenings". What would I pair it with? Probably a spicy starter or a "piquant" main course including pasta.

 

 
     

Unknown 'Sample 2'

 
 

Colour: Also very pale, but slightly brighter yellow than the first one.

Nose: Not so floral, slightly more medicinal and certainly more acidic on the nose, or do I mean pungent? Mmmmmm, on the third and fourth nosing I am getting distinct hints of roasted almonds and it smells very much like those almond stands in the cold Christmas markets over here! Once again this nose has a lot of power, but it is more one-dimensional than the first sample. Which means much less complex in aromas.

Palate: Sweet (again), but very rich and extremely smooth. The rich smoothness sits almost forever on the front of the tongue and doesn't move as the whisky slides easily down the throat. The hints of nuts (almonds) are still in evidence on the palate, but there isn't much else other than the smooth sweetness.

With water: The aroma has turned more pungent and really attacks the nose. It has also developed a slight saltiness which wasn't there before. The palate has totally changed. No longer richly smooth, it now assaults the tongue with massive spices and salt. This now has some Old Pulteney attributes, but again I would say it is a little too powerful for an OP. Bladnoch comes to mind again. Could this be the 6yr Bourbon matured version? I have one but haven't tried it yet so I can't say for certain and I'm not opening it now just to test. Again I do not believe this to be a Speyside malt. Maybe Lowland or Island, perhaps Highland.

Verdict: Again I like this and it is a little more of an 'every day' malt than the first sample. This was delightful with water, but I think I preferred it even more without. Although the first was better with 4 drops of water.

 

 
     

Unknown 'Sample 3'

 
 

Colour: This is the most colourful of the three, but it is still pale compared to most whiskies!

Nose: I seem to want to describe this nose as heavy. Definitely not sweet and with lots of dough. My goodness, I am back in my Grandma's house when she is making bread. The dough hasn't yet been put into the oven, but it has risen and is about to have the tea-towel removed before placing it into the oven. What a memory. I haven't thought of this scene for some 35-40 years, but this dram just brought it straight back to me.

Palate: This one leaves the front of the tongue alone in favour of the middle to back. Yes, it has some dough, it also has something herbal which I can't quite identify, alongside a little Juniper. The juniper reminds me of Penderyn, but this one isn't quite so distinct as my previous Penderyn experience. Although I wouldn't be too surprised if this were a slightly older, sherry-cask Penderyn.

With water: This is much more lively with water. Much more spicy, but less distinct in flavour. The finish is now much longer and includes the front of the tongue. I definitely prefer this one without the water. But that's just my palate and preference.

A summary of this mysterious Head to Head;

 
 

My favourite is the second, but then I find it hard to choose between the first and third. The only thing I can think of for the third is possibly a sherry cask Penderyn, whereas the first two could be any one of a few different things. As for ages, I get the impression that the second is the oldest and the first the youngest. Whereas I feel the third is a sherry cask, I have the impression that the first two are bourbon casks. But then what do I know, I am probably way off the mark here.
When I am finally told what these are, I will report back and let you all have a giggle at how wrong I probably am.

If any of the three kind people who gave me these are reading this and laughing at my innacuracy, please do contact me and put me out of my misery and ineptitude!
