Auld Reekie 10 yr Anyone??

Postby talisker10 » Mon Nov 17, 2008 2:26 am

I got no replies to this in my SMS in Antarctica I will try it again here. Michael at Whiskygalore recommended Auld Reekie..I have had about 1/2 the bottle in the past 10 days down here and it is just fantastic Islay whisky. I assume since they call it Islay malt that it is a vatted whisky--not a blend--but a vatting of multiple Islay whiskies. It is fantastic stuff. I tasted it last night alongside Laphroaig CS and the Auld Reekie won. A smooth, creamy, nose that is a bit like Talisker, then loads of peat, then a dry, citrusy finish. I have never had Caol Ila, I was wondering if that could be than main malt in this whisky? BTW, it is bottled at 46% ABV and is non-colored and non chill filtered.

Has anyone else had it? Has the 24 hours of daylight made me batty or is this stuff really that good?

You never know it could actually be that good!!

Whiskey is really a mood thing though isn't it? I know it is for me anyway so perhaps Auld Reekie (great name by the by) is just the malt for someone working in extremely challenging conditions in 24hr daylight?

According to the website of my local store it's indeed mostly Caol Ila (for what that's worth). Unfortunately they don't have it in stock anymore so I can't try it...
