Burnished
Nose

Torf-Rauch überwiegt. Brennt in der Nase. Mit etwas Wasser tritt der Rauch zurück und Karamell und die Sherry-Fässer kommen nach vorne.

Taste

Wenig komplex. Teer,Torf und Jod. Brennt auf der Zunge. Mit etwas Wasser wird nur das Brennen unterdrückt. Kein Zugewinn an Aromen. Vielleicht wird Karamell etwas dominanter.

Finish

Lang und rauchig. Am Ende spürbar Karamell.

Comments

Etwas enttäuscht. Kommt für mich an den Uigeadail (Uiwiegeil) nicht ran.

Mineralische Gerüche, starker Rauch und dann kommt Karamell. Meeresluft. Eine starke alkoholische Note.

Taste

Als erstes ganz klar der Räucherschinken. Sehr trocken leicht fruchtig und zum schluß wird er leicht Salzig.

Lang und trocken.

Comments

Single dram note. 2013_11 in a blind tasting, I was rather convinced this is a Port Charlotte...

Remember - whisky scores and impressions are highly subjective and situational by nature - so don't go and buy whisky according to someone else's taste...
