9 Notes

KayMeertens
Specialist KayMeertens Tasting note
11 Oct 2017 9:34 pm
KayMeertens gave this whisky 87 points
Color
Burnished
Nose

A light dose of eggy sulphur upfront. Fatty papaya-like fruitiness. Peat and a little dough.

Taste

Peach, pepper, peat, nutmeg and minerals.

Finish

Peat, vanilla and peach.

Comments

Much less sherried than the new 10YO, but therefore also more natural in style. Despite the new label there's not a large difference from last year's release.

Alex Fridays gave this whisky 91 points

Iodine, sweet fruits, salt, spices, baking spices, a little bit creosote notes on nose.

Creosote, peat smoke, dried fruits, spices, oak cask, iodine notes on taste.

Long finish with spices, iodine, creosote, oak dryness notes.

KayMeertens' tasting notes are spot on.  

Comments: The fat "papaya-like fruitiness" on the nose is just divine!

Tip: This needs time to age in the bottle and in the glass. Try to drink the bottle slowly, and when you pour let it sit in the glass for at least 10 minutes.

Expert Senior schero Tasting note

schero gave this whisky 88 points
Color
Burnished
Nose

Mineralisch, tiefe rote Früchte, Schokolade, etwas Schwefel, Zitrusnoten, spritzige Orange, leichter Rauch, Meeresluft, Vanille mir der Zeit 

Taste

Orangensüße, rote Früchte, mineralisch, auch hier ganz leichter Rauch, Vanille, Eichenwürze, leicht trocken werdend

Finish

Sehr mineralischer Abgang, alles schön verwoben, minimale Eichenbitterkeit, Kaffee, ewig verweilende Schokolade

Comments

Der ist klasse. Auch wen ich eher auf Bourbonfass-Lagerung bei Springbank stehe, ist der wirklich ein Tipp für alle, die Springer mit Sherry eher mögen.

Expert Senior Toffie76 Tasting note

Toffie76 gave this whisky 88 points
Color
Burnished
Nose

fumée, tourbe, une touche sulfureuse , du cuir. Tourbe fermière, foin, étable. Colle/solvant, abricots compotés. Gouache/plasticine.

Brioche/ sucré/salé.

complexe

amandes/massepain

huile de moteur/caoutchouc

Taste

on retrouve les éléments présents au nez. c'est fort agréable et d'une belle longueur. Tout semble équilibré et le développement se déroule de manière très fluide. Un beau voyage dans une foule de saveurs.

on retrouve (un peu) en plus sage et en sourdine les sensations du 12 ans cask strenght.

Finish

On termine avec un petit retour fumé et malté.

Comments

une belle expression , remarquable d'élégance et de complexité.
