Expert Senior Pollenflug Tasting note
23 Nov 2017 5:37 pm
Pollenflug gave this whisky 87 points
Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Meinen ersten Eindruck dominieren angenehme Sherryeinflüsse und frische (an salzige Meeresluft erinnernde) sowie florale Noten. Der Alkohol (46,3%) ist sehr gut eingebunden und nicht spürbar. Süßer Honig, schöne Karamellaromen, Orangen, Kirschen, Marzipan, leicht geröstetes Malz, Nüsse, Schokolade, würzige Eiche und eine ganz zarte Rauchnote heben sich langsam aus meinem Glas. Der Duft ist sehr vollmundig und kräftig. Die schöne Vielschichtigkeit überrascht mich immer wieder aufs Neue für einen „nur“ 12 Jahre alten Standardwhisky.

Taste

Kräftiger Antritt mit einer angenehm öligen Textur. Ein leichtes Prickeln setzt auf der Zungenspitze ein (Pfeffer/Ingwer). Süße Honig- und Karamellnoten sind sofort präsent und bilden die geschmackliche Basis. Geröstetes Malz, Walnüsse, Kakao/Schokolade, Gewürze, reife Äpfel, Orangen und dunkle Sherryfrüchte (Pflaumen & Kirschen) vermischen sich mit dem süßen Fundament. Die würzigen Eichenholznoten intensivieren sich im Vergleich zur Nase etwas und runden mit einem maritimen Einschlag die aromatische Vielfalt ab. Tief verborgen im Hintergrund registriere ich wieder eine zarte Rauchnote. Der Malt ist wunderbar weich, abwechslungsreich und ausgewogen. Doch Vorsicht: Gefährlich süffig!

Finish

Mittellang bis lang, würzig-süß und wärmend. Milde Sherrynoten, Karamell, Malz und nussige Schokolade lassen den Bunnahabhain sanft ausklingen. Die würzigen Eichenholznoten sind spürbar, jedoch nie zu aufdringlich oder dominant. Ich nehme weder Bitterkeit noch Trockenheit am Gaumen wahr.

Gin clear
Nose

the sherry influence seems to be a little less compared to the older version but they are really quite similar. I presume that the older one could breath for a while (sample), so this could also be the reason for the marginal difference. you could call the new batch a tad rounder. still there is quite some sherry  on raisins, figs and dates. malty and nutty. a touch of icing sugar. orange peels. chestnuts. and a fine thread of smoke.

After some minutes in the glass I find the old one a bit more sour and the new one oakier and a little earthy.

Taste

starts a little narrow but opens very quickly in the mouth and coats the whole tongue. It has a certain sharpness that does not come from the alcohol, remind me of black pepper and ginger. Other than that it delivers an ultra-clean sherry profile with dried fruit, oranges and quite some salt. don´t get any smoke on the palate. spicy on mild cloves and perhaps fresh green coriander.

Finish

medium and very clean, still a bit salty

Comments

a very fine dram and for sure a bang-for-your-buck whisky. really high quality and quite complex for a twelver. my compliments to Bunnahabhain!

I liked the old one very much, still I find this one a wee bit better. 88/100 (considering the price

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Sherry, florale Noten, Zimt, frische Minze, etwas Salz, Holz, Honig, bittere Orangenmarmelade, leichter Pfeffer

Taste

prickelnd, leicht ölig, süßer Honig, ein Hauch weißer Pfeffer, etwas Schärfe, trocken werdend...holzig, leichter Sherry....Pflaumen...malzig

Finish

lang, angenehme Würzigkeit und leichte Schärfe, Sherry und Holznoten vom Fass...ganz leichte Trockenheit

Comments

Tolles Teil, sehr süffig und definitiv kaufwürdig, da das PLV aus meiner Sicht hervorragend ist. Man sollte ihm allerdings etwas Zeit im Glas geben, dadurch wurde er für mich erst richtig gut.

Whisk(e)y is water - without the bad parts

Vladimir Ziryanov gave this whisky 84 points

Нос - свежий, достаточно мощный, хересно-апельсиново-гранатовый, в конце немного вишни выскакивает, многообещающе - 22
Вкус - прилично вяжущий, вишнево-хересный, плосковат - 21
Финиш - сильно скатывается в какую-то не очень благородную винность, откровенно кислит, довольно долгое но не очень приятное послевкусие - 20
Баланс - 21
Итого: 83-84, ближе к 84, наскидку предыдущие 12-летние регулярки немного больше нравились, но и эта вполне неплоха как базовая
