- so, here are some words on WF: http://www.whiskyfun.com/2017/New-NAS-blended-malts.html
- Tasted with a few drops of water.
Nice nose on white fruits, butter and cream but it is a little closed even with a little water.
After a while some faint creosote notes, mixing with a dirty peat,this is really good nose.
Creamy, peaty mouthfeel, very substantial and the peat grows in your mouth but the fruit keeps it in check and then a slightly bitter grapefruit note creeps in, I reckon there is some Caol Ila in the mix here
Ever so slightly hot but the balance is quality here, not a mass of flavours and a bit one dimensional but it really does work.
Nice work CB
Edit, after playing around for a few minutes there is a metallic aftertaste which knocks it down a few points on the finish, the only negative thing about it really but the palate more than makes up for this.
- Balance (22)
Delicious Ardbeg (I think so) and something else (89)
Sweet peat, candy and ointment, ash ... overripe fruit and dust, dry pear, grass ... chocolate butter and caramel popcorn, farm (22.5)
Fatty, spicy, fruit and smoked meats (22,5)
Smooth, fatty, salty, citrus and caramel finish (22)
- N21 P22 F21 B22
- Peculiar dram, similar to a vermouth. If I have to guess what whiskies are in, I would say Arran and Talisker.
Island style, salt and smoke
Sweet tangerines, then green olives. Strange and intriguing combination
Quite long but it loses some power after ten minutes
