In direct comparison to the Authenticus a very rough, unbalanced single malt without special profile. The four-cask maturation creates a mix of flavors in which no cask is really able to assert itself.
Above all, one has to keep an eye on the price, there are so many better smokers for half the price and less ...
Currently my favorite dram, that's why I ordered another bottle.
Open for 3 months, level about 50%
Dates, walnuts and marzipan meet in the nose. A great, with fine, well-integrated mild smoke that unobtrusively supports - a bit like warm bicycle tires
Nutty, spicy. Mild oak that takes up space in your mouth and becomes stronger. Orange peel, dark chocolate and a hint of cherry spreads out. Always pleasant oak flavor No Laphroaig feeling at all, nothing metallic
Tender, round, soft (maybe I'm distracted because my neighbor is doing a corona workout on the balcony ...). A pleasantly soft, mild spiciness remains with hints of sherry and port wine. Definitely makes you hungry for more, just like your neighbor.
Aroma: very peaty ... salted, smoked meat, saffron, black pepper ... far away the aromas of medicine ... Taste: smoked, salty, peppered ... peat in the foreground ... warm and warm ... Finish: long, peat and smoked, with a touch of medicine. It will be pleasant to fans of Islay. Peat crushed the whole character of molt and turned it into a likeness of Laphroaig. But the balance is good and the overall experience is pleasant. 86.
