  1. chrizthewiz scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Nose: Smoked bacon. Old leather jacket. Freshly squeezed lemon sprinkled with salt. Sea breeze. A bonfire on the beach. Driftwood. Wet stones. Menthol. Fishermen's Friends. Very mineral and earthy. Some forest honey and orange rind in the background.

    Taste: Very oily and leathery arrival. Afterwards, sweet and salty flavors spread on the tongue. Roasted and salted peanuts. Macadamia. Bacon. Iodine tincture and cough drops. In the finish, a beautiful, leathery bitterness from the oak, with espresso notes and tart orange peel. The nose is now getting fresher and more mineral.

    Comments: Maltman has delivered again. Caol Ila from sherry casks are rather rare. Really nice, maritime malt with not too dominant sherry influence. If you like Caol Ila, you will be very happy here. / 87

      Already when pouring, the smoke is present in the room. I do not even have to smell directly in the glass. In the glass then camp fire smoke and a pleasant fresh sea breeze. The alcohol contributes to the freshness and is quite present, but not pungent or unpleasant. There are also red gums, salted lemons, raisins, burnt caramel, woody notes, black pepper and mineral youth at the same time. A nice game of flavors. But: he needs time. I left him a good 20-30 minutes in the glass before I started nosing.

      Strong at the beginning, dry and very smoky. At first also sweet on the tongue. Significant sherry influence and a strong tingling on the tongue, which fits very well. Again, the typical citrus note is there and is accompanied by an intense Pfeffrigkeit, spices (cloves), smoked ham, dark dried fruit, cane sugar and proper wood influence for the young age. Nevertheless, the malt is not difficult, but also brings a nice freshness. I can recommend some water, so the aromas are a bit fuller and the malt sweeter.

      Long and warm. What remains is smoke, some dark chocolate, a few herbs and a slight bitterness.
