  1. peatbogger scored this whisky 79 points Specialist

    Tasted at Tunsberg Whisky Festival 2019.
    Have considered getting this as I've had a couple of Sauternes matured whiskies that have been very good. like the BenRiach 15YO.
    However, here the combination of Sauternes and peat are more of a clash than a match to me.
    Happy to have tried it, so I can strike it off my wish list.
    • Nose
      83 83
      The nose is interesting.
      Clear influence by the wine casks, it smells of Sauternes.
      White fruits, mellon, grapes.
      Underneath is a carpet of peaty smoke and light saltyness.
    • Taste
      77 77
      Nice rich mouthfeel.
      Arrives with Sauternes, fruity sweetness.
      Quickly followed by smoke, peat, salt. All much more dominant than on the nose.
      To me this combination doesn't work too well.
      Rather than melting into an interesting combination they seem to stay seperate and compete for attention.
    • Finish
      76 76
      A medium lenght finish where there is some fruit, but a rather pale and muted peat wins this battle of tastes in the very end.

    Nice nose, palate is restrained, but the finish for me is it’s best part. I can taste a white grape freezie outside by a ashy fire.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Mild peat, rubber, melon, grapes
    • Taste
      86 86
      Ashy smoke/peat, sweetness (grape juice), pepper, a bit flat (expecting more to happen)
    • Finish
      88 88
      Wine influence found here, sweet grapes and peat balance nicely.

    Not very complex but a very nice combination of smoke and sweet notes.
    • Nose

    • Finish
      88 88
      Still some peppers remain, sweet smoke, honey, pretty long
