  1. bimbes184 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Nose:
    At first I'm surprised that he's pretty smoky, I would not have expected that, as the official notes of that are not mentioned. Red fruits reminiscent of red groats, sour cherry is the dominant. Smoked almonds, roasted hazelnuts, again a dash of Amarena cherry ice cream, smoked bacon, a bit mineral and mint. After the sweet-smoky experience comes now properly chocolate in the nose, which reminds me a bit of the ice cream candy from my childhood. He comes over older than the numbers suggest on the bottle, which could be quite 5-6 years older from the nose.

    Taste:
    Oily and set, smoked bacon again, oak, chocolate, warming it goes down. Here much less fruit than in the nose, the chocolate (bittersweet) is much dominant but cool. Soft smoke, sweetened peppermint tea, dried fig, sour cherry liqueur and dark chocolate remain.

    finish:
    Medium long, the smoke is still present, the oak comes back, espresso, very dark. No more fruit, here dominates in descending order the chocolate, the smoke, seasoning and in the end he is actually a little salty.

    Complex thing this malt. It is clearly dominated by chocolate, but has much else to offer and delicious. Beautiful campeltown character with a great barrel.

    Very good whisky with good PLV and remarkably way better than the sister barrel 17 / 106-3. One of my favorites.
