Nose

Ah, the darker side of whisky! By this I mean burnt rubber, tarmac, graphite, ash, burnt twigs. Yet it's not as monochrome as one might expect. There is a subtle note of old style malt, a bit of honey even, menthol, and a little bit of dried fruits.

Taste

It's a combination of sweet and spicy that I've never come across (nor will I taste it again I'm afraid). It's oliy, greasy as a good old Irish Pot Still can be. Engine oil, a workshop, a few salty notes even, and menthol. Then, licorice root, and some heather. Besides, it's very malty, with apricot and dried fruit, and a good portion of pepper in the end. 

Finish

Long, with a nice combination of dark notes (oil, graphite smoke, workshop, licorice) and green notes (chlorophyl, mint). The spiciness is not as heavy as the palate suggested, nor is the finish bitter.

Comments

Seriously good stuff, one of the best I've tasted so far. It's dark and green overall, but so nicely balanced that it's not unfriendly (unless you can't stand the dark smoky impression). But it's not just that, also showing malt and fruit to provide balance.

Nose

Woh, woh, woh. Sharp, austère. Pas sexy au premier nosing mais tout de même assez remarquable de précision et de complexité : graviers, pierre à fusil, camphre, menthol, légèrement fermier voire animal et peut être un peu d’OBE (métal, vieille boite à outils, fruits de la passion).. Très direct et précis. A l’aération, l’OBE ressort davantage mais il y a aussi une belle fraicheur et un peu de chlorophylle.

Taste

Excellente. D’abord un peu confus, puis tout se met en place en quelques seconds. On retrouve presque l’essentiel des notes présentes au nez. La tourbe est plus franche, la menthe bien marquée. Il y a ici pas mal d’épices avec surtout du poivre et un côté piquant. Touche métallique encore une fois et légère amertume en milieu de bouche.

Finish

Très longue, ultra fraiche et légèrement picotante/pétillante. Point d’alcool mais plutôt du piment. Très long sur la menthe poivrée.

Comments

Un whisky remarquable, équilibré et finalement assez charmeur. C’est très précis et relativement causant/ouvert.
