- Plenty of Caol Ila in this one. Definitely one of the better JW Green Labels
A blanket of smoke covers the glass. Behind it comes a sack of malts and oats, some touches of pineapple and green apples always creeping in. A delicate coastal note arrives completing the package.
Sweet on the arrival, with candy like sweetness. Quickly it turns to spices and lots of ground black pepper. The sweetness returns to overtake the spice and with it the smoke beings creeping. Green apple moves forward and brings with it some brine and maritime.
Drying but with lots of smoke hovering. Long with plenty of Islay to boot.
- 21 22 20 21 84 - one bottle - Tasty, drinkable, good batch!
21 22 21 22 86 - another bottle
Lab work with TOKLIAN (Alex Mikhnenko) - compared it in a lineup with 2010 (WB id 124802), 2012 (WB id 123158), standard 43% 2016 (WB id 80801) and 48% release for Taiwan (WB id 80396) .
release for Taiwan 48% - 21 20 21 20 82 - good, but very simple, maybe because they compared it in the lineup with older versions?)))
After standing up, he became more alcoholic, feeling that this is a strong version of 2016, an advanced version for hot Taipei)))
So he stood in the glass for a short time and so "liked", well, 82, if you are kind to him and do not chop ...
2016 - 20 20 21 20 81 - ok, simple, and not very easy to drink, maybe because they compared it in the lineup with older versions?))), This release is far from 2010 and 2012, sadly ... given stand him ... the assessment has not changed, 81 max
2012, Apple, Sweetness and Honey - Kragganmore Strength, Linkwood and sherry in action ... the taste is the same sweet, very tasty!
2010, more elegant than 2012, less sweetness, sharp, seems older than 2012, both in age and style, light tingling at 43% enhances the effect
2012 is more beautiful because of the sweetness, and 2010 is more elegant, old-regime, sharper, we assume the influence of either the old linkwood, or the old Talisker, or both.
Standing in 2010 unexpectedly changed, the Earth went (!), Very much like Bowmore))) - with the breath of the Islands in the batch, Speyside won! And still delicious - 86!
2012, the development process is similar to 2010, but more exhausted in a short time, but we will leave 85, delicious!
