  1. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nice firepower, ashy peat, full ashtray, but also a touch of vanilla citrus. I read that it is Blended, I only smell Ardbeg here. With a sweet, honeyed side, fermented milk, syrupy fruit, lychee, mango, guava. It is a little mineral, quartz, gypsum, mixed with powder. In the mouth, the alcohol is well integrated, however the flavors are light, always exotic fruits, bananas, coconut, rose water, then the spices rise, it is quite strong. Chili, ginger. The finish is a bit harsh, but it is long, ashy, very beefy and vegetal. A little indulgence in the retro-olfaction, vanilla and pastry cream. Genoese.

    A very nice whisky! There is a huge gap in complexity between the nose and the taste. The taste really is the strong point of this whisky. A definite recommend!

    I would definitely guess that the main components in this blend are Ardbeg (smoke) and Bunnahabhain (saltiness and mineral). It is by all means much smokier than the Laphroaig Triple Wood which I have sitting in a glass next to the Peat Chimney.

      The alcohol hits immediately. Starts with notes of sherry, mineral-ish smokiness. Like a beach bonfire. Some sweet, sugary notes. Not too much complexity.
    • Taste

      Really delicious!
      First, some citrusy notes and a lot of sweetness. After that, the smoke starts to develop on the tongue. Notes of toasted bread and caramel. Really delicious. The 57% are not that sharp. Overall a well-rounded taste, but again, not very complex.

      Clear saltiness, mineral notes, still very sweet. The finish lasts long. Notes of toasted bread come back.

    in the nose quite a transition over time.
    Sharp taste with green moments.
    Tip: get a sample first, because the malt has very different aromas between nose and taste. Kind of ambivalent ... hard to grasp this malt.
    [80 - 76 = 'really not bad'-whiskey -> but do I need a (second) bottle?]

      light to moderately strong peat smoke, behind it the sweetness of honey and caramel, which flash up again and again, but are not directly tangible.
      The peat smoke turns into an ashy and cold campfire smoke over time.
      With a little standing time, it gets grassy moments (dried grass, almost hay), but also a spiciness and very light citrus aromas.
      With even more time, I get salty moments, including sea breezes and seaweed ... mmh, interesting. That displaces the grassy note.
      The alcohol stings in the form of a sharp peppery note again and again.
      With drops of water: the hypocritical character comes into play more strongly, it also has something of a cowshed in it; but luckily it doesn't come across as violent.
      Also feels like a greenhouse where tomatoes are grown.
      After the first sip I smell burnt rubber - but only slightly.

      very sweet in the beginning; decent heat and flavor - uh, it can take water ...
      turns into a dark green moment, mossy-earthy, fresh hay, greenhouse.
      Second sip: sweeter, more honey and caramel, becomes more viscous. The smoke initially recedes, then appears again towards the end.
      Too hot for me personally, I have to put a lot of water on it.
      With more water: sweeter, gentler, more peat, but also a little more rubber.

      Long-lasting peat smoke in the mouth, all other aromas are gone relatively quickly.
      rubber burned again on exhalation.

    Powerful and powerful Islay whiskey with a bit of heat, but not unpleasant
    • Nose
      82 82
      Vegetable, heavily smoky and peaty, slightly sweet, a little stable
    • Taste
      84 84
      BBQ notes, mineral-salty sea notes, paprika, a hint of ginger and citrus notes
    • Finish
      80 80
      Slightly spicy, somewhat cheesy, some cow and goat barn

    Color: Sauternes. After a swirl, tons of really small heads, at first, which then evolve to thick gravity defying legs

      Is that peat and smoke? Well sir of course! Cold fireplace after the fire extinguished itself, medical bandages, lots of grey pepper, and once again honey. After some time, iodine.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Sweet smoke at first for a few seconds, then the alcohol kicks in. Less creamy than the first too. Smoked wood, coastal, ash, earthy feeling.
      With water, it is way more sweet and fruity, spices, stewed fruits, water really helps opening it. Way better now.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Finale: medium to short, a bit mineral, with a hint of citrus
