Whisky Reviews for Nantou 2014 SMWS 138.2

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.13 points

  1. Tauti scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Direct comparison between 138.1 and 138.2 (both peated / 4 years old).
    While the 138.1 goes more towards Caol Ila, it reminds me of a young Lagavulin. However, the 138.2 sometimes reminds me of vegetables, which means that it is rated worse than the 138.1

    Edit: Retasting on 08/07/2020, gave a few more points this time. Because the whisky was less bitter and sour.
    • Nose
      Rhubarb, tart, light vegetable note, lemon peel, light peat, bacon burning leaves, old white wine
    • Taste
      Short alcoholic sweetness, then tart and oily again, lemon, rhubarb compote without sugar, mineral, smoky, manzanilla, heather and burnt honey. Significantly drier than the 138.1.
    • Finish
      Getting dry, ash, slight bitterness remains

  2. FernetBranco did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Notes from the SMWS Website: https://www.smws.com/embraced-by-peat

    Issue price (March 2019): 85,00 GBP

    "There is peat up front but it is soft and subtle with underlying notes of brown butter, roasted nuts, heather ale and fragrant herbal essences. With water there is a big note of lemons grilling on a BBQ, violets, swimming pools and lapsang souchong. The palate possesses an immediate, big drying smokiness. Lots of aniseed, smoked monkey nuts, rapeseed oil and bashed fennel seeds. Dilution makes it creamier and more syrupy in texture. A big, generous sweetness with notes of white marshmallow, juicy fruit chewing gum, orange oils and dried mango slices. "
