    Notes von der SMWS Website: https://www.smws.com/hop-scotch

    Ausgabepreis April 2019: 75,00 GBP

    "There is an intense unusualness in the aroma on this one. Fresh and bursting with ripe green apples, kiwi, jasmine, strawberry liqueur, lime cordial and marzipan. Not to mention fresh, zingingly tropical hops. With water it continued its plunge into fascination with icing sugar, lemon sherbet, orange oil, meringue and white marshmallow. The palate displayed dark chocolate to begin, followed by After Eight mints, lemongrass, more hoppy IPA and verbena. Reduction brought hot crossed bun spices, wild flowers and a final hoppy twist. Unsurprisingly this whisky spent 15 years in a bourbon barrel before being transferred to a first-fill IPA barrel."

      Zarte Frucht, leicht alkoholisch. Eher zurückhaltend!

      Wuchtig fruchtig und würzig. Etwas Hopfen...aber das ist wohl eher Einbildung.
    • Finish

      Sehr kurz und unverbindlich. Die Würze bleibt etwas hängen und die dezente Bitterkeit ebenso. Mann muss ihn mehrfach die Gelegenheit geben sich zu entfalten, dann macht er es auch. Ein angenehm unaufdringlicher Malt. Unkompliziert aber gut trinkbar. Spannendes Fassprojekt - aber kein unbedingtes "Muss"...aus meiner Sicht.
