New make-ish. Barley, wax, and some sweet dough. Peat on the background. 

Taste

Very young (not whisky yet?), but spicy, sweet (marshmellow) and buttery. Peat and smoke are there as well. 

Finish

Some anise coming through. Peatiness lingers, together with burned rubber. 

Comments

Tasted in an online blind tasting competition (Westland vs. Penderyn) on 8/10/2016. My initial comment: "Too young to be called whisky, or a very young Glen Moray?" Clearly this is not my kind of whisky.

Des tonnes de céréales, orge maltée. un peu de fruits frais. Fait super jeune.

Taste

Moût de malt, une légère fumée et quelques fruits frais

Finish

Sec, malté, légèrement sucré.

Comments

Très (trop) jeune et prix grossier.
Note tourbée sympathique mais sans plus.

Fait bien vert, immature, légère fumée, aucun intérêt particulièrement vu le prix.

Ich finde den richtig lecker. Ich habe ihn mit Ardbeg 10 und PC 10 Heavily Peated zusammen verkostet. Beim Trinken genial, erst eine mege süße und dann beim schlucken und öffnen des Mundes kommt der Rauch.
Lange, rauchig und süß bleibt er mir äusserst angenehm im Erinnerung.

Le nez est très fruité, mais un fruité "lacté" un peu comme un yaourt. On a là de la pêche, de l'ananas. Une bonne dose de vanille et un soupçon de fumée viennent parfaire ce nez.

Personnellement j'adore.

Taste

La bouche est particulière, toujours ces fruits très présents mais cette fois on a plus de fumée. La 2e vague amène des notes boisées et herbacées.

Le moins que l'on puisse dire c'est que ça sort de l'ordinaire.

Finish

Finale assez courte, boisée et toujours ce fruité étrange à la rétro-olfaction.

Comments

Whisky intéressant, dommage qu'il soit un peu cher.

N: rubber, salted cashew, peated and fruity - peach
T: candy, sweet fruits, oily, weak peat and smoke
F: weak lingering young tones
is this the oloroso finish bottle?

My feelings here are the same as for the Sherrywood: it comes across as
younger and less mature than the original Madeira wood finish version.
This one has some peat smoke in the mix. Malty sweet (with some graham
cracker, nougat, and hints of butterscotch), peppered with light smoke.
Quick, lightly smoky finish.

Remember it\'s maturity that makes whisky great! That\'s why I Love The Glenrothes! Signature Picture
