- N: a distinct yet not dominant smokiness is in my glass. The fresh Green and yellow colours of spring mix themselves with burning logs. There’s sweetness lingering below the citric young character as well. Never would have guessed this to be 19 years old!
M: sweet, oily pepper notes tickle my tongue. It’s really dry! There’s probably more than one Sherry cask in here but yet the sweet notes do not dominate at all
F: here the age comes to play. There’s an intense dry character that doesn’t want to leave. I like those black pepper notes as well. Strong finish, the alcohol also kicks in a bit here
Very round whisky, nothing dominates too much. But, then again, nothing really stands out. Tasty, no question. Exceptional? Sadly not
- Not mine at all. Tried twice. A sour note on the nose. Taste is simply not enough. Also almost no smoke noticeable. In the finish, a noticeably not well integrated bitterness, unfortunately not well done.
the first impression is immediately pleasing; marine smoke; Vanilla; Dried fruit; First and foremost you have sweet smoke, which is not too intrusive
mineral, slightly earthy; always cute; "cold" smoke; again very earthy and mineral; then comes a fruity sweetness; Vanilla; sweet malt;
Smoke, but not too cluttered; beautiful sweetness; slight fruitiness; the components are well balanced, very pleasing and coordinated
- I was allowed to try a sample in the whiskey house. Thanks for that Marco!
A mega blend from memory. No Islay in the face, but a really nicely balanced whiskey, which is undoubtedly dominated by Bowmore in nosing. Mild, the alcohol is really well integrated, very slightly salty and only subtle smoke, but also very flowery, balanced and round without excessive sweetness. Hot. 90
In the tasting, however, Caol Ila clearly dominates, a little pear and you can feel the sherry a little more. 89
I liked the nosing a tad better than the tasting.
The finish has not fallen off and is oily and very light smoke. 89
Exciting story and I'd rather have such a great blend than an overfinished single malt.
Please more of such interesting things, but then at affordable prices - although I also know that it is difficult with such an Islay story and age ;-)
