Also played with water, which he can take a lot of when you want to play.
Had a 10cl sample here and was able to test it extensively. One of the most honest malts I've tried in the past five years. Respect!
Nice label, great presentation, exciting key data - and finally a not so overfinished whisky again.
After that I had an Ardbeg 10 which is one of my favorite whisky. So let's be honest: both are great, but the Ardbeg is just too thin. If the Ardbeg gets 88 in the nosing, then I honestly have to give this one 89 in total.
Try it for yourself!
Nice fruity smoky note with bacon and some bacon. The 58.5% are remarkably well integrated for this comparatively young malt.
So after the Islay notes there is some green apple, pear, lemon, crispbread and now iodine again.
I like that this malt can handle a lot of water for its age without becoming thin. There is a development taking place within the framework that can be expected here.
Rarely seen such an honest malt. Now I have burned matches and a welcoming cutie. I have to try now.
Wow, great start, strong, but not sharp. I have Islay and fruit again, vanilla sweetness, lagavulin notes, i.e. iodine after the sweetness and then a lot of dry smoke and sweetness in the interplay.
Better, more exciting and more interesting than expected.
Remains smoky for a medium time and with a little residual sweetness.
