  2. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Recently had a 2015 edition of this 25 year old malt. Curious if I can find some differences.
    • Nose
      Again Soft, sweet, salty, gentle and delicate peat. This is very well aged! It’s not a peat bomb, it’s all about balance and age here. But this nose is more soft and a little more dull. Still very good but less impressive in my opinion. Also there is more fruitiness inhere.
    • Taste
      More silky then the 2015. But again very delicate and lightly profiled. The body grows again. Just like in the 2015. Again more fruit but also again eggplant and seaweed. A little more salty then edition 2015.
    • Finish
      Long! It’s almost exactly like I described before:
      The finish gives a very lively experience with loads of warmth. Salty, sweet peat is present and an intense layer of smoked fruits and veggies as well. I get nuttiness in like freshly baked macadamia nuts I get from the farmers market almost every week. Such a lovely dram!

      So with 2 different years, 5 years apart from wachter, my conclusion is that the quality and taste are remarkably constant.

    I like this one, the abv is fine but the older vintages with higher strength are better.
    No notes, tasted at a show.

    Extremely salty, I love that.
    However, I might understand some people thinking is a bit too much maritime.
