    [May, 2021] Another dram from Cadenhead's online warehouse tasting and so far I have not tasted any High Coast whisky from Sweden...

    ...and most probably I will wait with my next dram until this malt got adult. This is ordinary and very exchangeable "young extremist" whisky with lots of peat and wood and almost no malt to offer. Perfectly fitting into the Zeitgeist of "give me more" - more peat, more wood etc. Fortunately, I grew up in different times.
    • Nose
      78 78
      The colour is deep gold and the nose offers an immature young profile with way too heavy wooden notes and peat impressions that smell a little unpleasant. This is more a Bourbon or Rye whisky's nose, unfortunately I am not a fan of both.
    • Taste
      79 79
      The taste is very simple on young barley sugars, heavy tannins and bitter peat - a dram of the extremes but I prefer harmony over pure power (because it is much harder to reach). Still I do not know the malt's profile of the High Coast distillery, because it is completely buried under the heavy wooden and peaty flavours.
    • Finish
      78 78
      The dram arrives hot on the palate which turns later into a warming and coating feeling. The finish is of medium length with a bitter / drying / astringent ending and no new impressions. Water strengthens the bitter-astringent woods and a further reduction flattens the dram.
