Whisky Reviews for Peat Chimney 12-year-old Wy

    I do not believe this
    is better than the 8 Year Old (which was not too great in itself). The peat
    plays too little a role, making the name Peat Chimney somewhat misplaced.
    Having said that, a bottle is less than 35 EUR. Thanks, Marc!
    • Nose
      It is very promising
      on the nose. Baked apples and pear drops with some vanilla are immediately
      joined by wet earth. Hints of ashes. The peat is pretty quiet. The nose is
      mostly sweet.
    • Taste
      While it is very soft
      on the palate, not much remains of the sweet nose. Now the spices (pepper,
      ginger) and the peat speak. Well, the peat quickly retreats again. Yes, it
      falls back to make room for a sour touch. Bunna in the mix? Midpalate it
      becomes more sweet again. The whole is very soft and quite quaffable.
    • Finish
      The finish is mildly
      smoky on ashes, vanilla and a touch of liquorice.

    Almost too smooth but very drinkable - my best guess would be Caol Ila and something - in general it's just a bit lacking of punch
    • Nose
      Vanilla, apple compote, fine peat and smoke, sea breeze
    • Taste
      Oily, fine peat and smoke, little fruitiness, subtle sweetness
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm

    Nose: Sweet BBQ sauce. Fresh apples. Oaky vanilla, Not to much as the peat calms that down

    Palate: Salty. Mouthcoating sugar, like cola without the fizz.Finish: The peat is there, and finaly takes the lead! Some spices. verry nice!

    Blind, I would have typed on a Bowmore. The bitter aromas dominate my taste a little too much. Not bad, but not outstanding.
    • Nose
      Light smoke, some stomach acid (Bowmore?), Violets, candied grapes, caramelized sugar and a hint of eucalyptus.  
    • Taste
      Very soft. Pecan nut, clear smoke (smoked peppers), light milk chocolate and some filter coffee.
    • Finish
      Medium long finish with strong smoke. Green peppers, smoked almonds, light oak and some unsweetened espresso.
