Nose

OH MY GOD ! Crème brûlée, miel et vernis, MAIS PAR CAMION DE 38 TONNES ! Bois ciré, fruits généreux qui complètent le panorama. 

Avec quelques gouttes d'eau - allons-y mollo - du toffee, du bois brûlé, un côté laiteux. 

Quelle claque ! Et je n'ai encore rien mis en bouche.

Taste

Les miel et les épices s'entrechoquent ! (A défaut d'un meilleur verbe. Non pas que l'un essaye de prendre le pas sur l'autre, mais c'est une vraie explosion de saveurs) Le tout reste d'une grande douceur mais avec à la fois un relief incroyable. Micro-trace de tourbe.

Finish

Les épices douces pétillent...explosent DANS UN PUTAIN DE FEU D'ARTIFICE me paraît plus juste, à la réflexion !

Avec des fruits à profusion, qui se révèlent complètement exotiques avec quelques gouttes d'eau.  

Beaucoup de vanille dans la longueur. 


La tourbe ne revient...que lors du rinçage du verre, au nez. 

Comments

Quel moment !

C'est dur à dire, mais peut-être le meilleur whisky que j'aie goûté à ce jour. 

Enthousiasme 5/5 (et même plus ?)

Whisky n°1468

hs305 gave this whisky 92 points

[November, 2002]  I had this dram during a Prof. Schobert "Islay" tasting at Rolandsbogen.

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 92,5.  My notes state an average blonde colour and no legs but a lot of late tears (oily texture at the glass).  The nose is very fruity (pears, currants and many more).  The mouthfeel is oily and creamy.  The body is sweet and fruity again with some spices added (peppers).  With water it gets even more balanced and smoother.  The finish is long and beautiful.

There is no accounting for taste...
