[February, 2017]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 30 Euro in March, 2015.  This batch was bottled on January 13th, 2015.

[October, 2015]  Together with friends I emptied another bottle that I bought for 30 Euro in March, 2015.  This batch was bottled on January 13th, 2015.

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 it 85 both times.  My notes state a fresh and nicely balanced malty and peaty profile.  One of the best bargain NAS editions out there...

There is no accounting for taste...

Kaminfeuer, geräucherter Schinken, kalte Asche. Es breitet sich dieses rauchige Aroma aus. Gefällt mit gut.

Taste

Im Geschmack kommt etwas Frucht heraus. Fast wie Kompott, leicht und fruchtig. 

Finish

Der Rauch nimmt sich dann etwas zurück, die Fassnoten kommen hervor.

Der ist jung und spritzig, leicht und aromatisch.

Richtig gut!

Tastes and smells like walking down the path to the Laphroaig Distillery on Islay. A waft of fresh burning peat hits you, than  as you walk past an open door where the yeasty smells escape from the mash tuns with their bubbling frothy worts. These in turn mix with vapours from the still and the the quietly sleeping barrels in the number one warehouse. AAaahh! 

TOM PT is really fresh sweet young  smokey spirit (almost new-makey), smooth and delicate and very different. There's also slight earthy barrel hinting of older whiskies perhaps (or refilled old barrels?). In my opinion fantastic value. (94 Murray pts - see also the Whisky Bible).
 The initial ‘distillery smells' drops off as the bottle empties and whisky’s flavour and smell flattens out. As a young whisky the journey of flavours is speeded up - no need to wait, sip and savour as with older whisky - where time and patience rewards and unlocks in the glass. This is fleeting stuff, blink and the moment will pass.
 I've heard that in ye olden times, before the watchful eye of the Scotch Whisky Association, there was no intentional hanging around (ageing): small oak barrels were the most convenient way of shipping the spirit to the customer - especially when the process was illicit.  Ageing (on the journey down to the big cities) was almost a bi-product... (although smaller barrels 'age' whisky more quickly, due to the higher wood to whisky ratio)
So in my view one shouldn't dismiss young whisky, it's probably more traditional than 'aged' whisky. In fact peated whisky is often at its most vibrant when young - think Kilchoman, Octomore in many indie Islay bottlings... Peated whisky was traditional in the Highland and Speyside before the onset of coal fired stills....
I recall this was one of the first of a tranche of  new, peated NAS whiskies that became cheaply and widely available in the UK supermarkets. Fair play - I say and 90pts from me

Nose

Leichter Rauch, kleinen Noten von essbaren Algen & Hummerschalen, ganz leicht rußig, ein Hauch medizinal. Wasser macht den Duft bitterer/herber. Will in diesem Falle heissen: Tablettenröhrchen, etwas Rauch, dahinter grüne, unreife Früchte.

Taste

Startet irgendwie neutral, wird dann etwas bitter & rauchig, bevor eine speyside-artige Süsse hervorkommt. Aber irgendwie weiß diese Mischung nicht, wohin sie soll... am Ende ein Hinweis auf ein Medizinschränkchen. Mit Wasser süsser & dennoch auch bitterer, weiterhin rauchige Noten mit grünen & gelben Früchten.

Finish

Haftender Abgang. Wechselspiel zwischen Süsse & Rauch. Dahinter eine stets präsente Andeutung medizinischer Bitterkeit. Wasser lässt das Finish deutlich süsser & angenehmer werden; der Rauch verflüchtigt sich.

Comments

Zuerst zur Farbe: leider decken die zur Auswahl stehenden Farben nicht das gesamt Spektrum ab. Ich hatte mir beim Verkosten dieses Whiskies als Farbe "hell-bernstein mit grünlichen Rändern" notiert.


Hhhmmm, hinterlässt irgendwie einen zwiespältigen Eindruck. Ist weder Fisch noch Fleisch.

N- To say it is peaty, rather called this is like a newly opened box of floral potpourri, cardboard, dried flower and plants, sweet malt with some heat. Quick dissipated into the air and left with pool of flinty, mineral liquid.

P- Very soft, diluted honey water, green pine, peppery, a bit of smoky aniseed, rather grainy.

F- Short, return of soft burn roots, dry wood.

 — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

What that?
Tastes like boiled tang or medicine.
If this would have been my first single malt scotch, I would never ever have tried a second one!
The worst whisky I tried in my whole lifetime so far!
