Voor het geld zeker een mooie whisky! redelijk lange afdronk en peaty is zeker overheersend. Wel duidelijk een wat jongere whisky waardoor je de alcohol meer proeft. desalniettemin, prijs/kwaliteit super!

N: Another young peat blend, malty, oily and erm - light. Theres no monster here with a modest ppm of 12 [from Ardmore]

T: Much more confident arrival than the peated 'Glasgow blend' with more of an intense concentration seeping into the palate.

F: Peat resides with young [but tamed] spirit into a grain finish.

C: Very similar to the Glasgow blend but with a tad more depth, delivery and mouthfeel.


Scores a C+

Nez tourbe, terre, légère note vanillée. Bouche tourbe, âcreté, soufre. Légèrement salin. Assez unidimensionnel, moins bon que le Laphroaig 10.

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Sec, sur le citron, un peu de tourbe, de l'iode, des plantes et de la terre. Sensation de jeune islay.

Taste

Plutôt sucré, légèrement crémeux, sur le sirop pour la toux, les plantes.

Finish

Trop sucré, encore ce sirop pour la toux, la terre.

Comments

Très facile à boire, doux, avec une bonne longueur.  Mais ce n'est pas un monstre de tourbe.

Rough with a lot of bitter overtones on the palate, truly a monster. You have to love him or you can let`em stay. A world apart, with plenty of salty peat smoke. Bitterly pungent and strong. A dram, not for all cases.
