Nose

ne sehr schöne fruchtige Nase - helle Früchte, Trauben, leicht Zitrus - mit für mich doch überraschend wenig Rauch, sehr angenehm

Taste

im Mund dann doch ne schöne Rauchnote, nichts krasses sondern schön eingebunden in der Süße, leichte Holznoten

Finish

im Abgang doch überraschen lang im dezenten Rauch. Fazit, das ist ein schöner Einsteiger in die Welt der Raucher


Comments

Fazit, das ist ein schöner Einsteiger in die Welt der Raucher, mir gefällt er, nicht mehr - nicht weniger

Nose

Sehr zurückhaltend, man hat sehr feine und entfernte leichte Meeresnoten zusammen mit einem schon lange erloschenen Lagerfeuer, aber weit entfernt von richtigen smoky Schotten, erinnert mich gerade durch das sehr dezente und die leichten Zitrusnoten dabei sehr an Caol Ila, auch die weißen Trauben sind da, schön aber zu schwach

Taste

Auch hier erstmal ein schwachbrüstiger Antritt, man hat eigtl. das gleiche wie in der Nase, zunächst hier die Zitrussäure, etwas grüner Apfel, dann etwas Kaminruß und Herbstlaub, bittere, junge Eiche ist ganz dezent im Hintergrund

Finish

Der Rauch und Ruß überlagert selbst in seiner feineren Form den Rest hier, etwas grüner Apfel mit bitterer Schale dabei, kurz

Comments

Joa, war eher ein schwacher Antritt, sicherlich etwas für absolute Einsteiger im Peated-Genre, schade da die einzelnen Noten ganz nett sind.

Andytka3 gave this whisky 79 points

Nose:- Interestingly complex, but mild and gentle. Pleasant floral notes like strolling thru an orchid farm. A splash of water will bring you the lychee and pineapple aroma (Yes, like Sauvignon Blanc). Light trace of peat.

Palate:- Light, juicy sweet and malty. Lightly peat like burn wood, and crisp at the back.

Finish:- Citrus and light caramel finish. Medium length.

— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

Kaum Rauch, recht mild, ganz anders als die meisten Raucher, aromatisch, würzig-süß, sehr nette Abwechslung.
