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.

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.
