If you like it peaty and farmy, this one’s for you. But careful: that malt’s not for sissies!Tasted blind for whisky-distilleries.info WDTS:http://www.whisky-distilleries.info/WhiskyWDTS/index_EN.shtml
Very nice peat, farmy and bursting with sun fruits like I enjoy it. Stable, manure, oranges, lemons and lemon balm. Dusty and dirty. Freshly sheared sheep. Punchy, but not burning. I love it. Did they unearth another of these stunning Ardmore 1992 for us, once again?
Much drier than expected. Else, all the ingredients of a fine farmy peaty malt are here. Ashes, soot, game, and lots of liquorice.
More coal now, and a hint of bitterness, like in a very strong tea.
Yet another Bowmore. But then, can you ever have enough? Bow more, I say.
The nose transports you to the rocky coast of <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Islay with its typical seaweed and soft, sweet peat. It smells rather fatty. Farmer butter. Citrus, banana and toffee make it nicely sweet. After a while, I even get canned sardines. Feisty.
The attack is spicy and grassy. The peat speaks louder now, but it is the salt that makes my mouth water. Some drying oak that makes it nicely bitter. Wonderful and creamy caramel. Good balance.
The finish lingers on sea salt and pepper. At the end, your mouth is dry.
