Calmar
Expert Senior Calmar Tasting note
23 Aug 2017 11:26 am
Calmar gave this whisky 90 points
Color
Pale straw
Nose
Плотный, насыщенный, дым, теплые прогоревшие угли, зола, сухой торф, на заднем плане - лимонные корки, копчёности, новые кожаные изделия, не спиртуозен.


Taste
Мощная сладко-дымная атака с перцем и углем, лимон, жжёный сахар - очень приятно, крепость абсолютно не ощущается.


Finish
Сладкое с кислинкой на дымно-торфяном фоне, немного древесной горечи.


Comments
Я как-то обходил стороной данную винокурню (за исключением Октомо), поначалу, в период увлечения торфяной Айлой - из-за её неторфянистости, затем - из-за невообразимого числа релизов, разбираться в которых не было ни желания, ни финансов, но всё же решил попробовать неторфяной Айлы негоциантского розлива. Представьте моё удивление после открытия сэмпла и первого носа - из всего разнообразия релизов мне попался самый что ни на есть торфяной ( да, нужно внимательнее разглядывать этикетки). 

Ну да ближе к делу - перед нами образец прекрасного торфяного виски, мощного, молодого, глубокого и достаточно разнообразного в оттенках и тонах; питкий, абсолютно не спиртуозный, прекрасная работа с высокой крепостью - в общем всё то что мы ждём от молодой Айлы.

This malt is just a sensation! What a nose, what a body, what a beauty. It is an early Port Charlotte dressed in a Bruichladdich suite. Indeed a "Perfect Dram"!!

Tastes a bit too young but the smell is fenomenal. It`s an oily, peaty, harbour smell residu and I really like it.

Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Quite aromatic for such a high alcohol content. Sweet peat and plenty of minerals (wet sand, graphite, wet wool). Very focused on peat but luckily we also find some hay and leather. Even tiny farmy notes.

Taste

A sweet blast of peat and soot. Then the sweetness fades and the whole gets earthy, rooty and more herbal, with a soft zesty bitterness in the background. Only for peatheads.

Finish

Long, ashy and lemony with some liquorice root.

Comments

Port Charlotte with a straightforward, deep peat blast. Maybe not the best value for money compared to other independent Port Charlotte or the official releases, but certainly good quality.

It is definitely not a standard of Bruichladdich, unless you take Port Charlotte line into consideration. While blind nosed I would definitely shoot for Port Charlotte (it has this PC peat sweetness in it), while blind tasted I would additionally consider Laphroaig. Worth tasting, worth drinking, however considering the price of e.g. PC8 or similar aged Laphroaig the price is unreasonably high. Anyways, I truly enjoyed my dram.
