  1. Drochaid scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A tart, strong taste in the nose. Fruity, spicy. On the palate you can still feel a sweet sweetness and fruitiness. Pleasantly warming finish.

    Langatun "Old Bear", original bottling, 40% alc.
    Distillery: Distillery Langatun
    Aging: Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine barrels
    Region: Switzerland Nose: very fruity, berry fruit, sweet cherries, bunch of grapes. The wine barrel has delivered here very strong fruit flavors. These are incorporated in malt, beech wood and a slight smoky note. The peat smoke is really very discreet and intrusive, binds and captures the fruit flavors.

    Palate: Less fruit - more smoke. Paired with a malty sweetness, like malt beer. Also, light wood flavors are again, but without being bitter or spicy.

    Finish: Medium long, the wood stays behind much longer. With malt and walnuts.

    Conclusion: Very multi-faceted, I like it.

    84/100 points (tasted 2015)
    Thanks to the distillery for the sample .
