Expert Senior Greenkeeper Note

Greenkeeper gave this whisky 74 points

A dram that never gets boring.
For that price range between 27 and 35 Euro it's a killer.
Nosing and tasting seems to me like a perfect conjunction of classic highland and classic campbeltown style with a bit of Brora heritage.Spices could be less sharp and the alcohol could be better integrated.


....got a whip in my hand, Baby...and a girl or a husky at the leathers end........ it's alright............ (BÖC)

Expert Senior Toffie76 Tasting note

Pale gold
Nose

Un nez fruité-marin-iodé . Complexe, agréable , un rien poivré, les fruits sont bien présents. L'ensemble bien équilibré . Un soupçon de fumée et la tourbe bien que discrète est juste évoquée . 

Taste

Une attaque franche , fruitée , une belle rondeur, des épices , du sel , iode, on retrouve la fumée . Puis un beau festival de céréales et douceur maltée . S'assèche un peu . Belle longueur. 

Finish

Une peu astringent, mais loin d'être désagréable, on poursuit dans un délicat exercice d'équilibre entre les épices et les sucres. Bref, un whisky complexe , toujours plaisant et intéressant vu ses multiples facettes

Comments

Voilà un whisky largement distribué à un prix plus que raisonnable au vu de ses qualités. Vivement recommandé .... Seule ombre au tableau, l'ajout de caramel. Mais franchement, c'est vraiment pas important .

Cela fait longtemps que je goûte de ce whisky facile et agréable, sans l'avoir noté. Il a fallu que je me mette à la dégustation chez les paternels pour que ma mère mette le verre à la vaisselle. "Mais il n'y avait rien dans ce verre!" "si..."


Nez très fruité, très frais. Beaucoup de pomme verte, un peu de jus de citron. L'ensemble est équilibré. 
Taste

Très douce, fluide, sucrée. Des notes de caramel, de cassonade et une belle corbeille de fruits (pomme, mirabelle notamment). 

Finish

Très fraîche et longue sur la pomme avec des notes boisées et vanillées. 

Comments

Bon produit, simple et bien réalisé. Un autre registre de la pomme fraîche (rien à voir avec le singleton 12), fraîche et concentrée.
