du sel,l'iode ,la mer tout pres!!et une sensation de fumée à moitié éteinte!

Taste

le fumé ,le poivre ,puis les fruits,pas identifiables,quoique sur le fruits citron-orange surtout et confits,et la tourbe !!

Comments

Nose

Vinné tóny, mokrý štěrk, mořské řasy, dřevitost a troška rašeliny

Taste

Hned na začátku nástup ovocné sladkosti ( hlavně citrusy a pomeranče, trochu broskve), který je následován rašelinou a výrazným kořením. To vše doplňuje probleskující sůl - koření je opravdu výrazné

Finish

V dozvuku víno, mořské řasy, rašelina, spálená guma, sůl a docela dost koření - dozvuk je dlouhý

Comments

Tak tohle je hodně zajímavá záležitost, ale možná by tomu slušelo pár let navíc v sudu, je taková nevyrovnaná

Nose

Sweet with a lot of candied cherry, some raspberry and apricot. A very present, typical Bruichladdich-style maltiness. Peat, toffee and a little coffee. Perhaps a whiff of potato.

Taste

Peach, citrus, peat, orange, malt, pastry, candied cherry, strawberry and pepper.

Finish

More peat and more pepper. Malt, pastry,orange, peach and bramble.

Er riecht auf Anhieb frisch, fruchtig, aber doch auch recht rauchig, hatte ich so nicht erwartet, gefällt mir aber gut, weil man sich dann doch auf das konzentrieren muss, was da noch alles mitschwimmt. Früchte wohl, ohne dass ich sie einzeln benennen könnte. Der Rauch lässt nach, er wird etwas sprittig.

Der Antritt ist recht stark, kann sicherlich einen Tropfen Wasser vertragen. Ich schmecke jetzt Nelke, leicht Vanille, er wird etwas weicher, aber die Nelke dominiert. Nicht unbedingt mein Geschmack...

Insgesamt kein Spitzenwhisky, aber doch einer, der zwischendurch für Abwechslung sorgen kann.

Ordentliche Torfrauchnote die an ein Moor erinnert. Dahinter verbergen sich Aromen von Blumenwiese und Meeresbrise.

Taste

Die Meeresbrise hält an und wird mit einem Prickelnd auf der Zunge intensiviert.

Finish

Zunächst wieder Torfrauch der langsam immer mehr der Süße platz macht.

Comments

Ein solider rauchiger Whisky der in der Nase zwar überzeugt, aber ansonsten zu belanglos wirkt

Colour: Gold- old gold.

Nose: Soft, slightly maritime, on peat smoke, toffee, vanilla and a touch of sea spray.

Taste: Sweet, peaty, oaky, with some fruity notes (apricot and pineapple), seaweeds, vanilla and some grilled bread. The finish is medium, sweet, smooth, quite young, peaty and on pear.

General Impression: A nice light, fresh and easy drinking Bruichladdich peated at 15-20 ppm. Approximately 7 YO.

Nose: Wine and whisky…whisky and wine. Tiny hint of sulfur. Whiffs of peat and smoke on the water. Touch of bittersweet chocolate. Dried cherries.

Palate: Wine and crab apple. Sea water saltiness and a little citrus. A wine-ish familiarity…almost as if the Redder Still met the Resurrection. One thing I do often find with young wine finishes…the palate almost never lives up to the nose. Same case here, but not a bad disconnect. The ooomph of 46% is the perfect vehicle here. Fairly lingering on some nice tart clingy notes.
