5 Notes

Expert Senior lachaineduwhisky Tasting note

Color
Yellow gold
Nose

A la fois intense et délicat, il déploie de la vanille, du butterscotch, le tout dans une atmosphère boisée qui n'est pas sans évoquer le bourbon. Avec un peu d'eau, plus doux.

Taste

Epicé, il m'apparaît un peu déséquilibré. Même avec un peu d'eau, la balance penche trop du côté des épices.

Finish

Quelques tanins amers, cette finale est imposante mais un peu raide.

Comments

Bilan mitigé pour moi.

Enthousiasme 4/5 pour le nez, 2/5 pour le reste

Whisky n°1295

Tasting Notes by Whiskyfun.com (November 9, 2012):

Colour: straw.
Nose: we’re really walking in the forest after a heavy autumnal rain. Moss, fern, mushrooms, damp earth, wild flowers (foxgloves? Never mind…) and then these metallic notes that work so well, sometimes. Around grandpa’s old toolbox… Very different and very beautiful so far. With water: it gets even more different. More old tools, a pot of old rusty nails, gooseberries, cured ham, sparkling mineral water and just whiffs of lilies (not as heady as lilies).
Mouth (neat): superb! It’s very much alike the 1970 (ie : Mosstowie 28 yo 1970/1998, 59.6%, Cadenhead, Chairman's Stock, bourbon barrel, 198 bottles; SGP:471 - 85 points), only smoother, almost silky despite the power. Yellow chartreuse, figs, cough medicine, rose water, beeswax… In fact it’s very tertiary. Ah well… With water: maybe not the best swimmer ever, becomes a little disjointed and watery (even at +/-45% vol.) but who needs water!
Finish: medium long, fresher. Pistachio ice cream, cinnamon and touches of fresh coriander and sorrel.
Comments: lovely and very unusual (which is lovely as such). It’s got something of some very old Irish, in a way.
SGP:451 - 88 points.

I have never tried such a single cask of mosstowie, like that you go into a forest, vanilla, fresh fragrance of the soil, when you lose your way, when suddenly a suckling pig in front of you, so amazing, and without a doubt my favorite, even better than BRORA 30 2002 
tonight,the best of all

Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Le nez est riche, original. Chaque note de la palette aromatique est à son apogée et à aucun moment on ne sent de fléchissement. Ce Mosstowie est à la fois profondément ancré dans le sol et d"une épure magnifique. Printanier et floral à souhait il évoque une corne d"abondance. Ses fruits sont juteux et exotiques (banane mûre). Une magnifique note d"anis étoilée vient couronner le tout. Le verre vide respire d"agréables notes de barba-papa.

Taste

Ne le cédant en rien au nez, la bouche ajoute encore un supplément d"ame. Spirituelle, elle diffuse des notes d"encens, de cuir et de cire. Généreuse, elle offre des fruits mûrs, des épices nobles et des fleurs capiteuses. Avec beaucoup de pureté, elle va à l"essentiel. Equilibre, fraicheur, précision, élégance sont quelques mots lâchés.

Finish

Longue, tendre. Avec toujours autant de délicatesse et d"originalité herbacée, ses tonalités aquatiques (nénuphar) sont une source perpétuelle d"enchantement. La classe naturelle de cette version éclate au grand jour.

Comments

Ces notes de LMDW reflètent parfaitement l"impression laissée par ce single malt lors de sa découverte au Whisky Live de Paris 2012. Merci Jean-Marc !

Commentaires de LMDW :

De 1964 à 1981, la distillerie Miltonduff produisait un second single malt baptisé Mosstowie, rarement embouteillé. Ce 1973 a de quoi soulever les passions et faire naître des vocations tant son fruité exotique, sa fraîcheur anisée et sa bouche généreuse se sont mis au diapason.
