    Young but very good. The mix of Bourbon and Madeira barrels is spot on.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Cold smoke combined with pepper, smoked peach and apricot pieces and iodized salt - very tasty.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Actually, a few drops of water should be added before tasting for the first time - forget it. But it's not at all tragic, because it is also very easy to drink undiluted. Creamy start, caramel, toffee, white chocolate. In addition, the pepper from the nose, with nutmeg, cloves and some aniseed. Obvious peat smoke.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Sweet fruit in the medium-long finish, smoky note that lingers for a long time. Caramel, honey, malt, aniseed.

    This sweet boy is sooo 'Islay' as a 6-year-old with a touch of Madeira can be. I love that, but he (the boy) needs a lot of air and oxidation. Half empty the bottle and let it stand in a dark and cool corner of your whisky cabinet for - well, let's say - 10 years or so. You will be surprised! THIS gets never tired.

    Blind tasting:
    The initially sweet and fruity smoker changes over time into a malt dominated by smoke and burned wood. Woodiness and pepper heat the palate and the tongue, the mouthfeel becomes noticeably creamier and tart. These smoky, wood-flavored aromas are familiar. A short time ago I received a Kilchoman sample with the same character, though I would rather tap on a port reef or a wine finish on this sample. Maximum 10 years with about 48-52% alcohol content.

    • Nose
      Dark straw with a velvety reddish glow shines in the glass. Mild and fruity smoke and peat rise during the first nosing, creamy caramel and velvety apricots blend together. A touch of vanilla dissolves from burnt wood tones, slightly fruity smoke mixes with greasy flavors. Sweet and creamy, the harmoniously harmonious aromas through the nose, slightly sour fruit flavors rise. In the fingers rubbed peppermint leaves give the sweet and smoky nose a fresh note, light maritime and mineral aromas come to bear.
    • Taste
      At the first sip, the delicate smoky nose unfolds its full aroma and powerfully hits the palate. Sweet berries and a hint of caramelized sugar are quickly replaced by a hint of pepper. Woody sharpness envelops the tongue and heats the palate, it tingles and crackles on the tip of the tongue. Gunpowder and a subtle chili-catch re-fire the keen root note. Spicy and slightly tart wood elements emerge, a hint of ash and burned wood come out. Walnuts rest on the tongue, with a cozy warmth and aromas of burned wood, the taste is transformed into the aftertaste.
    • Finish
      Lightly burned wooden elements are still resting on the tongue, fly ash covers the ground pepper sticking to the tongue, citrus fruits follow. Fresh mint dissolves from the blend of citrus fruits and burnt wood, a cold smoky note sticks to the palate. Creamy and oily, walnuts and smoked chips swim under the tongue, yellow fruits and red berries rise up.

    Honest nose, then the smoke hits you in the face, the raspberry amazes you and while you think about it, the whole thing dies away for a long time, warming, smoky and ashy.
    • Nose
      Dry, maritime, greasy fish on a stick, cold ash, mineral, apple cider barrel, seaweed, charcoal smoke (no medical peat smoke).

      Let's put it this way:
      You are currently taking a walk on the coast (nice, fresh, maritime notes with seaweed). You come across a campfire site that has recently been extinguished with cold ash, and someone has fried a stick fish on the beach. It's not raining (dry and mineral notes) but a fresh, pleasant breeze is blowing. The person who fried the fish on a stick probably doused a fruit dessert with pickled rum raisins with honey as dessert (comes very late).
    • Taste
      Immediately violent smoke in the mouth, after a short time a nice sweetness, it tingles on the tongue and there are strong raspberry aromas with honey. Smoke warms the throat and fills the whole throat.
    • Finish
      Very long, pleasantly smoky and later ashy.
