Comments

Самогонный молт, молод и не до конца сформирован, зато видно откуда ноги растут, так сказать, ...когда б вы знали из какого сора растут они не ведая стыда... напомнил мне Гленглассо Эволюшн - тот же стиль, только значительно качественней;

n: if you have had bere barley whisky before you really can recognize its provenance.
    this special, very old sort of barley always smells like oolong tea for me.
    with hints of peaches like the oolong. it´ s mighty fruity but others may interpret
    this differently, don´t know. other than that it has that maritime , salty character
    with sea air and iodine that we know from other laddies. very fresh nose.
t:  what an attack, and I don´t mean the alcohol. this is bursting with flavours.
    mostly this peach fruitiness, a little oak and some salt in the aftertase.
    very simple whisky but lovely in my opinion. straightforward and unique.
f:  long and crisp. very fresh and clean
comments: totally underrated in my opinion but I can understand that not
                  everybody likes that style. I will lift my mark to 89/100

Ich rieche Eiche, Frucht, Alkohol, ich schmecke einen typische Bruichladdich, aber stark, Trauben kommen, Vanille, ich gebe einen Tropfen Wasser hinzu, er wird noch fruchtiger, aber nicht süss, die Eiche bleibt dominant, der Duft bleibt angenehm, Honig kommt hinzu. Fazit, ein toller Malt ohne Schnickschnack

“Bere gives you a yield that’s less than the half of that of classic barley”. Serge Valentin


N: Delicate, savoury/sweet and very clean grassy. buttery, doughy, oatmeal cereal notes. Opening up, it develops on rubbery malt-toffee and sweet ‘Barley Cup’ with pear & apple snow, rose water and heather, but its the crops that have the limelight here.


T: Savoury-sweet again, developing on [slightly astringent/zesty] green-grain lines. After the mild but peppery spirit subsides on arrival, the oak comes forth to steady things. After the oak shift, theres a mild, bitter-green edge running throughout with a dry, waxy mouthfeel on grain, new oak and malty fudge. With water -  hints of fruits on the arrival, but certainly heathery, fennel and cumin seeds going into the finish. Later on im getting orange squash and pear drops on arrival [neat]. Plenty of [new] oak on display to support the barley spirit, thats for sure. Long development


F: Two or three phases here. Firstly theres the mild, grassy, cereal finish which is clean to the last - and rather green, is that from grain or cask, or both? Then theres the drying remnants of cereal [and occasionally the orange squash], alongside buttery grasses [lightly toasted heather]. Dare i mention a Karuizawa like finish at the death? - with remnants of flint, mineral and gunpowder. There, i did it.


C: Its one of those young but mature whiskies, successful in the main from good [young] spirit and plenty of first fill casks in the mix. Almost flawless whisky aside from that green astringency that bullies the palate somewhat. Otherwise, wow - much to applaud here.
