  1. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Originally this was a dessert for me and RvdB after the MoS tasting we had with friends. But we already had so much whisky violence that afternoon that we decided to take it home and enjoy it at another time. Well that time is now and I am very, very curious for this fellow!
    • Nose
      This is...IMPRESSIVE! My goodness this is beautiful. Sweet, Smokey and a slight salty as well. Smoked ham, dried dates, fresh tobacco, leather and cherries on the nose. There is a very delicate blanket of peatsmoke to it. Certainly not dominating but supporting for sure. This is incredibly well layered and very delicate. The balance is amazing and the complexity is impressive. A nose that does not need water at all. I don’t even dare to add water since it would possibly spoil the experience.
    • Taste
      Thick and syrupy and a bit salty. Delicate and again very well layered. This one has been bottled at it’s absolute peak. I get forest fruits but in a tea kind of way. Also coffee liquor, peach and a whiff of smoked wood.
    • Finish
      The long finish is amazingly gentle and delicate. The peat comes through the most clear in this part. Again not dominating at all but subtle and balanced. Every aspect of it fits so wel to one another. The finish keeps going up and down the throat, red and yellow fruits up, tobacco down, spices up, coffee beans down. The complexity in the finish is stunning. The smoothness as well. This is the kind of whisky one could only wish for to drink this every night.

    Great complex sherry smoker, a meaty chameleon - just my thing
    • Nose
      92 92
      Smoked meat broth, old leather, raisins, dates, dark chocolate, red grape pomace, thickened sour cherry juice, dark soy sauce, oh yeah .. also sherry
    • Taste
      92 92
      Old sweet nutty Pata Negra ham, smokehouse, blackcurrant syrup, sweetened elderberries, thick cattle consomme, ripe plums on marzipan, cough syrup - behind a pleasant dry well-integrated woodiness is noticeable
    • Finish
      91 91
      dark fruitiness, sherry, phenolic smoke - very long stay in the mouth and throat
