Très léger et délicat, avec du bois et un peu de caramel. Je perçois des fruits, mais je peine à les identifier. Les arômes sont peu prononcés, la finesse est de mise. Mais surprise, avec le temps, ces senteurs d'évanouissent peu à peu. En bouche, fin mais musclé, avec des fruits un peu plus appuyés (cerise?). Un peu raide en avalant. Avec de l'eau, le nez reste peu actif. Je détecte une saveur étrange d'oeuf. (Oeuf frais s'entend) En bouche, on passe d'une texture fine à plus crémeuse, mais le tout est assez fade. La finale, épicée, brûle encore, même avec de l'eau. Selon les sources, j'ai lu First Fill Bourbon ou Refill Bourbon (je penche pour Refill vu la faiblesse des arômes !) suivi de Sherry Oak (où ça ?) et Swedish Oak (ah bon). Ils ont dû faire une faute d'orthographe dans le nom, c'est plutôt du Brusk Whisky !

Enthousiasme 2/5

A batch from 2013.

  • N: Fruity [wheat/corn-like] cereal bar whisky with a putty=clay-like copper edge, a touch of ‘lemon-fresh’ washing detergent and a hazy pong gathering overhead. The pine needles, pears & pineapples are far lower in the mix compared to even earlier batches.
  • T: With quite a youthful zing at 41.4%. we’ve a sour corn-like opening with a dryish fruit-tannic barley-cream waxy-corn/soft bourbon development. Edgy but fairly likeable with water fluffing up the whole presentation. Distillate faithful, the [bourbon] casks add character whilst playing the supportive role.
  • F: Short with some sourness, water brings curry aromatic spice notes. Lemon detergent lingers with an underlying sour vegetal lactose decay note.
  • C: I’m very font of these early batches. Despite a few wavering batches thereafter I find them competent and characterful.

Scores a C[+]

The influence of the bourbon comes through, but a slightly chemical taste soon takes over.  Not a personal favorite.

Banane! Jede Menge Banane. Und dann Zitrusfrucht - frisch und süß. Aber auch sofort helle Eiche, fast ein bisschen wie bei einem Bourbon. 

Taste

Frisch und fruchtig. Auch die Banane ist wieder da, aber dutlich reduzierter als in der Nase. Eine ganz leichte Würze. In Summe aber sehr mild und glatt. Für meinen Geschmack fast ein bisschen dünn.

Finish

Kurz. Es bleibt Fruchtigkeit zurück.

Made from first-fill bourbon casks. Age around 6.5 years.

  • N: Bready/husky with a touch of honeyed white wine. Less pears & pineapples than in previous batches though more ripe apple developing along with vanilla citrus. Also of note is a light waxy=oily=fattiness.
  • T: Dry mashy & honeyed>sugary style, the spirit well softened by the casks. Reminds me of Benromach 10 somewhat though the aforementioned Speysider has a definitive edge over this Bruks on detail and prominence.
  • F: Short, clean, soft.
  • C: A good batch though i personally prefer the pear drop & pine needle batches.

mild, bodenständig, Honig, Vanille, Getreide, ein leicht fruchtiger Anflug (süße Birne, Banane), ein Hauch weißer Pfeffer

Taste

Vanille, Crème brûlée, Getreide, dann Limettenbitterkeit, Pfeffer

Finish

mittellang, Limette, Pfeffer, Eiche

Comments

Könnte auch als Schotte durchgehen, recht süffig und durchaus einsteigertauglich, für ~37€ kein Schnäppchen, aber auch nicht masslos Exoten-überteuert.
