Comments

An Intensität des Abgangs zwar klar dem Tomatin 14 überlegen, aber nicht wirklich mein Ding. Die sauren Weinnoten und der Rauch passen nicht gut zusammen, finde ich. Unrund, aufgesetzte Port-Noten, zu bitter; die DE ist Meilen besser. Ich wünschte, der Abgang wäre kürzer... der wird immer ekliger. Not my cup of malt.

Deep copper
Nose

Rauchiges, würziges Aroma. Pfeffer, Muskat. Blutorangen, Ananas.


Taste

Stark, pfeffrig. Die Frucht zeigt sich erst nach einigen Sekunden. Der Rauch ist zuerst da. Muskat. Im Nachschmecken wird es süßer und saftiger. rauchige Orange. Hawai-Aromen (Ananas, Speck).


Finish

Lang, warm, würzig und saftig.


Comments

Interessant und lecker. Etwas zu aggressiv am Gaumen.

Color
Burnished
Nose

Dried goji berries and dates, smoked dried mango, a bit of white sugar, soft peat smokiness, and sweet citrus. Honey and bakkwa (dried sweet pork) show up after about 10 minutes. 

Taste

Malt and dried smoked dates, salted smoked dried fish, and floral pepper. 

Finish

Oak and wine tannins and faint smoked honey.

Comments

The same mouth-feel as the 10 year old with a similar length of form. It's an enjoyable whisky that offers a unique change from the 10. It loses some of the complexity but offers a fruitier taste.

[July, 2013]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 38 Euro in May, 2013.

[August, 2014]  Together with friends I emptied another bottle that I bought for 41,50 Euro in October, 2013.

[November, 2014]  Together with friends I emptied another bottle that I bought for 40,50 Euro in July, 2014.

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5 all times.  My notes state a the port finish is a great combo with the peaty Talisker profile...

There is no accounting for taste...
