  2. Hemdl scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    No whisky for everyone. A young and wild bottling, which is likely to find its fans among lovers of smoke, peat and sea salt. Strong, direct and without a lot of bells and whistles.
    • Nose
      Smoke and smoked bacon dominate, especially the latter. No alcoholic note, which is quite surprising for me.
    • Taste
      Strong onset on the tongue, probably due to the high alcohol content. Lots of salt, dry smoke and again the smoked bacon.
      With a bit of water much calmer and slightly oily. Now comes the smoked bacon even more apparent, but also a slightly sweet note.
    • Finish
      Keeping a long story short. The alcohol unfolds its full strength again, the smoke dominates and lingers a bit.

    Colour:

    Bright white wine, a few irregular thick legs.

    Nose:

    Dry smoke, not overwhelmed, surprisingly little alcoholic, some toffee, ham from the smokehouse also fits.

    Taste:

    Peat, smoke, mineral, fresh, even here surprise little alcoholic approach, with water a little more complacent and oily.

    finish:

    A short middle-length.

    Conclusion:

    For a 7yo from the Bourbon Hogshead a really nice bottling.
