well balanced, sweet and malty whisky! vanilla and oaky spices, even a little peppery. grassy. Really well balanced. found this one in may 2017 for € 45,- which i consider a quite reasonable price for this fine bottle

Nose

D'abord minéral, évoquant l'ardoise, assez direct, il donne ensuite du malt, une tourbe fermière et des pommes granny smith. Plus tard, le fût de bourbon prend l'ascendant.

Taste

Bien plus doux que l'annonce le nez (miel, vanille...), il a une belle texture, mais reste néanmoins un peu anguleux - signe de jeunesse.

Finish

Plutôt délicate et fruitée, belle persistance sur les épices douces.

Comments

Un bon WIP, mais pas le meilleur.

Enthousiasme 3/5

Nose

The smokiness faintly lingers around, green apple, liquorice and salmiak, vanilla, plaster, some honey, lemon and lemongrass. Opens up nicely.

Taste

Smoky lemon, honey, a distinctive combination of vanilla and mild smoke. Some syrupy notes with a savoury salmiak. Rather pungent and bitterish.

Finish

Middle-long, pleasantly malty, faintly smoky.

Comments

A quite nice one though not really many-faceted. It is okay but the wonders Serge found in this are obviously unobtainable to my senses. Probably the bitterness is too hard to handle for me..

Goûté blind.

Nez bois, vanille, pomme.

Fait un peu jeune en bouche, l’alcool est assez présent avec une amertume marquée.

Finale de longueur moyenne.

Diesen Kilkerran wollte ich, weil ich schon ein paar kenne und toll fand. Da "wächst" ein gute Destille heran. Und auch dieser enttäuscht nicht - fängt etwas zitronig an, dann schön knusprig, ledrig, würzige Eiche. Und ich finde, gerade diese Abfüllung kann die "Verwandtschaft" zu Springbank/Longrow nicht verbergen, da schwingt diese muffig-warme, moosig-pilzige Note mit, wenn ich mir das nicht nur einbilde. Mag ich.

Nose

Süßer Rauch, helle Früchte, aber keine Zitrone. Der Rauch ist eher zurückhaltend, aber präsent. Vanille und Karamell ist auch da. Ich tippe auf jeden Fall Ex Bourbon-Fass und Trinkstärke. Aber beim Alkohol liege ich ziemlich oft daneben.

Taste

der Antritt ist kräftig, vielleicht hat er ja doch mehr Prozente. Süße helle Früchte, eventuell etwas Banane, mittlerer Rauch, Eiche. Also der Geschmack ist sehr gefällig, ein solider Raucher.

Finish

mittellang und bittersüß

Comments

Wie gesagt: ein solider Raucher mit 46 - 50% aus dem Ex-Bourbon Fass, Alter schätze ich auf 12 - 15 Jahre, vom Rauch her würde ich sagen Bowmore.
