Expert Senior Calmar Tasting note

Calmar gave this whisky 95 points
Color
Amber
Nose

Открытый, свежий, терпкий, свежеоструганная дубовая доска, мокрая кожа, скотный двор, лимонная цедра, медово-цветочные нотки, мокрый точильный камень, сгоревшие бенгальские огни, сгоревшая сера на спичках, немного зелени, огурцы, апельсиновые цукаты, полевые цветы, полынь.

Taste

Мощный, плотный, терпкий дуб, корка грейпфрута, красный перец, сливочные нотки - варёная сгущёнка, изюм, сухофрукты, лимонная цедра, леденцы монпансье, маслянистость, сливочный крем, очень насыщенно и разнообразно, при всём том очень свежо и даже брутально, что-ли.

Finish

Мягкое, согревающее, маслянистое, чуть вяжущий дуб, корка апельсина, цедра грейпфрута, немного молодой коры, сливки, масляный крем, мята, немного эвкалипта - прекрасно и продолжительно.

Comments

 Фантастический молт, глубина и впечатляющее разнообразие во всех составляющих, комплексность, идеальный баланс, ощущение возраста и одновременно свежесть, некая неискоренённая ершистость; не хватает слов описать великолепие сие, поэтому перейду к цифрам.

Nose

Blindtasting:


eine angenehme lockende Süße, etwas Wachs und getrocknete Orangenschale, später eher frisch geschälte Mandarinenschale, grüner Tee, Süßgras, etwas Geranienlaub, Rosenblüten und Jasminblüten, alles wird umspielt von zarten Eichennoten die kultiviert und gealtert pulsierend daherkommen - so in Bewegung, dass sie auch mal komplett die Bühne frei machen für die anderen Aromen und dann wieder da sind - etwas Schokolade und Süßholz im Gepäck. Insgesamt dominieren Blüten, Wachs und Orangentöne - die Nase wirkt edel, komplex und klar

Wasser verträgt die Nase nicht ganz so gut.

Taste

auch mit etwas Wasser ein kräftiger Antritt, der nächste Schluck muss kleiner sein, schön süß mit feiner zarter Säure, stark mundwässernd, Panna Cotta, Kokoscreme mit Rosenwasser, Pfeffer, Eichenwürze, frisch gesägte Bretter, Wachs, Möbelpolitur, Orange - dann zunehmend trockener im Mund, schwarzer Tee mit Honig, Blütennektar und Trockenfrüchte - die Süße ist so toll mit den Aromen verwoben - ich denke kurz an Rauch, dann an leichten Schwefel(Brühe aber ganz zart wie ein Nebel) oder Sellerie - sehr spannend und sehr lange "kaubar"

Finish

ein feines Prickeln bleibt auf der Zunge, ein zarter Wachsfilm, Orangen- und Minzöl, ab und zu blitzt eine Bitternote auf, mal eher Walnusschale - dann wieder dunkle Schokolade - tendenziell von warm zu kalt - bis nur noch Minze, roter Pfeffer und etwas Wachs bleiben  

Comments

Trifft ziemlich genau meinen Nerv - lecker - besonders - Retrotyle, schmeckt sicher nicht jedem - er ist sehr komplex in einem eher eingeschränkten- speziellen Bereich. Für mich feinster 70/80er Jahre Style mit wahrscheinlich 25yo++ refill Sherry, Bourbon oder ein Vatting aus beidem

Erinnert mich an den Bunna 1987 vom Maltman WID:79349, diesen Imperial 1995 WID:66592 und an den Glen Ord 25 SR 1978/2004 - aber auch an einen Craigellachie oder Aultmore muss ich denken.

Eine dezente Auflösung würde ich begrüßen(ggf kleiner Vorsprung) - heute - nach 1cl bekommt er 93,92,91 für N,T,F - würde ich mir je nach Preis wohl direkt kaufen - aber ich kaufe ja nix mehr :smile: Vielen Dank für den klasse Dram WB70

Dram Dracula gave this whisky 92 points

After trying a sample, I quickly went out and got a bottle... and convinced two of my other friends to get the same bottle. Just wanted to spread the joy around, and just in case I finish my bottle, I can just go over to their place and enjoy theirs. Very complex and enjoyable, from the nose to the finish. I'm usually slightly doubtful regarding these high scores on whiskybase for expensive official bottlings from extinct distilleries because I think sometimes these scores are inflated, but the score for this one is right on.

Stunningly complex nose that needed a couple of drops of water to reveal its full glory. Very fruity (poached pears, strawberries and ripe apples) with rich oak, fresh barley, honey fudge and vanilla supporting things beautifully. Lovely, dark delivery on the palate, with caramelised sugars again supporting the fruity and woody notes. A creamy transition then leads on to a remarkably poised finish, with the fresh barley coming back to the fore. A really great dram.

Connoisseur jazzpianofingers Note
17 Oct 2015 2:53 pm

The ‘Gone but not forgotten’ masterclass led by Colin Dunn at the Whisky Exchange show 2015 presented six drams, each from a lost distillery. They were: Glenesk ’69; Millburn ’75; St Magdalene ’78; Brora 9th release; Convalmore ’77 and lastly a Glenury ’70.



N:  Another Clynelish’esque nose. with its sweet, sherried pancakes and sweet clotted/sour cream.


T: Cautious beginning with an alarming bitter pinch - in a ‘wake up, slap in the face’ way. Big oils lead to chocolate with some dry harshness, but water is needed to sort that out. Once diluted, the whole expression then cakes the palate. Its edgy and brash, but ‘bring it on’ i say.


F: Drying with a chocolate maltiness and a wood-soft blanket, Its one enormous dram once it gets going.


C: Its a loud one, a Paul Weller whisky perhaps? Hell yeah! A standout whisky that can’t be ignored. Many peoples favourite of the six.
