Calmar
Expert Senior Calmar Tasting note
11 Oct 2017 11:03 am
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.

Dram Dracula
Expert Senior Dram Dracula Note

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.
