    Cooley 21 yo 1992/2013 (56.3%, Cadenhead, World Whiskies, bourbon barrel, 210 bottles)  Another new Cadenhead from summer this year. We're having a lot of Cadenhead these days but it's true that they fired earlier than others with their new bottlings. That was smart! Colour: straw. Nose: this one sleeps a bit after the younger ones, but maybe that's the higher strength. Quite some mash though, mashed potatoes, then more earth and humus, which I always like when it's not plain dirty. Oh and a little gentian. With water: oh, some kind of smoked pears now! Or strawberries? It's a great nose. Mouth (neat): a very unusual one, with a combination of flavours that's nowhere else to be seen in my experience. It's actually a triplet of bitter herbs, ashy smoke and candied oranges and kumquats. Quite a cocktail! But it's also very strong, water is needed. With water: oh yes! What's starting to happen here is the kind of 'transmutation of peat' that's also to be observed in old Laphroaigs or Bowmores. So less straight smoke and more tropical and citric fruits, maracuja, mangos, lemon, tangerines... Perfect! Finish: long, citrusy, with also touches of waxes and oils. How could we be against that? Comments: at 25 yo these casks will be stellar. They're already quite stellar, in fact.SGP:457 - 90 points.
