Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Moyennement fumé et bien pâtissier dès le départ. Une note minérale (ardoise). Très généreux. La dualité gourmandise/minéralité me rappelle Kilkerran. Plus malté que gourmand à la réflexion. Fruits discrets.

Taste

Intense, onctueux, bien vif et épicé, mais aussi tourbé, juteux et plutôt gourmand.

Finish

La tourbe se fait plus discrète, mais reste en arrière-goût un long moment.

Comments

Très joli ! 

Enthousiasme 4/5

Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Very smokey, as expected. But the coastal, briny character you would not necessarily expect from caol ila. Oysters, seaweed. But also hard candy, powdered sugar and a dusty, ashy note next to lime and green apples.

Taste

Very heavy arrival, full of power. Fairly sweet, with dry aromas of powder sugar, chalk and ash. Develops into a real nicely balanced coastal whisky with kippers, brine and fresh sea air. I also notice some fudge and caramel notes and even licorice (specifically: "trekdrop" in Dutch). Strange but so nice!

Finish

Typical dry and ashy caol ila finish. Long, lovely.

Comments

As far as peatmonsters go, this is as good as it gets. Great balance, very good development and finish.


Thanks to Hvdree for the sample!

NOTE DE DÉGUSTATION (LMDW) :

  • Couleur : jaune citron.
  • Nez : ample, pulpeux. Particulièrement marin, il est marqué par le poisson fumé, l"huile de foie de morue et par les embruns. Du sel arrive ensuite par rafales avant que la tourbe ne prenne les choses en main. Des agrumes confits, des fleurs blanches et quelques fruits mûrs parviennent finalement à se frayer un chemin à travers joncs et roseaux. A noter, l"apparition d"une note médicinale (baume).
  • Bouche : onctueuse, huileuse. Son attaque est particulièrement fruitée (pomme, ananas). Très vite cependant, la tourbe reprend droit de cité. Elle est même inhabituellement intense pour un Caol Ila qui plus est, de cet âge. Les amateurs de sensations fortes ne s"en plaindront pas. De plus en plus saline, elle nous emmène en bord de mer respirer l"iode à pleins poumons. Le poisson fumé est plus que jamais présent.
  • Finale : longue, vivifiante. C"est toutes voiles dehors qu"elle assume son envie de grand large. La tourbe est toujours aussi intensément présente. Elle revêt toutefois des tonalités plus herbacées et cendrées. En rétro olfaction, des fruits frais (melon jaune) et des agrumes (pamplemousse) précèdent une fumée abondante.
