Elegant fruity smokes, quite identical to current releases, perhaps with a bit more body and lesser sweet. Pleasantly ashy.

Nose

Sweet peat, tar, brine old leather, some smoke and tobacco.

Taste
Very smooth and warming , the peat is there but complimented beautifully by the sherry. I get some coffee cake, blackberry chocolate creams, The longer you leave it in the glass the more each mouthful tastes of peat, it just keeps going but never swamps the sherry.

Finish

Long, smooth but a sherbet peaty fizz right at the end.

Comments

These older White Horse Bottlings are awesome, I will be sorry to see this bottle finished. Get some of this if you can, an absolute belter of a whisky.

Colour: Golden

Nose: Oily peat, sea air, hint of sweet caramel

Palate: Initial sweetness yields to a building intensity of rich peaty nectar

Finish: Refreshing balance of spice and peat smoke, ends with a generous amount of barley

Color
Amontillad
Nose

süßer kräftiger Rauch, etwas phenolisch, Spur von Kräuterlikör mit einem Schuss Hustensaft, Seetang und Strand, entwickelt sich zu einem leicht salzigen Schinken der über süßem Holz geräuchert wurde

Taste

kräftig, voll, rund, geschmeidige weiche Öligkeit, süß mit leichter Würze, Rauch, erdig/torfig

Finish

lang, süß, altes Leder, etwas salzig mit Zartbitterschokolade

Comments

Ein fantastischer Whisky, der von Anfang an Lust auf mehr macht. Hab ich immer wieder gern nach dem grillen im Glas. Dieser Whisky ist ein Torfmonster, der viel mehr liefert als nur Torf und "Gestank". Er ist schön Facettenreich und Charakterstark mit einem guten PLV. Muss man probiert haben, außen man kann mit Rauch nichts anfangen, dann Hände davon lassen.
