Dans l'ordre d'apparition:

1. sherry

2. trace d'iode

3. banane et cacao

Taste

sel, tourbe assez présente, force et caractère

Finish

finale persistante

Comments

 Un nez proche de son voisin d'en face (Isle of Jura) intéressant mais pas extraordinaire.

Un corps et une finale qui étonnent par leur puissance: proche des voisins du Sud de l'île.

Un whisky qui cache bien son jeu, avec un nez tout en finesse mais un corps tout en muscle. Excellent.

After more than half a year from bottle opening and half the bottle emptying, now finally I can fully comprehend and confirm the notes of Marko - err except for the shisha tabac ;-)
Maybe the strong sulfuric note caused some irritation to me, maybe  a bigger glas like the now used Spiegelau premium snifter and the adequate amount of water was beneficial.
88/89 pts.

Nose

dunkle Schokolade, schwarzer Johannisbeersaft, aber zuviel Volt, der braucht etwas Wasser... Schokolade, Kirschen, Pfirsichkompott, Shisha-Tabak... eine Brise Kuhstall

Taste

dunkle Schokolade, eine trocken-rauchige Note, Hustensaft, etwas schwarze Johannisbeere/Brombeere (aber nicht frisch, geht eher so in die-Likör-Richtung), Tabak

Finish

lang, bittersüß, etwas aschig, Pfeffer

Comments

Prima Whisky, erfüllt genau, was ich bei Brennerei/Alter/Fass/Stärke erwartet habe, für Refill ist der Sherry-Einfluss sogar stärker, als ich gedacht hätte.
