Cuir et tourbe au nez, qui laissent place à une chaude note fruitée, qui promet d'être sucrée. En bouche, tourbe "agressive" (mais pas au point de déséquilibrer l'ensemble), agrumes, pinède en feu ! Chaud et sucré comme promis avec quelques fruits cachés derrière. Finale salée et chaleureuse. L'ajout d'eau rend le breuvage plus accessible mais sans ni révéler d'autres arômes, ni sacrifier ce qui est déjà là. Merci à Loïc Her !

Enthousiasme 3/5

Color
White wine
Nose

kräftiger Torfrauch, Kräuter, Thymian, Zitrus, Menthol, Nähmaschinenöl. mit der Zeit süßer und öliger mit Fokus auf Zitrus

Taste

heftiger Einschlag. Rauch, Kräuter und irgendwie Ölig, Pfeffer, viel Lakritze, ordentlich bitter, Zitruszeste.

Finish

Menthol, Zitruszesten und Torf, viel Torf. Geht mit der Zeit noch mehr in Richtung Torf und Zitrus, durchaus (angenehm) bitteres Finsh.

Comments

Der Whisky gefällt mir, jung und heftig, ohne gänzlich jung zu wirken.

Nose

Wow, very young. That sweet malty peat unmistakable in a 3-5 year old Islay. late. Chalk dust. Campfire. Ash. Road tar. New leather Loads of brine and iodine. There’s a fruitiness to this but it’s overpowered by the young malty notes. Can pick up hints of lychee and kumquat.

Taste

Very ashy. Sweet peat. Malt. Porridge. Honey. Lychee. Seaweed. Iodine. Some woody tannins. Again there seems to be more going on here but the young, sweet malty peat notes kind of drown everything else out.

Finish

Bitter wood. Salt, loads of salt. Soot and pitch. Sweet malty porridge. Bitter citrus. Lingering ash and smoke.

Comments

This was a little disappointing. It was made up of some very young whiskies indeed. I don’t have an issue with that in and of itself, I actually quite like very young Islay whiskies (sucker for Kilchoman) but as is I’d have to say that this is one of the rare occasions where cask strength does more harm than good.

Nose

Smoky with sweet malt. Hints of raisins, coffee and cacao. Nice but not very complex. Although strong alcohol, a pleasant aroma.

Taste

Smoke, salt, sugar and malt. Bit by bit, the fine taste of oak appears. In addition a clear flavor of hazelnuts evolves. Further, some spices or herbs accompany the slightly bitter taste of the oak barrels.

Finish

It turns into bitter oak and dark cacao. Starting from sweet malt, this whisky ends in a dry way.

Comments

Easy drinkable, although high alcohol content. The first sip tastes different to the second and third one - this makes this whisky interesting to discover. Nevertheless, I miss complexity.
