Très plaisant au nez : fruits exotiques, menthe…Il se réchauffe sur le malt. Et il y a aussi un peu de tourbe. En bouche, malt et "malt vert" (l'image mentale, pas la définition biologique). Finale fruitée du plus bel effet. Un irish qui lorgne du côté de Littlemill, donc.

Enthousiasme 4/5

Nose

Plutôt muet. Besoin de temps pour s’ouvrir. Un peu d’exotisme : bananes vertes et mures, et quelques petits fruits rouges (fraises des bois ? framboises ? je ne sais pas) et bourgeons de cassis. J’ai l’impression qu’il faut tout de même aller le chercher ce nez car ce n’est définitivement pas puissant. Avec plus de temps, une très légère fumée et les fruits se font plus intenses. Devient intéressant.

Taste

Dans la continuité avec ces fruits rouges : cassis, fraises. Un peu de papaye. Pas mal de peps.

Finish

Longue, plus liquoreuse. Une très légère fumée sèche comme dans certains Yoichi.

Comments

J’ai un peu l’impression d’être passé à côté. Intéressant et plaisant mais pas totalement enthousiasmé. A revoir si je croise de nouveau sa route

From Whiskyfun:

St. Beccan’s Dram 22 yo 1991/2013 (55.3%, The Stillman’s, single pot still, bourbon wood, 210 bottles) Five stars The Stillman’s is an excellent little Swiss bottler. Let’s see if we can guess what this is… Colour: straw. Nose: reeks of Redbreast if you ask me, but it’s a little less rounded and polished than Midleton’s ‘usual’ output. Actually, there are more fresh fruits, and less fatty/oily parts. Tangerines, oranges, Williams pears… Some parts remind me of the Whisky Fair’s 1991 as well. These Irishes can lose you, I tell you! Mouth: absolutely terrific! Mangos, Juicyfruits, cassata ice cream, passion fruits, raspberries, mint, chives, aniseed, liquorice… This is simply superb! What it exactly is, I don’t know, but it’s a brilliant Irish. One of the best I’ve ever tried, in truth. Finish: long, fresh, superbly ‘nervous’ and citrusy, ultra-clean, sauvignony (!) Comments: I find this one absolutely exceptional. Very well selected, Stillman! I even forgot to try it with water… SGP:761 - 90 points.

The bottler says it's a Cooley.
