Quelle bombe de fruits exotiques/blanc et Pomelos !!

Le nez est magnifique La bouche est bien complexe avec toujours ces fruits et des epices Une finale un poil piquante , mais la retro-olfaction est superbe et fait même apparaitre du miel !

Miam ! 92/100 si j'avais pu mettre 92.5 je l'aurais mis !

Nose

Une tonne de fruits. Que d’exotisme ! Passion, mangue, goyave, papaye bien mure, grenade. De la confiture d’abricot aussi ainsi que de la cire d’abeille. Parfaitement parfait.

Taste

Bwah ! Peut être encore mieux que le nez. L’attaque est véritablement crémeuse. On retrouve tous ces fruits exotiques très mures. Des abricots secs, des bananes, des dattes, de la vanille. Et puis de légères notes boisées, toastées qui apportent un peu de structure.

Finish

Longue. Evidemment… fruitée. Peut être un tout petit peu sèche.

Comments

Enorme fruitée. S’il fallait trouver un défaut ce serait cette sécheresse en finale

Le nez est superbe, très fruité, exotique, plus acidulé que, mettons un Benriach 1976, mais tout aussi exubérant. Ananas manquant encore de maturité, pêche, vanille, cire. C'est vraiment très joli.

La bouche est un peu moins réussie à mon goût. Pas que les fruits soient absents (mandarine, papaye), mais ils sont plus en retrait, devant partager le devant de la scène avec des notes plus vertes et des épices (gingembre, poivre blanc).

La finale est assez longue, d'abord fruitée, exotique, puis se développant sur des notes végétales, le fruit passant au second plan.

Un très beau whisky, mais je ne mettrais pas les 315 euros demandés. Dans le style exotique, je préfèrerais encore rallonger un peu pour choper un Benriach 1976 sur WA qui sont, pour ceux que j'ai goûtés, un cran au-dessus de cet Irish.

Nose

Des fruit exotiques: papaye acide, mangue et ananas. Des fruits moins exotiques: agrumes et poire. 

Il y a un côté tarte au pomme (pomme/cannelle). On sent aussi des épices douces. Joliment complexe.


Taste

Le moins que l'on puisse dire c'est que c'est très intense. Le whisky sollicite littéralement toutes mes papilles.

Parfaite harmonie entre l'acidité des fruits exotiques, le sucre de cane et le gingembre frais. Il y a un côté sel de mer très agréable en fin de bouche. L'alcool est à son degré optimal.

Finish

Très longue sur les fruits sucrés et les épices douces.

Trop bon!

Farbe: Stroh­gelb
Nase: Pri­ckeln­des Salz steigt in der Nase auf, gefolgt von Vanil­le­a­ro­men, Sta­chel­bee­ren und Äpfeln. Über­wie­gend dumpf und mild, aber zwi­schen­durch auch mal ste­chend sal­zig. Frucht­gummi und Tabak …dann wie­der dumpf und mild.
Geschmack: Zarte Kon­sis­tenz mit pri­ckeln­der Mine­ra­li­tät. Eine sal­zige Würze macht sich breit – frisch und herb. Noten von Leder, Honig, faden Kräu­tern und Rha­bar­ber prä­gen das Mund­ge­fühl.
Finish: Mit­tel­lang – Harz, fri­sche Tan­nen­na­deln, Kräu­ter und würzig-aromatischer Tee. Dazu leichte, saf­tige Noten von frisch gespal­te­nem Holz.
Bemer­kung: Durch­ge­hend mit pri­ckeln­dem Salz behaf­tet und in der Nase wie ein Cha­mä­leon.
91 Punkte (Nase: 90 / Geschmack: 91 / Finish: 91)
