    # Blind tasting
    Smoke? Not realized. The nose has something, the rest is rather difficult. But exciting anyway.
    • Nose
      Sweet, gummy, orange peel, Campari, very idiosyncratic and completely unknown to me. I've never smelt anything like that with whiskey.
    • Taste
      bitter, sixty, astringent, Orangenschale in Alkohol
    • Finish
      tart, citrus zest (actually only the bitter white), a bit tingling.

    A fascinating nose, the taste is a bit thin, the barrel strengths are certainly superior here. Interesting he always remains, Personally, I like this strange and somewhat unbalanced flavor game, something different, very tasty. That's fun!
    • Nose
      First, a fascinating smoky note, extremely strong, but unlike anything known, there are yellow fruits. The aroma changes quickly, the smoke goes down and the fruits are now accompanied by malt and caramel. In fact, on warming, cherry notes also appear. The smoke remains exciting, very pleasant, very slightly peaty and strong after an open fire, also slightly reminiscent of the Alriks. Slightly sour notes, very pleasant though. Lays down very hard on the nose. Dark chocolate, tobacco and nougat are found late.
    • Taste
      At first very mild onset, a slight Pfefffrigkeit comes on, mint or eucalyptus and red fruits, especially cherries and mild honey sweetness accompany the taste.
    • Finish
      In the finish first peppery, then very sweet and fruity notes remain for a long time, before a slight, sweet-nutty occupancy of the oral cavity remains, interestingly no smoke.

    WE TAKE THREE FRACTIONS OF MALTED BARLEY, EACH SMOKED BY A DIFFERENT FUEL – CHERRY WOOD, PEAT, AND BEECHWOOD – TO CRAFT THIS DEEPLY COMPLEX Whiskey. POT DISTILLED THEN BARRELED IN NEW CHARRED OAK, TRIPLE SMOKE HAS THE SWEETNESS AND BARREL NOTES OF AN AMERICAN Whiskey AND A SINGLE MALT’S RICH SMOKE, BROADENED BY TONES OF CHERRY AND BEECH. EXCELLENT MIXED OR NEAT.

    But a Single Malt Whiskey from the USA is barely worth a fuss today. There are now many small whiskey distilleries in the US, which produce more and more whiskey variants in very small quantities. But the Corsair is not just a single malt. It is made from three different types of malt. The malt used has been "smoked" differently. Part of the malted barley dried under peat fire , another part under cherry wood smoke and the third part under the smoke of beech wood . The result was an exceptional single malt that shows no Scottish peatiness. He has rather absorbed the smoke flavors of cherry wood and beech. It is quite amazing how many cherry flavors come from the smoke of this fruit tree in the whiskey.

    Reminds me a lot of the Swiss beer barrel-aged whiskey Säntis Dreifältigkeit.
    • Nose
      Salmiak, tree resin, orange, grenadine syrup, caramel, salami, rusty iron, nutmeg and vanilla sugar.
    • Taste
      Resinous wood, liquorice, raspberry, ash, salami and caramel.
    • Finish
      A cigar box, including the tobacco. Raspberry, tree resin, pencil shavings, liquorice, salami, caramel and hazelnut praline.
