Connoisseur Archer Tasting note

Color
Old gold
Nose

Eine feine Rauchnote, die Noten von Aprikose und Honigmelone umwölkt. Wenig torfig, dafür hat der Rauch einen leicht stechenden Einschlag von Salmiak. Sobald sich die Nase an den Rauch gewöhnt hat, dominieren die Früchte und feine Vanille. Etwas Eiche.

Taste

Voller Körper. Rauch, wie er aus einer Kammer dringt, in der Würstchen geräuchert werden. Heidekraut und Honig, Fruchtnoten. Wie in der Nase verflüchtigt sich der Raucheindruck rasch und hinterläßt eine angenehm wärmende fruchtige Süße.

Finish

Mittellang und trocken werdend mit zunehmender Eiche und einer Rückkehr erkalteten Rauchs.

Comments

Rund, ausgewogen, fein. Der 22YO kann sich sehen lassen. Der Preis ist natürlich dennoch irrwitzig.

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Leder, säuerliche Zitrusfrucht, Eukalyptus, Tannengrün, süßes Karamell, leicht Räucherschinken

Taste

Süßes Karamell, Eukalyptus, Zitrusfrucht, Waldbeeren, belegt den Mundraum. Alkohol angemessen kräftig

Finish

Schöner Abgang mit Tannengrün, Eukalyptus 

Comments

Der ist anders. Aber gut anders. Gefällt mir um Längen besser als die jüngeren Abfüllungen. Ungewöhnliche Noten dominieren, Rauch ist fast gar nicht wahrzunehmen.

Nose

The nose is surprisingly soft, as if the peat is already matured out. I get mostly toffee, grass, oranges and lime, lots of earthy notes, ashes and vanilla. Green grapes and honey. So this is mostly fruity on citrus with only a touch of peat. Something of sunshine of gravel. But this is a very enticing nose, despite the fact that it shows little complexity for each age. Humble.

Taste

It is sweet and sour on the palate, with a fine body. Gooseberries, Granny Smith apples, grapefruit, vanilla, oranges and honey. The peat smoke is really discrete, but does give it some nice depth. Loads of spices, though. Even a touch salty. How lovely indeed.

Finish

The finish is medium long, bittersweet with a touch of smoke and a surprising floral hint. I get some liquorice at the death. 

Comments

Good, but especially interesting Connemara, because softer than its younger brothers without losing character. Around 130 EUR nowadays, but gladly spent.

A nice subtle peated malt, not much else going on. Imo definitely not worth the rrp of €100+

Glad I just had a sample of it, now I know what it's about.

Color

Nose

zurückhaltende Nase, ölige Zitrone, Zimt, Zucker, abgebauter phenolischer Rauch, Minze, Harz, Zitrusöl

Taste

leicht säuerlich süße Zitrone, Zimt, Nelke, feine Rauchreste, frische Minze kühlt den Gaumen, trocken und adstringierend, feine Eiche, salzig

Finish

würzig, frisch, kühlend, zitronig

Comments

schöner runder Malt - ausgewogen, würzig, fein -  schmeckt nicht wie ein typischer Ire, blind würde ich auf einen Schotten tippen, aber ob der jetzt 15, 18 oder 22y alt ist - den Unterschied schmecke ich da nicht so recht raus

Nose

Wie der 12er peated immer noch sehr filigran und zurückhaltend, eher noch mehr sogar, weit hinten hat man süßliches, modriges Holz am Strand, etwas Vanille, Eukalyptus und Minze, Zitronendrop, Moschus, Hauch Birne

Taste

Im Mund ebenfalls filigraner als der 12er, hier wiederum aber deutlich komplexer und mit der Zeit nur zunehmend voller zum Ende hin, man hat eine sehr interessante Mischung aus Küstenlandschaft und Blumenfeld, dazu Birne, grüner Apfel, Zitrone, Vanille, Honig, gesalzenes Karamell und wieder die Blumigkeit, Hauch Minze, aber nicht so präsent wie in der Nase dazwischen, gefällt x mal besser noch als die Nase!

Finish

Strandgut, trockenes Moos, Hauch Blumen, aber das Salz, die Zitrussäure und der leichte Ruß sind präsenter, grüner Apfel, Eukalyptus, mittellang bis lang

Comments

Bei der Nase hatte ich noch Angst der Unterschied zum 12er peated sei nicht so groß, wie sehr man sich täuschen kann! Im Mund bis zum Abgang um ein vielfaches überlegen und abwechlungsreich!

Nose

Süßer Rauch, der schon recht deutlich im Vordergrund steht. Vanille gepaart mit modrigem Holz. Da ist auch etwas minziges oder Menthol. Birne schlüpfte mir da auch gerade in die Nase. Es zeigen sich auch leicht würzige Noten. Hier brennt und sticht nichts, er geht behutsam mit der Nase um.

Taste

Sehr weich und sanft. Cremig. Im ersten Moment ist er eher neutral, nach ein paar Sekunden setzt dann der Rauch ein. Ein paar weitere Sekunden später kommt wieder diese Mentholnote dazu und bleibt recht spürbar vorhanden. Florale Noten.

Finish

Er läuft die Kehle ohne brennen oder Stechen hinab, ein wärmendes Gefühl fehlt. Wieder das dezente Menthol. Der Rauch nicht so dominant. Ganz leichte trockene Eindrücke. Bleibt etwas übrig?  

Vielleichtbetwas modrigem Holz, leichtes Menthol.

Comments

Wenn jemand etwas dezent rauchige und gut trinkbar aus Irland sucht, der wird hier fündig. Für Expertennasen scheint hier bestimmt auch noch mehr drin zu sein, für mich leider nicht.
