Seb.Whisky
Expert Senior Seb.Whisky Tasting note
16 Jul 2018 11:31 am
Seb.Whisky gave this whisky 84 points
Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Nez: C'est riche, onctueux, pomme verte. Fraîcheur citronnée. Crème de whisky. C'est parfumé, ça a du corps. Ce qui marque c'est la concentration aromatique des fruits frais.

Taste

Bouche: L'alcool est contrôlé. De la vanille bien épicée. De la pomme, de l'orange. Une goutte d'eau va faire exploser les fruits, pomme encore, melon en tête, mais aussi du massepain et peut être des pétales de roses. C'est généreux, ample, juste parfait.

Finish

Finale: Il y a du bon bois, une volée de poivre. Chocolat. A nouveau de la pomme, relent de melon cavaillon.

Comments

A l'image de Kilkerran, c'est une distillerie qui a choisi une belle orientation et qui récolte les fruits de celle-ci.

Pour ce prix là franchement c'est cadeau!

Defeatless
Expert Senior Defeatless Review note
31 May 2018 11:12 pm
Defeatless gave this whisky 87 points
Nose:
Sweet and honey. Vanilla burst and some wood influence. It is rather difficult to work your way around the alcohol.
With water: It gets nice and fruity. A bit of pears, hint of oranges and some apples.

Taste:
Again sweet. Little hay. Some chalk. Then a hit of vanilla, toffee and some stewed apples.
With water: The fruits come more forward, but not much of a change.

Body:
Full and creamy

Finish:
short-medium length. There is some wood in here and a bit of sweet and sour. It also develops rather fruity.
Sad the finish is rather short.
With water: not much of a change!

Price:
Very good price-quality balance! Found for around €45,-

Presentation:
Decent, all the info is on the label.

Citrus, pear, apples, some sherry, caramel, apricot, exotic fruits.

Taste

Citrus, a touch of sherry, oranges, fresh hay, honey, oak, cloves.

Finish

Medium. Fruits and oak.

Comments

Batches of this Arran 12 CS vary concerning the fruit profile. This one is quite well done.

Color
Amber
Nose

Frisch, fruchtig, helle, tropische Früchte, leicht alkoholisch, wird mit der Zeit sanfter, Honig, eine schöne Eichennote.

Taste

Kräftig, prikelnd, frisch, fruchtig, süß-säuerlich, Zitrusschale, etwas Eiche. Sehr robust und direkt.

Finish

Mundfüllend, zuerst herbe Eiche, dann ein paar Frucht und Honigtöne, Zitrus und am Ende wieder eine leichte Bitterkeit von Eiche und etwas Orangenschale.

Comments

Gefällt mir gut, fruchtig, robust und geradlinig. Den 14er mag ich aber etwas lieber, der Sherryeinfluss ist dort spürbarer.

Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Fruitig, citrus, sinaasappelschil, abrikoos, ananas. Fris. Zoet, honing. Wat sherryvat invloed. Karamel ook. Later zelfs kauwgomballen-zoetheid, en vanille.

Taste

Stevig, prikkelend, peperig. Zoet, abrikoos, honing.

Finish

Middellang, licht pepertje nog, perzik, abrikoos, honing. Drogig, beetje bittere ondertoon, hout invloeden. Later ook nog iets bloemigs.

Comments

Aangename zoetige en fris fruitige whisky met toch een 'bite'. Redelijk volle smaak.

Color
Amontillad
Nose

gentle sherry influence, orange, zest, ripe apricots, ripe ananas, malt, typical arran citrus note from wet wipe or disinfectant, alcohol, a little briny

Taste

intense apricots, touch of sherry, aromatic oak, again malt, oat, boozy, grape seed oil, creamy, "dense"

Finish

fruity with oak and grain, alcohol is still present

Comments

im no big arran fan because of that "citrus disinfectant wet wipe" thing. Big plus is that beautiful apricot note

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Sůl, moře,vůně buchty, květiny, citrusy. Po přidání vody hlavně květinové tóny.

Taste

Trpká ovocná sladkost (rybíz, nezralé hrozny), vanilka, sůl, alkohol, koření. Hlavně ke konci se víc a víc otáčí do určité slanosti. Po přidání vody spiše do sladko-kysela.

Finish

Ostružiny, koření, lehká dřevitost. S vodou lehce smetanové zakončení

Comments

Poměr cena/výkon hraje lehce v neprospěch téhle lahve..

Pyromann gave this whisky 70 points
Color
Pale gold
Nose

Slabší nevýrazné víno, sherry, pak ostřejší alkohol - ten vyšší obsah je znát, byla by asi dobrá kapka vody.

/ Weaker and dull wine, sherry, then sharply alcoholic. The dram lets you know about its higher strength, would be nice to add a drop of water.

Taste

Dominuje shery, v pozadí dřevitost a alkohol. V chuti je ostřejší, opět bych příště říznul vodou.

/ Sherry dominates, some woodiness and alcohol in the back.

Finish

Ostrý, středně dlouhý.

/ Sharp and of a medium longevity.

Comments

Moc mě nenadchla, dokázal bych si představil lepší shery kousek. Možná bych měl ještě přechutnat.

/ This one did not excite me much. Could imagine better sherried dram. Maybe its just a bad sample, should re-taste once.
