Color
Old gold
Nose

Léger, peu puissant. Premières effluves finement tourbées avec quelques notes salines/iodées  Puis viennent les notes fruitées/ métalliques avec une pointe d'amertume.

Taste

Alcool bien intégré. La fumée/tourbe est presque déjà loin pour faire place aux fruits secs, bois. Sécheresse en bouche.

Finish

Finish moyen, boisé sur les fruits secs. La tourbe n'est plus qu'un lointain souvenir.

Comments

Un nez prometteur, malheureusement en bouche la gourmandise disparaît peu à peu. L'ensemble reste plutôt correct.

Nose

Direktvergleich 2002 vs. 2003: typischer, kräftiger Caol-Ila-Rauch, leicht fleischig und medizinisch, 2002 etwas frischer, 2003 etwas herber, dazu Honig, Banane, süßer Weißwein, etwas Pfeffer

Taste

nach 5 min im Glas: 2002 minimal schärfer, 2003 etwas milder, weicher, sonst keine Unterschiede: kräftiger Rauch, Speck, Grillasche, malzige Süße, Zimt, Trauben-Nuss-Schokolade, weißer Pfeffer

Finish

beide: lang, Rauch, Pfeffer, Bitterschokolade, rote Traubenschalen

Comments

Lecker, meine Lieblings-DE (ich mag Caol Ila und das Moscatel-Finish macht ihn eigen und interessant), für 55€ OK, recht stabil über die Jahrgänge.

Nose

Wünderschöner weicher aber dennoch kräftiger süßer Rauch. helle süße Früchte..Apfel und Orange, Malz, salzig und vielleicht ein Hauch Lakritz. Wow eine tolle Nase!!

Taste

süss und fruchtig, Malz, wie schon in der Nase wundervoll weicher Rauch, salzig, maritim, frisch.

Finish

lang, süss und fruchtig. Am Ende trockener werdent.

Comments

Unglaublich tolle Nase, da möchte man das Glas nicht leeren. Um vieles besser als die normale 12 jährige Abfüllung.

Die Farbe ist etwas heller als die Schwestern von Talisker und Lagavulin. Er wirft schöne dicke Schlieren am Glas. Der Duft ist umwerfend, wunderschön weiche Torfnase. Er schmeckt ebenso weich wie er riecht, unaufdringlicher Rauch, die Moscatel Note könnte ich nicht identifizieren, eher Sherry. Langer, fruchtiger Abgang, der Rauch weicht deutlich in den Hintergrund, die Sherrynote kommt hervor... Wow!
