    Nose smoke ... rather a lot of smoke but not stinging. Taste: Sweet smoke - no: more of a campfire. Strong. Finish: Long and warm, strong, smoky, some charcoal?

    Don of the Isles private bottling of Glendranostra 56.4%; 40ppm bottle 7 of 77 Prologue: Distilled and matured on Islay, ripened in the Rheingau in a Gault Millau-winning winery in the 49-liter PX barrel, after it had been briefly rinsed by an Oloro barrel, which proved to be leaky. This is the information that the godfather of the organization kindly sent me. Nose: Somewhere in a dark corner of a Sicilian restaurant, four gentlemen in fine suits sit and each has a glass in his hand. It is too small for red wine. It also smells a bit musty and sweetish. Somewhere a window is open and a light breeze from the sea pulls through. The gentlemen raise their glasses and pause for a moment. A soft prayer sounds and the 4 Glendranostri enjoy their drink. Only what is it ..... leather, tar, warm campfire, smoked bacon. Behind it red grapes, raspberries and raisins. No alcohol noticeable. The raisins become more intense over time. In the smoke, the ham prevails, but generally the smoke is rather mild. By the way, he is well seasoned. I would almost commit to a Kilchoman. He is still young, but looks much more mature. He should be about 8 years old (?) In the nose, I estimate him at 14-16 years. Mild and sweet. Creamy, cherries and then figs rolled in bacon. You do not want to let go of it anymore. The alcohol is very well integrated and attacks the tongue until very late. The finish is taken from smoked ham and maritime notes. The finish is long and after about 10 minutes he reminds me very hard of an Ardbeg. Of course, at least for me ;-) It's this very light metallic and leathery aftertaste. A second sip confirms me again in the opinion that it could be an Ardbeg. So much ham on the tongue, madness. The nose has become more compact over time and is the main course and dessert at the same time. I have tasted a little water with a third sip and realize that it is fuller without water and simply does not need water. Conclusion: I am very happy to have gotten a bottle. It is an islay malt, made for friends of the malts, of friends of the malts. Unique in its kind and with no data on the distillery and bodega betrayed, it also makes it mysterious and invites you to take a close look at it. Here, the leadership of the Famiglia has done a very good job and apparently used excellent contacts to make doze great drops available. Bravissimo! Da capo!
