Je partage le descriptif de Sagara, pas vu la tourbe...
Je n'ai pas retrouvé sur le moment mon sample qui vient
d'une autre bouteille pour comparer. Mais j'ai remis la main
dessus... a suivre.

Nose
Premier nez très exotique puis s'épuise un peu. Passion. Fruits jaune. C'est plutôt rond et très bien fait.
Pâte d'amande.
Taste

Très bonne fruitée. Puissante. Jaune et mangue toujours. 

Finish
Finale avec un peu de fumée de cigarette
Fruits jaunes. Pêche.
Comments

Pas l'impression d'avoir bu le même whisky que les autres gens ici. Pas senti de tourbe du tout, et je ne suis pas le seul. Pourtant il est bien inscrit "peated" sur la bouteille donc bon ...


Ça reste très bon.

Nose:- Malty with refine sweet irish peat smoke, similar to cola, gripping on subtle buttery vanilla aroma. Catch the sour fruits on top half.

Palate:- The smell of wet grass and turf on a field. Earthy, creamy mouthfeel with a touch of cedar. Soft and elegant.

Finish:- Silky. Medium long. Warm ginger linger on with a faint ashes.

— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

Nez : Joliment fruité, sur un mélange de fruits exotiques (passion, mangue) et jaunes (pêche, abricot). Un côté pâtissier aussi avec de la pâte à viennoiserie, et un voile de tourbe médicinale en fond. Très bien fait.

Bouche : Puissante, la tourbe, fine, se fait plus présente mais n'écrase pas les fruits pour autant. Exotisme, tourbe médicinale, l'association n'est pas sans évoquer quelques vieux Islays, la patine du temps en moins.

Finale : longue, fruitée et tourbée avec un soupçon de poivre blanc et un peu d'amertume réglissée en fond.

Conclusion : une très belle réussite !!

Nose

Less immediately tropical than the Nectar 1991/2014 Peated Irish Single Malt. More peach, green and grassiness added to more subtle peat. Water brings out more cask mustiness, some some more floral fruit notes, and more obvious peat. 

Taste

Here are the fruits, loud and clear. Tropical, yes, but more mango and less passion fruit than the Nectar version - a "wider" profile. Oilier on the mouth. Light peat makes an entrance, beautifully integrated with the fruit. Water releases more sweetness - it is sweeter than the Nectar now, less bitterness and grapefruit notes.  More peat with water, and a little medicinal - clear old Islay territory. Time in the glass and even more tropical fruit emerge. 

Finish

Fruits and peat linger, and a pleasantly drying, peppery finish is added. 

Comments

These peated Irish single malts are a revelation. How many more are waiting in the wings, and how will they develop further with time in the cask?

It's a double distilled bushmills and hence the fruitiness. The peat is very subtle.

Nose: my first impression was a slightly bigger peatiness, but this levels out over time. This one is maybe slightly less sweet on the nose, but it does have a clear buttery / toffee note that the TNOTDD doesn’t have. Similar fruitiness (pear, maracuya, mango, banana) alongside the subtle peat and ever so light medicinal notes (menthol). Mouth: almost identical to the other cask, hard to set apart. A sweet, tropical fruitiness mixed with subtle peat that seems older than it actually is (1960’s Bowmore anyone?). Minty notes, a little walnut. Fades on creamy mocha. Finish: long, slightly earthy, still very fruity with a soft peppery touch.

You could say 2014 was a year of excellent independent Irish releases (both peated and non-peated), thanks to the Teeling family and a couple of bottlers with great noses. A must-try.

Score: 92/100

Acording to the bottler this 2 times distilled irish whiskey comes from a cask wich contained peated whisky in its previous life. Not from peated barley. Verry different style, i like it, , lovely,

I'd rather have a full bottle in front of me, than a full frontal lobotomy.
