- arrives quite intensely, not a starter dram. compared to its syrah counterpart this one is less of an explosion and offers more soft flowing red fruit.
- SCO 2019-04-06 => 92/100
- Strong, rich, peaty whisky. Due to its strong alcohol it is wise to open the bottle and leave the cork of for a week, it will take off the sharp edges. Great whisky, a bit pricey
Smoke at first, the remains of a smoldering campfire, old wood, a sweet balsamic vinigar and an alcoholic desinfect.
Wow, a punchy, full and rich taste containing smoked barly, well baked bread crust, crude oil, ginger and some bitter lemon. The influence of the wine cask clearly results in a strong presence of sweet grapes, i like it.
This strong whisky has a long finish.
- overall extremely demanding
violently. Alcohol, directly behind it typical Port Charlotte straw, damp and smoldering. Burnt gum followed by fresh lemon and berry notes (blueberries). Striking herbs (I can not assign)
again violently. Extremely dense and oily, pressing on the tongue. Dark nut chocolate, strong wood character and only very distant wine notes. Very mineral, thus clearly maritime Islay character.
Peppery spices and again a bitter citrus (rather grapefruit)
- Another beast from Port Charlotte. Strong and very tasty.
Smoked bacon, rubber, diesel oil, burnt pine and bonfire.
Punchy and smoky. Thick. BBQ sauce with salted caramel and spices. Water just tames the beast.
Long. Lingering smoke and spices on the palate. Salty and slightly ashy.
