Nose

Rauch, aber nicht zu stark, kaum Alkohol, reife Pfirsich, salzige Luft, der Geruch erinnert mich an einen Hafen am Mittelmeer in brütender Sommerhitze, süß, ein Hauch Vanille, sehr wärmend, etwas medizinisch, ein Hauch Wick Vaporup

Taste

Heiß läuft er über die Zunge, der Alkohol brennt nicht, es wirkt jedoch adstringierend, süß, würzige Eiche ohne Bitterkeit

Finish

Rauch legt sich auf den Gaumen, jedoch nicht dominant, mehr wie eine Rauchschwade am Horizont, Eiche, aber wieder nicht bitter, der ganze Rachen glüht angenehm, sehr lang

Comments

Ein wunderbarer Geruch, auf der einen Seite, will ich immer mehr riechen, auf der anderen endlich probieren. So muss es sein.

Der Whisky wirkt sehr reif und edel. Ein Whisky ohne Tempo und Eile, jedoch von gewaltiger Kraft; man spürt sie, ohne, dass sie sich voll entfalten muss. Wie ein dösender Stier in der Sonne.

Der Abgang wirkt ewig. Wie ein Bild, das nicht mehr aus dem Kopf weichen will.

Nose : Citrus (grapefruits), underwood (mushroom and wet soil), polish, smoke, whiffs of dried fruits, almonds.

Mouth : Lemon, menthol, smoke, oak, salt and pepper. Quite juicy and sweet.

Finish : Long, citrusy, smoky, salty.


Not overly complex but what a treat. Clean and perfect balance between lemon, peat, salt, pepper and oak.

Nose

Typical Islay - peated black tea and citrus at first nosing. A little bit closed, which is no surprise cinsidering the strength. A walk in the forrest during the rain. Moss, humus, bark, leather ... all wet. Excellent.

Taste

Wow this is superb! Surprisingly smooth and oily - the alcohol is very well incorporated. Soft elegant peat, black Darjeeling tea with lemon juice, orange cake mixed with licorice ... delicious.

Finish

Like a  peat fire warming from deep inside with a pleasant gingery aftertaste.

Comments

Superb Lagavulin - recommended.

Color
Amontillad
Nose

Открытый, сухой, бархатистый, дым костра, лимонная цедра, кедровая доска, лёгкие оттенки копченого мяса, торф, сладкая вата, лёгкие нотки столярной мастерской, смола.

Taste

Плотный, дымно-сладкий, древесно-смоляной, лимонные цукаты, лимонный перец, карамель, масляно-сливочные нотки, ягодное варенье, курага, сладкий чернослив, всё это окутано дымно-копчёным облаком.

Finish

Пряное, согревающее, карамель, дымно-земляные нотки, лимонные цукаты, ягодный джем (красная смородина, рябина, брусника), лимонный перец, корка грейпфрута, сладко-маслянистые оттенки с переходом на кондитерские мотивы, сухофрукты.

Comments

Великолепный молт, всё хорошее что было в 16-летке здесь возведено в квадрат, сложно, глубоко, очень концентрировано, густо - высшая лига, особенно хочется отметить потрясающую мягкость при почти 60% крепости, из относительных минусов - некоторая узость диапазона составляющих; ценник, конечно, не радует, но за такое удовольствие приходится платить.

[June, 2015]  I had this dram during a "Feis Ile 2015" tasting at Bonn.

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 92,5. I took no detailed notes.

There is no accounting for taste...

Nose

Wonderful bonfire smoke at the beach. There is red berries, rained-on soil, wet grass. The freshness is overwhelming. Vanilla, licorice, sherry, leather, citrus, ether. I could have my nose over the glass forever, it's really pleasant - clean and complex

Taste

Still very fresh with notes of lemon, mint, sherry and banana. Usual peat and sea salt.  White pepper, cayenne pepper, chocolate, herbs

Finish

Mineral and citrusy. Smoke revolves around the mouth + gentle licorice in the background

Comments

Very impressed with this release. A very complex, yet clean and balanced whisky
