Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Zitrus, kalte Asche, süßliches Malz, Kräuterbeet, Heu

Taste

Scharfer Antritt mit viel Zitrone und dezenter Asche, süßliche Melasse, dezente Kräuternote im Hintergrund, helle/tropische Früchte (Aprikose, Ananas), Kokos

Finish

Mittellang, abklingende Asche, welche durch Kräuternoten abgelöst wird, trockener werdend mit zunehmender Salzigkeit

Comments

Spannend genug, dass einem nicht langweilig wird. Wirklich vom Hocker reißt er mich allerdings nicht.

Nose

A bit restraint for Kilchoman measures. Lots of fruit combined with earthy ashy peat smoke.....

Taste

Spicy, a bit burnt notes and very pleasant ashy peat smoke

Finish

Lingering peat, in all its simple beauty.

Comments

Not as hefty ashy as other Kilchomans, but it is very good balanced and just simply very very enjoyable.

Colour: Gold
Body: Full

Nose: Quite rich and complex. Sweet, spicy, fruity, smoky, mineral and green notes. Quite creamy, a little popcorn maltiness, vanilla pod, green oak, lemon and lime citrus, peach and apricot. More Sherried and fruitily sweet after a bit.

Water: Softer, darker and less green. Soft lemon, chocolate, oak coming out with liquorice, a little dry with peated grist. Tobacco and some Sherried fruit developing after a bit.

Taste: Sharp arrival, lovely lemon zest and peel, then stony lemon juice with peat smoke developing and mingling with it. I wouldn't it's say complex but it's integrated and powerful.

Water: Softer arrival, fruity at first then cold sea water. Oak developing with Sherry fruit, liquorice and some oakiness, a little tannic and much more drying, then powerful smoke really kicks up with the stony lemon juice coming back. More bitter and tannic after a bit.

Finish: Long length. A peaty puff, then lasting lemon citrus and mineral smoke. With water- More sherried and oaky with tannins, coffee and chocolate.

N- Almond and nutty. Huge pungent ashes smokes in the glass. Solid dried fruits. With water-salty and mineral sea shell, malt sweetness and grassy.

P- Sweet monk fruits, fig and intense burning smokes. Full strength and mouthwatering. With water- more approachable with fresh sour berries and touch of vanilla.

F- Long and intense. Immensely spicy and deep, creamy. With water- sweet berries jam. Stiff and serious.

— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

Nose

Pur: einerseits intensiv rauchig, kalte Asche, Lagerfeuer, maritim, andererseits Zitrusfrucht wie beim 100% Islay. Tolle Kombination. Nach einer Weile Hefeteig, Müsli, Kümmel. Interessant. Mit Wasser: mehr Kräuter, herbal, immer noch viel Rauch, weniger süß, felsige Küste.

Taste

Pur: nicht so scharf wie erwartet, würziger Rauch, Salz und Brotkruste, etwas Honigsüße, kaum Frucht. Lecker und wuchtig! Mit Wasser: wirkt jünger, auch hier mehr würzig und krautig, nicht mehr so süß. Gefiel mir pur besser.

Finish

lang, viel Rauch, schon etwas Reife von der Eiche spürbar.

Comments

sehr lecker, aber hätte auch ein gut gereiftes Bourbon Single Cask sein können. Die Anteile der einzelnen Jahrgänge wäre noch interessant gewesen, ich schätze bei 3000 Flaschen, pro Jahrgang ein Fass. Recht komplex, interessante Noten dabei. Man darf auf die älteren Abfüllungen gespannt sein.
