Comments

Der Whisky ist schön weich und leicht mit einer wenn auch nur leichten aber dafür angenehmen Süße. Im Aroma konnte man eine nicht näher definierbare parfümierte Note erkennen die aber nicht störend oder gar aufdringlich ist. Ein junger aber aber dennoch solider Whisky - 18.11.2017

Nose

On commence avec une amertume un peu envahissante apporté par le bois et le végétal bien marqué. Au fur est à mesure de l'ouverture il gagne en gourmandise et s'engraisse agréablement. Des notes fruitées arrivent puis une certaine fraicheur. Et c'est tout pour moi

Taste

Facile à garder, la texture est assez fluide. On attaque avec de la vanille. Malt, miel, fruits rouges et chocolat au lait. Les goûts s'enchaînent bien. Une amertume rappelant le nez vient en fin de bouche rend le dram forcément astringent.

Finish

Courte sur les fruits, le bois/épices et l'amertume


Comments

Un whisky somme toute équilibré, bien fait, mais peu complexe, aucune originalité et un poil trop jeune

Yes, I'm here, all the way up here - in the boardroom above the G&M shop in Elgin, for a bespoke tasting. After a simple yet welcomed lunch, expectations were high for five drams to follow [starting with a Glen Spey WB]. Hopefully it'll be a high five.


N: Creamy wetsuits with some tamarind and mild [no heat] cholula.

T: Orange-chocolatey sherry - many woods [trees/casks] and many alcohols. There's lots of sherry [types] that seem to disguise the situation.

F: Sweet-bitter-sour,... all-sorts. Undesirable burnt news at the end.

C: What is the Speymalt remit? Could be a way of using up what's left over in various warehouses. Feels like the sherry is masking a lot as so often it does, and very nicely too. Certainly a masterclass in blending and I like the result, but I'm not sure it's all that great a malt - although the best so far today :/ Last chance for something memorable,…. with a young, peated Bunna :/ WB.

Easy to drink whisky which brings a lot of sweetness but no bitterness and is an "easy to drink" dram which is definitely worth its money (40€ 04/2016)

Macallan "Speymalt" 2006-2015, 43% alc. G&M

Macallan "Speymalt" 2006-2015, 43% alc.
Abfüller: Gordon & MacPhail
Ausbau: Sherryfässer
Region: Speyside, Schottland

Nase: Jugendlich fruchtig, fast schon spritzig, vor allem treten tropische Früchte in den Vordergrund. Mango, Banane, Aprikose, dahinter Karamell, Melasse und etwas Honig.

Gaumen: Fruchtig geht es weiter, ähnelt dem Eindruck der Nase, doch wirkt nun dicker, cremig und würzig. Dazu kommen leichte Tabakaromen und etwas Kaffeeschokolade.

Abgang: Mittellang bis lang, würzig mit Zimt und Pfeffer zudem Zartbitterschokolade.

Fazit: Jung, ausgeglichen und sehr elegant. Eine gute Alternative zu den Originalabfüllungen.

88/100 Punkte (verkostet 2016)
Ich danke Ian Chapman von Gordon & MacPhail für die Probe!
