3 Notes

Thermidor
Expert Senior Thermidor Tasting note
20 Aug 2017 4:29 pm
Thermidor gave this whisky 90 points
Color
Yellow gold
Nose

A vivid note of over 20yo oak, dried malts, then fruits: lemons, some pears, red apple juice, then some peat, a fresh turnip with some soil on it, and finally a shy note that feels like bourbon, so I guess it's no longer a mystery what this hogshead was previously filled with. With 1 tsp water the oak and peat come out more, but with some more water added the fruits are back with a vengeance. Now it's got a pale ale citric edge to it.

Taste

It's a little sharp neat. The body is medium weight and rich, and very consistent with no off layers or notes. Copper coins, apple juice, the faintest kiss of peat, and tinned peaches. Just a single teaspoon of water is enough to round away all the edges and make it velvety smooth, but it's worth trying another teaspoon as well. Twix bars (caramel and wafers), nougat, pears, and that turnip again. 

Finish

Acidic, lightly leathery, with some peppery oak. Very elegant, faintly tannic, delightfully lasting.

Comments

Stylistically this is a middle of the road malt with a bit of everything (sans sherry), and as such it should work for anybody. This and TWE Single Malts of Scotland Benrinnes 24yo 1990 (89 pts.) would probably be a great pair for a tasting.

Tasted with 25yo 1990 DL XOP cask 10989 (88 pts.), 25yo 1990 MacKillop's cask 8554 (89) and 24yo 1989 BB cask 7854 (85), and separately with 25yo 1990 SV CSC cask 2751 (88).

Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Fruité vers la prune et le pruneau avec une pointe de citron. Alcool bien intégré.

Taste

Complexe et plaisant. Olives et épices avec un fond de fumé.

Finish

Très joli finish beurré et boisé. Long en bouche.

Comments

Tres belle découverte, un petit coup de coeur.

Glen Garioch 25 yo 1990/2015 (50.6%, Signatory Vintage, hogshead, cask #2752, 275 bottles) Five stars Colour: gold. Nose: this, is going to be quick. Perfect, with a medicinal side that hints at older vintages of Glen Garioch. Some kind of bridge-vintage? And there’s even the peat. Superlative so far. With water: barley, shoe polish. Mouth (neat): oh so gooood! Peat smoke, lemons, eucalyptus, green chartreuse, pepper liqueur, earthy teas… Everything’s perfect. Body’s perfect. Oomph’s perfect. With water: even more perfect. Stunning lemony earthiness. Finish: same, for a pretty long time. Comments: finally, I managed to write some short tasting notes! Great great bottle by Signatory. SGP:553 - 91 points.
