Calmar
Expert Senior Calmar Tasting note
24 Jan 2018 11:34 am
Calmar gave this whisky 90 points
Color
White wine
Nose

Открытый, мощный, первой волной резина - свежая конвейерная лента, новые шины, гернитовый шнур; на заднем плане дым и торф - закопчённое дерево, угли костра, закопчённая до твёрдости шкура на сале, резина постепенно слабеет, отходя назад.

Taste

Дымно-сладкий, резина - гернит, новый противогаз; копчёности, уголь, сливочная сладость, всё очень плотно, насыщенно, смачно.

Finish
Сладко-угольное, дымное, горелая бумага, сухой торф, лимонная цедра, корка грейпфрута, пережжёный леденец.


Comments

Отличный молодой Лагавулин с нехилым резиновым влиянием, мощный, сочный, глубокий, питкий, к чему тут слова - всё про него давно известно, ураган положительных эмоций в каждом глотке.

Fresh. Citruses, salted minerals, smoke and peat, camphor and fruits.

Taste

Oily. Citruses, apple and orange jam. Smoke and tar.

Finish

Long, smoky, spicy.

Comments

Not too complex but pleasant, powerful refill flavors.

Nose

Le nez est sur la tourbe minérale, le poivre,le citron et une pointe de fruit.

Taste

En bouche c'est le sel, la tourbe et les épices.

L'alcool est bien intégré.

Finish

La finale est longue sèche et poivrée la fumée reste longtemps.

Nose comes out a bit dull, but the taste is great and true to Lagavulin.

Expert Senior Donwaldorf Tasting note

Donwaldorf gave this whisky 88 points
Color
Pale straw
Nose

Les premières effluves sont très minérales sur la coquille d’oeuf, le silex et surtout le fer (Fe). Bien entendu nous n’échapperons pas à la règle Lagavulin avec cette pointe fruitée/citronnée. Le tout se mélange agréablement dans de l’huile de tourbe.

Taste

Une attaque “parfaite”, ni trop vive, ni trop aqueuse. Nous sommes dans la continuité du nez sur les épices, le réglisse, le fer et l’huile de tourbe. A cela s’ajoute des notes salines très plaisantes.

Finish

Belle longueur sur le malt tourbé, le boisé, le sel, la brioche/pain et le chocolat. Un petit côté pâtissier qui n’est pas pour me déplaire.

Comments

Encore un jeune Lagavulin IB qui, dans la lignée des JW et TBWC, est plutôt bien réussi. Le profil reste très classique et peu surprenant mais en demandons nous autre chose ?

Expert Senior lachaineduwhisky Tasting note
10 May 2017 1:45 pm
Color
Pale straw
Nose

Intense, salin, poivré, maritime et végétal à la fois. Notes de citron. Quelques fruits issus du fût de bourbon émergent, la poire notamment. Le malt, lui, vient rejoindre la fête, avec une belle présence. Après la salade de fruits prise au bord de la mer, il reste une sensation de finesse et de délicatesse.
Avec de l'eau, une pointe de chocolat blanc.

Taste

La tourbe, le sel, les fruits et le malt se retrouvent ici avec douceur et intensité. Avec de l'eau, épices douces picotantes.

Finish

Souple, avec un arrière goût fumé.

Comments

Très bien executé. Plus doux qu'un Lagavulin "classique".

Enthousiasme 4/5
