Expert Senior Dede Note

Dede gave this whisky 94 points

Nez : Sublime. Tout ce qu'on est droit d'attendre d'un Speyside de ce calibre est présent. Figues confites, abricots secs, confiture de prune, vieux bois, encaustique, notes mentholées et chocolatées (After Eight !), boîte en racine de Thuya, vernis, cirage... On pourrait le humer des heures durant sans se lasser.

Bouche : Puissante, mais étonnamment buvable quand on connaît le titre alcoométrique de la bête. Beaucoup de bois, certes, mais tout en tanins soyeux, aucune astringence ni raideur ici. On retrouve la superbe complexité du nez, ainsi que des épices à foison, cannelle en tête, ainsi que du clou de girofle. Quelque chose d'un vieux rhum aussi. Avec un peu d'eau, c'est une incroyable jouiss... Censuré.


Finale :Très longue, cacaotée, avec un retour des notes mentholées et un peu d'orange amère.

Quelle merveille !! Un très grand malt !!

Nose

Le sherry est immédiat et très expressif. Beaucoup de fruits : prunes, pruneaux, figues. L’alcool amène beaucoup de fraicheur mais se fait quand même très légèrement ressentir. Quelques notes de vinaigre balsamique, de cassonade, de cuir, des notes de vernis de confiture d’abricot, de menthe poivrée. C’est très très complexe et riche.

Taste

Quelle puissance ! et quelle texture. Alcool bien intégré. C’est clairement boisé, tannique. Beaucoup d’orange et de mandarine fraiches. La bouche évolue ensuite vers les épices : cannelle, muscade, et du chocolat. Miam.

Finish

Interminable sur un boisé très légèrement asséchant, le cacao.

Comments

Excellent. Complexe, riche.

Color
Deep copper
Nose

Quel nez, sur un sherry fruité, framboise et pruneau puis arrive la cire et les vieux meubles, quelques notes de cuir, le chocolat, orange ainsi que quelques touches de fumée du bois.

Un peu mentholé en fond et légérement résineux.

Aucune agressivité de l'alcool

Taste

L'alcool est trés bien intégré, là aussi on a droit au fruit, orange, framboise et figue puis du chocolat, de la menthe, des épices et des notes terreuses/fumée venant du bois.

Avec un peu d'eau, superbe plus fondu et équilibré et on ne perd aucun arôme.

Finish

interminable o
