88/89

Going for 90 because of the smooth taste and long soft smokey (Caol Ila) aftertaste. The nose doesn't bring as much as the taste and aftertaste

Nose

Le nez est fruité, citron, vanille, du sel et de la cendre.

Taste

En bouche, la fumée, le poivre puis le citron, c'est crémeux et léger, on sent l'influence du Caol Ila.

Finish

Une finale longue sur la tourbe, le sel et le poivre

  • N: I can’t remember whether i had this before? Is the peat smoke from Caol Ila? Laphroaig? I’ll do my homework later.
  • T: Same again, all very Islay. 
  • F: I’m still in the dark but i’m really liking that i’m drinking.
  • C: A very good smokey/Islay,… blend? Aah, Clynelish and Caol Ila - now i’m up to speed. I have indeed had it before and gave it a point more last time around - due to context.

Nose

Открытый, солод, зерновые нотки, цветочно-фруктовые мотивы, затем лёгкие дымно-торфяные нотки в обрамлении зелёного яблока и минеральных оттенков, лимонная цедра, жирно-масляные ароматы, в целом очень легко и воздушно.

Taste
Дуб, вяжущий, терпкий со сладкой горчинкой, сухие лечебные травы, подгоревшая помадка, варёный сахар, цедра лимона, немного торфа, лёгкие нотки горелой древесины.


Finish
 Пряное, горько-сладкое - сухие травы и сливочный крем; корка грейпфрута, лёгкие нотки пряного дуба, ваниль и корица.


Comments

Отличный аромат, весьма разносторонний, но гармонично слитный, с какими-то даже отсылками к Броре и значительно более приземлённые вкус/финиш в которых не нашлось место развитию минеральных и масляных тем, со временем раскрывается полнее, так что лучше с ним не торопиться.
