Très "dirty", fermier, grosse tourbe. Citronné aussi. 

Cette bouche tabasse ! Crasseuse à souhait. 

Avec un peu d'eau, le chocolat rentre en scène, plus rond, moins bourrin, bref plus équilibré. Une note de soufre.

Tourbe imposante de bout en bout.

Enthousiasme 4/5

Whisky n°1420

(Dégusté à l'aveugle)

Color
Mahogany
Nose

Bacon,wood smoke, seaweed-driven, boggy peat, almonds, cow stable, and menthol. The only fruity relation that I can determine isn't really fruit, but lemongrass.

Taste

Powerful, hot, and peppery when undiluted. The taste is clearly dominated by salty, boggy peat, iodine and almond. When reduced, it's more in balance, with additionally plaster, putty, menthol, hay, and cow stable. 

Finish

Long and lingering, with a weaker load of peat, still some almonds, bandages, and menthol.

Comments

Somehow it made me think of a Laga 16 on steroids, which is meant as a big compliment.

Cheers! Paul

Mahogany
Nose

stark und wuchtig mit einer Menge Rauchnoten (BBQ, Torf, verkohltes Holz, Schießpulver und sanfter Zigarrentabak), erdig und mineralisch (könnte Schiefer sein), etwas Schwefel und Menthol, Gewürze (Muskat) mit einem Hauch Ingwer, Walnüsse;
später kommt mehr Schinken durch und ganz allgemein die typische Ledaig-Note, auch wird es fruchtiger, auch der Schwefel wird etwas deutlicher

Taste

wird wuchtig und kommt dann pfeffrig, dicker Teer, torfig, etwas Nelke, später wird es süßer und die Zitrusnoten deutlicher (in Richtung Orangen), dunkles Dörrobst

Finish

lang, warm, trocken und stark; Eiche, schwer torfig, Kräuter und ganz allgemein "irgendwie grün" (Pflanzensaft, Herbstlaub), im Nachhall ein klein wenig salzig

Comments

für mich die bessere der beiden Artist #5 Abfüllungen
