Expert Senior lachaineduwhisky Note

Au nez, explosion ! Tout vient d'un coup : bacon, feu de bois, braises, plage, poisson, cuir… Avec un peu d'eau, du miel. En bouche, douceur et épaisseur contrastent avec la vigueur et la fumée. Des notes d'orge qui se prolongent dans la finale, très persistante. L'ajout d'eau décuple les épices, ne le rendant pas plus accessible - et c'est bien le seul reproche que je puisse faire. Fumée d'une densité rare. (J'ai pris un Lahproaig juste derrière et il paraissait limite fadasse niveau tourbe) Un très beau whisky, pas pour les petites natures.

Enthousiasme 3/5

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

geräucherter Schinken und BBQ, reife Orangen, sogar ein wenig blumig, sanfter Rauch, Sherry, warme Schokolade, Getreide, ein Hauch typischen Kuhstalls; später bemerke ich Teer und eine erdige Rauchnote (eher sogar noch glimmend bzw. Glutnester), Zimt;
mit ein paar Tropfen Wasser wird es fruchtiger in der Nase, zudem kuht es weniger

Taste

wärmend mit einem starken Antritt, Torfrauch, Pfeffer-Schokolade, etwas salzig, deutlich schmeckt man Malz; wird beim Herumschieben im Mund ein wenig kaffeeiger, Zitrusfrüchte;
mit ein wenig Wasser wird es noch etwas schokoladiger

Finish

leider nur kurz bis mittellang, wenn auch mit einem längeren Nachhall; süß und salzig, Rauch, die Kuhstallnote ist hier etwas deutlicher bemerkbar;
im Nachhall alkoholisch, leichter "heller" Rauch hält sich, etwas bitter, Zitrus am Gaumen (Grapefruit), leichte Kaffeenoten, etwas Eiche

Comments

Irgendwie anders als die Schwesterfässer; lieblicher (was natürlich relativ ist) und süßer statt bitterer Eichennoten, auch runder, aber auch ein wenig leichter oder dünner und nicht so torfig. Verdünnen ändert hier eher wenig, auch wenn es in der Nase dann etwas fruchtiger wird. Zweifellos aber ein sehr guter Ledaig.

Nose

Rauchiger gerösteter Kaffee, verwoben mit dem viel besprochenen Muff, tiefrote dreckige Sherrysüße, herrlich! 

Taste

Rotfruchtig und rauchig, viel Kraft durch den Alkohol, der trotz 60% nur leicht spürbar ist, cremig und pfeffrig

Finish

Kaffee, trockener werdend, Eiche, sehr lange

Comments

Ach wie schön!

Color
Amontillad
Nose

Big on caramel, then some engine oil, earth and even gravy. Coal, bonfire. Chocolate and lemons. Some moss and a hint of roots. Not much more going on, maybe a little bit of salt. Water brings out some dried plums. Extremely dense.

Taste

I've never had a Whisky that tasted so much like peanuts. Some chocolate too which makes it the perfect Hershey's. Quite a load of caramel. With water: Very peaty now. Ashes, moss, salt and roots and quite mineral.

Finish

Long enough. Salty, some caramel, which still lingers in the after taste.

Comments

sample.

Powerful. Fortunately i bought a sister cask. Winter warmer indeed.
