Nose

Kräftiger Antritt. Angenehmer Rauch. Meeresbrise. Hinter dem Rauch fruchtig. Erdbeeren oder Trauben. Aber auch Eiche. 

Taste

Kräftiger, würziger Eindruck. Viel Eiche. Leicht säuerlich-weinige Traubennote. Kaum Süße. 

Finish

Lang und wärmend. Rauch steigt aus dem Rachen über den Gaumen auf.

Yellow gold
Nose

Heavy and bonfire smoky but also zingy, like lime zest. The proximity to the sea results in a brininess. It's also very woody on the nose and also a black pepper is present. Although the peat is obviously present, I find this one to be rather smoky than peaty.

Taste

Very woody to the taste. Black pepper and American oak come to mind. Some sweetness, that was lacking in the nose, peeks through. Fruitiness like from raisins and cranberries. However, still smoky!

Finish

A sharp but warm finish for this one. Woody and briny.

Comments

Not an overly complex one but very tasty nonetheless. The only Isle of Skye single malt never disappoints.

Nose

The prototypical maritime nose. The elements in the nose really do combine to give a distinct sense of a tangy seashore. Moderate peat with a mineral, briny note. Raisins, pineapple, orange zest and lemongrass. A hint of ginger and anise.

Taste

Starts off spicy sweet with apple, cucumber and black pepper. Rapidly turns more mineral and gingery with some peat and a hint of pineapple. Towards the finish increasingly spicy with notes of anise and sweet chili.

Finish

The peat really manifests itself in the finish, where it is quite distinct. The finish is long, salty and warming, with anise, sea salt, sweet chili and a little pineapple.

Comments

Truly a classic malt. Distinct and recognizable in both nose and taste. Very enjoyable and a perennial favorite.
