el Gato
Expert Senior el Gato Tasting note
05 Nov 2017 5:56 pm
el Gato gave this whisky 92 points
Color
Old gold
Nose

Peaty. Interesting. Eartly notes. Then of course the more tropical side like banana and passion fruit. Candy with time. Malty in the very end.

Taste

Fruit bonanza. Banana. Peach. Strawberry jam. Citrus

Finish

Medium - Long finish. Spicy. Liquorice. Bitter. Peachy. Definately not a dry finish

Comments

This is perhaps one of the most mouthwatering drams I've had. More, more more!!

Expert Senior aphex Note

aphex gave this whisky 89 points

Nose : Peat strikes first then some fruits (bananas).
Mouth : Smoky fruits jam ! Bananas, some citrus. With water : more jam, less smoke.

Finish : Smoke and citrus. A subtle bitterness.

I still prefer the unpeated überfruity versions but it was definitely interesting, enjoyable and simply good.
