  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Really beautiful ! To savor without water. Enthusiasm 4/5 (3/5 with water) Whisky n ° 1541
    • Nose
      Peat fire by the sea. Fresh fruit ... in a cool atmosphere! Leather. Fragrant malt. It reminds me of Kornog for its beautiful peat / fruit balance. With water, more honeyed and maritime.
    • Taste
      We find all the above-mentioned aromas with beautiful spices, and notes of fresh bread. Superbly balanced, medium-thick, medium-fluid texture. Intense ! More lively and spicy with water, even if you lose your balance.
    • Finish
      Smoke. Light but with a very beautiful persistence. Fruits in retro-olfaction. Pepper is distinguished with water.

    Nice outfit for this whisky. It's a safe bet that it is a Lagavulin, in any case he convinced me.
    • Nose
      A nice smoke accompanied by freshness, minty lemon and a mineral point (Lagavulin?). After a while, we smell the ashen barbecue.
    • Taste
      Pretty lively, spicy. The smoke disappears little by little to give way to a certain acidity, a more vegetal and fruity side (citrus).
    • Finish
      Beautiful length. The return of the smoke is felt (mainly on peat oil). A vegetal and peaty finish. A slight bitterness points the tip of his nose on the end.
