Color
White wine
Nose

Ausgesprochen salzig, Torffeuer, Räucherfisch, kräftige Mineralität und Zitruszesten. Später aschiger aber auch süßer nach "verkohltem" Apfel und krautigem Heu.

Taste

Voller Antritt von Torfrauch und stechender Salzigkeit. Dabei aber nicht plump oder gar brutal sondern eher wunderbar subtil und unglaublich harmonisch. Wird mit der Zeit aschiger, wieder auch Zitruszesten und verregnetes Heu.

Finish

Sehr lang, Torfrauch, Asche, Bitterschokolade, Salz und geträuchters Malz. Dabei ausgesprochen komplex und lebendig.

Color
Pale straw
Nose

Lemon and Iodine. A fresh and sour green apple. Vanilla sweet.

Taste

A lot of citrus at the begin but very fresh and light. (velvet smooth). More peat in taste than expected from the nose. After the sour start and the peat you get some sweeter tones followed again with a sharper and hotter sourness. At the end drying out with more wood and a little salt. Some bitterness on the side.

Finish

Medium finish, dry smoke and wood. Also the salt keeps hanging around for a good time.

Comments

Good refreshing dram!!

Nose

Voici un whisky bien tourbé, iodé à souhait. Citronné. Il y a une sucrosité, l'ensemble est gras et va droit au but. L'eau va le détendre, donner de la vanille, de la pomme. Pelures d'agrumes.

Taste

C'est en bouche que Peat va prendre tout son sens. Toujours ce citron très présent. Pour ce qui est du full proof, c'est parfaitement intégré, bien que celui-ci ne manque pas de puissance. L'eau offre encore de ces pelures d'oranges, de mandarines, de pamplemousses. 

Finish

La tourbe devient plus végétale, mais c'est une acidité citronnée qui persiste afin de préserver une belle fraîcheur. De la fumée de tabac.

Comments

Un whisky qui brille par une simplicité qui lui va à merveille.

Un bel assemblage de Islay(s), j'ignore lesquels... Probablement un peu de Caol Ila, c'est un favoris de Speciality Drinks.

Un bon candidat pour appréhender le reste de la gamme. (Passion du Whisky).

Je connais le style minimaliste des embouteillages de Speciality Drinks, et je l'apprécie beaucoup ! Mais quand tu choisis d'abandonner le concept des symboles chimiques pour balancer "Peat", je trouve ça hyper réducteur. Autant écrire : "Hey, les gars, venez ! Islay, c'est la tourbe non ? Quelles distilleries ? On s'en fout, on a mélangé du gros tourbé qui tâche de toute l'île et on va vous arracher la gueule en frisant les 60°". J'étais pas là à la réunion marketing, mais allez savoir pourquoi, c'est ce que je me suis imaginé. J'avais donc un assez mauvais a priori sur cette quille.  Au nez, tourbe très franche, mi gourmande (carnée) mi minérale (galets). Plus tard, du malt doux. Avec de l'eau, plus crémeux, limite chocolat au lait. En bouche, vif et puissant, mais très bonne intégration alcoolique. Puis des fruits jaunes. Texture épaisse. Sucré et épicé après la première gorgée. Avec de l'eau, la bête est un peu domptée, mais le fruité persiste, avec une texture huileuse, presque visqueuse. Finale tapissante, onctueuse même, longue et saline. Eh ben c'était bien en fait ! Un super blended malt qui fait produit d'appel pour le reste de la gamme de ces single malts d'Islay embouteillé cask strength.

Enthousiasme 4/5
