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

Nose

Un whisky d'un minimum de 7 ans (info à prendre avec des pincettes), rassemblant un grand nombre des distilleries d'Islay (toutes?).

Nez : Grosse tourbe citronnée d'entrée, de l'iode et des tonnes de citron.
Fait gourmand et très expressif. Pas alcooleux.

Taste

Très belle texture épaisse, gourmande, grasse, sur l'huile de poisson, l'iode, la tourbe, le citron (moins marqué qu'en nez), la terre et la cendre. Alcool très bien intégré.

Finish

Très longue, agréable, assez grasse, sur la terre, l'iode, le citron.

Comments


Ce whisky en met plein la vue. Simple mais très bien fait. Une très agréable surprise et un superbe rapport qualité prix.

Nose

Without water: Fresh, sharp, mineral and citrussy peat, salt, seabreeze, brine, green cucumber and just the right amount of vanilla and pickled ginger to add a distinct layer of complexity preventing the whisky from being a one-trick-pony. Beautifully fresh, sweet, tart and peaty.
With water: Sweeter with apple peelings, lemon soda and green banana. After a while the peat smoke returns with more intensity.
Beautiful, extremely fresh nose.

Taste

Without water: Extraordinarily smooth for 59% Vol.! Sweet and silky attack with vanilla and citrus, then with the peat creeping its way to the tongue getting salty and bitter-sweet along the development. Bitter, sweaty and salty woodsmoke in the back of the palate. Very nice!
With water: Water surprisingly is not mandatory, but intensifies the peaty development, the briny and sweaty notes and the woodsmoke. The sweetness with lemon and vanilla and mashed banana is always present and gives depth and substance.
Interestingly, there's also a delicate floral note buried within the layers of peat. Love it.

Finish

Long, briny, smoky and warming.

Comments

I really like this Islay expression, it's pure and simple and tart and brutal, but delicate and refined at the same time. At just below 40€ it's also very fairly priced and is a great alternative to your peated Bunnahabhain or Bourbon matured Port Charlotte, while Southern Shore malts would probably be more complex than this. But who needs complexity if you can have this with its incredible freshness?
