[June, 2016]  I had this dram during a "Feis Ile 2016" tasting at Bonn.

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 82,5.  My notes state a sightly bitter finish.

There is no accounting for taste...

Color
Deep copper
Nose

Karamell und vergorener Apfelsaft, hinzu kommen Aromen von Käsefuß, Gewürzgurke, geröstete Haselnüsse, leicht maritime Anklänge

Taste

Wieder das dominante Karamell, Vollmichschokolade. etwas Salz, mit Zugabe von Wasser wird er zur Möbelpolitur

Finish

mittellang mit anhaltender säuerlicher Note

Comments

Wegen der permanenten säuerlichen Kompenente absolut nicht mein Ding - ein seltsamer Dram

Nose

Vordergründig Karamell, dazu gemahlene Espressobohnen, tatsächlich auch ein Hauch Rauch, säuerliche Frucht, Quitte, und auch süßlich wie Mirabelle, leicht maritim, salzig, der Karamell köchelt und wird langsam dunkler, geröstete Nüsse kommen dazu, unglaublich cremig, mit etwas Zeit wird es frischer mit Kiwi und frisch aufgeschnittenem grünen Apfel, und immer wieder fett Karamell drüber...

Taste

cremig, fruchtig, süß, Mirabelle, dann Salz, trockener, viel Würze von der frischen Eiche, etwas Zimt, aber immer noch süß, Karamell, mit einem säuerlichen Unterton, Richtung Lakritze gehend, leicht bitter und würzig, Grapefruit, Espresso, das Virgin Oak Finish gibt immer mehr den Ton an

Finish

das Lakritzige bleibt, auch die säuerliche Note der Grapefruit, trockener werdend, Eiche, Fruchtschale, auch hier wieder ein Hauch Rauch mit dabei, mittellang

Comments

Spannend, gefällt mir von Schluck zu Schluck besser.

Nose

Lactic. Caramel. Earthy funk. Some farmyard notes, straw and manure. Wood oils. Basil.

Taste

Parsley. Salt. Leather. Burned sugar. Sweet fruits.

Finish

Long. Oranges. Woodspice. Wood oils.

Comments

This one had enough of the Laddie character to be a bit different but enough peat to not be too cloyingly sweet. I liked it a lot, probably my favorite of the 2016 festival releases that I tried.
