Farbe: Chardonnay

Nase: Oh, Kilchoman im Glas? Grüne Aromen, Grapefruit, Limonen, Salz und Pfeffer und das nicht mal wenig. Honig, torfiger Rauch und Anklänge von Vanille (Creme Brulee) und Aromen von frisch geschälten grünen Äpfeln entwickeln sich im Glas.

Geschmack: Cremig, recht dick und mächtig salzig-süß. Vanille mit viel fruchtiger Limone und Torf, trockenem Leder, Seetang, Jod, Schiffstau und etwas Eukalyptus.

Finish: Mittellang – durchgehend mit grünen Aromen und viel Vanille! Rauch, Torf, nasse Kohle, süße Limone auch hier im Abgang wieder. Immer trockener werdend aber ohne jegliches Holz. Süßer Torf und Limone bleiben auf der Zunge.

Bemerkung: Insgesamt gut – für einen 8yo eine wirklich gelungene Abfüllung die im Rückblick einen 15yo Laphroaig locker aussticht.

One of the few times I found the noise to be unassuming compared to the palate. 

Did not think much of this release upon first opening. However after just a week of oxidization this is a winner!

Noise; light smoke and vanilla with a medicinal touch.

Palate; loads of sweet flowers and peat with some medium honey and soft leather in the background.

Finish; WOW very pungent honey-peat smoke with loads of sweet medicinal flowers and a bit of spice.

A perfect summer dram. Nice strong complex balance of fresh tasting notes throughout. A very unique peat experience that is not found in many a peat monster. Great value for the money!

Nose

Surprisingly complex smoke flavor, with some peat and charcuterie. Some marzipan once you add a touch of water, and give it time.

Taste

Very satisfying smokey, peppery finish. Slightly medicinal as expected.

Finish

Pretty long for an 8 year old. A good dram.

Nose

Only faint smoke on the forefront, more on the background. More grain, green grass, forest smells. Quite an oily "feel" to the nose, with definete peaty notes of medicine, organic fusile notes, fresh tar, sour balsamico


Taste

fresh peat smoke, vinegar, fresh and vibrant, barley sugar, bread, great mouthfeel smooth arrival which really builds and becomes very full, bitter, edgy and raw yet still elegant and balanced


Finish

Ending in different types of smoke, beach notes, clams, mineral, drying ashy notes of road tar, cigar, notes of old ashtray or buned out coal from barbecue
