Color
Russetmuscat
Nose

A light peatiness, which is to be expected from a peated cask finish. It goes hand in hand with a salty sea spray and some brine. A whisper of vanilla, accompanied by a good amount of ripe banana.

Taste

Fairly dry and quite peaty, with some soot and tar to boot. Notes of toasted oak, heather and a light touch of honey round everything out.

Finish

Subtle peat, drying.

Rubbish

Manufactured crap with a really bad aftertaste

The nose is ok but it's all downhill from there.

I picked the Scapa 16 what a nosedive in quality this and the Skiren are in comparison.

A pseudo peated whisky at a slighty too high price.

Tasted at Scapa distillery.

Color
Old gold
Nose

Never found this level of articulate peat in an Orcadian before. More briny than heathery. But still very fleeting and elusive.

Soft fruit on pear and pineapple.

A little vanilla and some fatty almonds.


Taste

Peat smoke also on initial arrival, although weak. A little young and rough, but there are some sweet fruit to soften it.


Finish

Rather short with some oaky dryness to it.


Comments

It is not made with peated barley, rather getting the peat note from re-using what I suspect are Islay casks.

Leider etwas enttäuschend. Kann aus meiner Sicht den 16er weder ersetzen noch überhaupt ansatzweise den Charakter wiederspiegeln. Wenig Aromen, sehr dünnes Mundgefühl und mittellanger Abgang.

Color
Amber
Nose

Kompot z tropického ovoce - dominuje ananas, dále je cítit mango, trochu pak švestky. Objevují se sušené fíky, slad, troška soli, koření, vanilky a kouřových tónů.

Taste

Prvotní nástup lehčí rašeliny, později se více tlačí do popředí broskve, slad, cereálie, krémové latte.

Finish

V dozvuku opět latte, cereálie, výraznější kořenitost a samozřejmě rašelina. Dlouze doznívá 

Comments

Není to špatné, ale chtělo by to vyšší voltáž  a nižší cenu. Ale dle mého názoru lepší počin než Skiren.

Expert Senior lachaineduwhisky Tasting note
26 Jun 2017 5:38 pm
Color
Pale gold
Nose

Assez fruité au début, typique d'une maturation en chêne américain ex-bourbon, fumée peu marquée. Les arômes se brouillent un peu au fur et à mesure et finissent même par s'évanouir.

Taste

Pas d'attaque. Ensuite, doux et plutôt agréable, mais un peu plat. Quelques épices, mais un petit manque d'équilibre.

Finish

Plutôt insignifiante.
