A pseudo peated whisky at a slighty too high price.

Tasted at Scapa distillery.

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.

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.

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.

Amontillad
Nose

sehr offen und intensiv, erst frisch-fruchtig, blumig, Haribo-Bären, speziell Ananas, dazu Honig (erinnert irgendwie an die typische Auchentoshan-Hausmarke), dann eine zarte Lagerfeuernote

Taste

Frucht finde ich hier nicht, aber viel Süße, Vanille, Honig, Karamell, etwas angebranntes Brötchen gibt einen Extra-Kick

Finish

mittellang, Karamell, etwas würzig, der Lagerfeuerrauch kommt nochmal ziemlich deutlich

Comments

Gefällt mir, leckeres Zeug, besser als so mancher 10er/12er Standard, aber 57€ für 'nen 40%-NAS - die spinnen. Für 40€ wäre das 'ne tolle Sache.
