Gorgeous, another super barrel from Martin!
- A mature whisky that has developed many exotic notes. A good example of what a long-aged whisky can do to add flavor.
The age of the whisky is good to recognize the light wood stove. In addition, blood orange and Amarena cherries emerge with brown sugar.
Exotic notes of ginger and Szechuan pepper dominate the start. Sweet notes of orange and honey follow. The entire taste is determined in the background of tea aromas.
The finish is medium long with chilli and slightly sour notes.
- Serge says:
This can’t be bad. Colour: gold. Nose: a medicinal Speysider! Old embrocations, old mouthwash, blood orange juice, fir wood, camphor, honeydew, a pack of menthol cigarettes (as far as I can remember)… This, I like a lot. With water: some tea-ish tannins, perhaps, but otherwise it’s fine fine fine. Earthy almonds. Mouth (neat): isn’t it funny that we’re finding a Thai side again? Coconut and lemon sauce, pickled ginger, crystallised tangerines, Szechuan pepper (yeah I know Szechuan does not lie in Thailand)… This is really excellent, and so pleasantly ‘different’ again. With water: lemon juice, red bean paste… Finish: medium, with notes of sweet ale and pink grapefruits. Or there, Lagunitas. I’m a fan. SGP:551 - 89 points.
