- A massive Speysider
Sherry, furniture polish, smoke, apple, dried fruits like apricot, caramel, malt, herbs, spices. A vety busy nose, indeed.
Strawberries, raspberries, orange peel, milk chocolate, coffee, black pepper, oak wood smoke. Sweet and salty. Alcohol well integrated. Doesen't need water. I like the punch when it's neat.
Sherry sweetness, pepper, camp fire, coffee. The finish is quite long, due to the 57% ABV. A powerfull dram for the end of the day.
- blind Sample
Nose: Dominant apple with sweet smoke, slightly salty, light fruit, mineral, some tar. Campfire smoke with light iodine, easily reminds me of Lagavulin with less smoke. Smells like my prey scheme, goil! But Islay South Coast is not.
Taste: sweet / salty, spicy, herbs, orange, pear, smoked bacon
Finish: Medium long, smoky, sweet, herbaceous, dark chocolate, slightly vinous, gets quite dry.
Tip: smokers in cask strength, maybe a Port Charlotte or a smoky BenRiach. The alcohol is well integrated, guess 8-10 years old and sherry barrel.
- I find it more interesting than his "weaker" brother but somehow he moves "between the chairs". Either I search in the segment of "moderate smoker" and there are sooo many alternatives, such as Bowmore, Caol Ila or even an Ardmore Traditional Cask ... or I'm looking for something with "neat turns", then there are quite different blasts, especially from the independents like Marco Bonn and Michel Reick.
- basic whisky fresh, not too much, not enough!
thick smoke, a little meat,
malt, dried herbs,
a little chocolate, a little bit of leather
dry smoke, a little bitterness
chocolate too, dry chips,
Lemon and mandarin in zest!
it stings, dry peat in return and that remains!
Delicate peat, gouache, smoked meat, flowers, smoke, Indian incense, old leather clothes, a little smell of the coastline, pills. 22
Moderate, moderately dry. Black pepper, smoked meats, spices (cloves?), Smoky motifs, salt, a little bitterness. 21
Long, warming. Pepper, a little haze, mineral notes, medical motifs appear in a nuance, closer to the end of the dram, metallic shades are added. 22
High-quality, tasty, for 10 years - very smooth and balanced whisky. Balance - 22
Wonderfully complex and smoky. In addition, vanilla, burnt caramel, salt, pithy vegetable flavors (chicory, root vegetables in the rent), soil, walnuts, leather and shoe polish. Later oak, cinnamon, allspice, ginger and orange peel follow.
Surprisingly soft and oily onset. Nutty sherry, walnuts, nut shells, then smoky aromas, old metals, earthy spice, again some root vegetables fresh from the rent, Lake, ginger, gentian, cocoa and a stronger orange note.
Full, spicy, dry. Delicate smokiness, a hint of peat, pepper, cocoa, rent with root vegetables, walnut shells, top! Later also gentian.
- Complex, powerful Benromach, the 57% ABV is well.
Sherry, smoke, big malt and oak, flowers and vanilla.
Powerful. Big oak, salted caramel, peat, forest fruits, cocoa.
Long, spicy, oaky.
