    Here is already the third selection of Bruce Farquhar, knowing that the fourth, a Tobermory arrived just after. I hope I can taste it also in the near future. The previous traffic jam was an absolutely phenomenal Bruichladdich, aged in a sherry cask. We stay on Islay with this version that makes me think of the famous Anagrams of The Nectar, Avian Gull being none other than Lagavulin, no need to look at Motus to put the letters in the right order. Avian Gull literally means Avian Gull, a seagull that appears discreetly on the label, almost escaping my attention. Normally Dramfool is expected to announce the bottling of a 52-year-old Carsebridge very soon, as a rare bottle will only be available in 50 bottles. With an alcohol volume of 40.8% this very old grain whisky, coming from an extinct distillery the same year that Port Ellen will trade at 225 pounds, a price more than reasonable it seems to me. http://sebwhisky.over-blog.com/2017/05/avian-gull-by-dramfool.html
    • Nose
      Ahh this inimitable, incomparable peat of Islay. From the outset it causes this emotion that we call all our wishes. It is an island, which I would like to tread the soil, who extends our arms. This dram is honey, vanilla, but also spray. It has the consistency that sweet butter could have. On the other hand the alcohol level is totally imperceptible, but probably the monster is hidden under some rock, ready to pounce. There is a herbaceous presence, perhaps of liquorice, as well as lemon peels. Here the water will not be decisive, it will melt the aromas, letting all the more speak its lemon character.
    • Taste
      And finally the monster is very tender with our taste buds, the alcohol is beautifully integrated. A fire will be able to fully fill our mouth, intense and pleasant. Then his youth has undoubtedly captured the benefits of his cradle of oak, with vanilla and honey still. The second gulp will reveal a more astringent, woody, slightly vegetal facet that will accentuate the addition of a drop of water.
    • Finish
      Smoke always, vegetable and bitter then. Dry, woody.
