Nose

Helle tropische Früchte, Ananas, Papaya, Mango, Banane, auch Birnen, grasig, Minze, Honig, Kokos, Zitronenverbene, Blumenwiese, Gänseblümchen, Kamille, Minze, Klebstoff - braucht dringend viel Zeit im Glas, bis er klar wird und sich öffnet

Taste

Prickelnder Antritt, süß und cremig, ölig; sofort Fruchtexplosion - Ananas, Maracuja, Zitrone, Grapefruit, Melone, grüner Tee, Zitronenmelisse, Blumenwiese; mineralisch, weißer Pfeffer, Zimt, Kardamom, dunkle Schokolade, (kokos)nussig, dann Minze, Olivenöl

Finish

mittellang, Ananas, Zimt und Pfeffer, Kokosnuss, am Ende die Minze

Comments

Braucht viel Zeit im Glas. Sehr fruchtiger Antritt wie bei einem 73er-Speysider, allerdings fehlt die Vielschichtigkeit des Schotten. Lecker!

Frais, avec des notes végétales (foin) qui ont tendance a dominer les fruits exotiques.

Taste

Attaque en douceur, toucher super délicat, crémeux. Un chouia acidulé, épicé. Pêche blanche. 

Finish

Avec des fruits exotiques. Longueur respectable.

Superbe nez sur les fruits exotiques et le sirop de sucre. Il y a un petit côté bonbon très agréable. Au niveau des fruits on retrouve principalement, de la mangue, de l'ananas et de l'abricot. Un nez clairement gourmand avec derrière une brume végétale et quelques arômes boisés.

Taste

L'attaque est légère même si cela monte rapidement et crescendo. Il y a de l'exotisme et de la poire. Nous retrouvons ce petit côté bonbon qu'il y avait au nez mais de façon beaucoup plus discrète. L'ensemble est plutôt sec en bouche avec des épices et une fin "citrique". C'est moins gourmand qu'au nez.

Finish

Belle longueur sur les fruits exotiques tout d'abord puis arrivent le boisé, les épices  et une très légère amertume. Un soupçon de vanille se balade sur la fin.

Comments

Un nez fabuleux, malheureusement la bouche n'est pas à la hauteur et entraine une déception légitime. L'ensemble reste bien fait mais souffre de la comparaison avec certains "Irish" sortis récemment.

Serge gave it 91 points ! 

Ireland 27 yo 1990/2017 (48%, Maltbarn, The Malt Clan, bourbon, 206 bottles) Five stars In theory, this should be pretty unbeatable… Colour: straw. Nose: the 2003, minus the sour/dry sherry, plus a much better polishing. Pistachio cream, mango jam, aloe, perhaps a little bacon (really), some cake straight from the bakery (raisin cake?) and, above everything, some very precious blue-green tea. Very subtle and delicate, less extravagantly fruity than other casks of this make. After ten minutes, there, passion fruits, pink grapefruits, and wet chalk. Mouth: only one major flaw, I was expecting this, while I do like surprises. Otherwise, we have passion fruits, mangos, a wee touch of salt, a feeling of clay, melissa water… And all that. Finish: medium, pure, and extremely fresh. A wee touch of litchi and pineapple in the aftertaste. Comments: luminous and refreshing. Yeah, most sadly, as expected – but we shan’t complain, shall we? SGP:651 - 91 points.

Nez hyper fruité légèrement pâtissier sur l'ananas et le kiwi.


L'attaque est hyper fruité ananas banane avec ensuite un joli végétale sur fond d'epice type cannelle.


Arrivé ensuite une vague de fruité type cognac presque aqueux très frais avec un peu de citron. 


La fin de bouche se relève être boisé type exotique et épicé avec un gros retour des fruits exotiques qui explosent dans la bouche et font vibrer les papilles jusque dans le haut palais.


La finale dans un premier temps s'essouffle puis reviens franchement sur le fruit ananas encore et papaye puis une note minérale de Pierre chaude viens après l'extinction de la puissance des fruits.


Reste en bouche les fruits comme s'ils avaient été cuit à point.


Réclame de l'aération et du temps 


Plutôt complexe et vif
