Pollenflug
Expert Senior Pollenflug Tasting note
19 Nov 2017 10:58 pm
Pollenflug gave this whisky 88 points
Color
Amontillad
Nose

Süßer Rauch (mit einer leichten Speckigkeit) und rote Früchte heben sich unmittelbar nach dem Einschenken aus meinem Glas. Dank der Fasssstärke (57,4%) deutet der raue Islay-Malt bereits in der Nase an, wohin die (kraftvolle) Reise gehen wird. In der Nase macht sich ein leichtes Kühlen bemerkbar, welches ich aber nicht als störend empfinde. Nach einigen Minuten schenke ich dem Malt meine volle Aufmerksamkeit: Honigsüßer Lagerfeuerrauch mit leichten Räuchernoten, Kirschen, dunkle Beeren und Früchte, reichlich Karamell, Anklänge von Kräutern, Eichenwürze und maritime Noten (Salz & Jod) bilden eine vielschichtige und ausbalancierte Aromenkonstellation.

Taste

Der raue Islay-Malt schlägt zu! Unmittelbar nach dem 1. Schluck malträtiert eine heftige Pfeffrigkeit kurzfristig meine Zungenspitze, während mein gesamter Mundraum mit süßem Rauch geflutet wird. Die weiche Textur regt angenehm den Speichelfluss an. Der Rauch (eine Mischung aus kalter Asche und Teer) setzt zu Beginn ein dominates Ausrufezeichen. Nach kurzer Zeit gewinnen die süß-würzigen Aromen zunehmend an Intensität und vermischen sich mit dem Rauch. Das aromatische Grundgerüst umfasst weiterhin kräftigen Rauch, Karamellbonbons, Himbeeren, Kirschen, dunkle Beeren, geröstetes Malz, würzige Eichenholznoten und maritime Aromen (Salz & Jod). Durch die Hinzugabe von einigen Tropfen Wasser wirkt der Malt etwas fruchtiger und harmonischer, ohne allerdings an geschmacklicher Intensität zu verlieren.

Finish

Mittelang bis lang, wärmend und weiterhin intensiv. Süße Fruchtnoten verblassen  allmählich, ehe frisch gemahlener Pfeffer, Kräuter, würzige Eichenholznoten, maritime Aromen und der kräftige Rauch den Malt ausklingen lassen. Am Gaumen entsteht eine leichte Trockenheit.

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Smoke, some new make, iodine, salt, mineral, tar, dry.

Taste

Smoky, sweet and dry. Some TCP, salt, machine oil, tar, rubbery iodine.

Finish

Long. Having a bonfire with tar and rubbery iodine.

Comments

Almost the same malt like the Ileach, but here you got more sherry flavor for your money. Tastewise the Skulls are most of all identical.

Concerning price/performance ratio: 8/10

Nose

Eine kräftige Portion Rauch kommt gleich zu Beginn: sehr fruchtiger, ungemein süßer, speckiger Rauch gepaart mit ledrigen Aromen, es folgt eine sehr schön ausgeprägte medizinische Note: Leukotape, Mullbinde, Krankenhaus und Iod, dann zeigt sich sehr deutlich der maritime Einschlag (Salz, Iod), schließlich folgen Zitrone, Gras und eine Kräuternote; der Alkohol ist da, stört aber nicht ...

Taste

Starker Rauch am Gaumen! Asphalt, Teer und kalter Rauch nehmen den Mundraum ein; dann stark medizinisch ausgeprägt, der maritime Einschlag ist nun deutlicher, Salz mit Zitrone kommen daher, weniger Fruchtakzente als in der Nase und schließlich eine für mich sehr stark ausgeprägte trockene, grasige, herbe Kräuternote;

Finish

Wärmend, kräftig, trocken, adstringierend, viele Kräuter, mittellang - spät zündend aber ziemlich mächtig!

Comments

Die Nase verspricht wunderbare furchtige Aromen, am Gaumen jeodoch dreht sich fast alles um den Kräutergarten im Krankenhaus;
Intensiv aber nach meinem Geschmack nicht so wunderbar nuancenreich wie der Skull #1;
