maltdude Tasting note

Color
Old gold
Nose

Peat smoke. Reminds me of a rubber shoe sole of a new shoe. Lemon zest, berries, some butter, vanilla, tar, sea salt, sea breaze, rosemary.

Taste

Creamy and oily. Starting with some nice peat smoke that fills the mouth. Tangy and peppery. Some tobacco.

Finish

The peat smoke still stays in your mouth, becoming a little dryer. Spicy and tangy. Mouthwatering. Sour. A long aftertaste with some bitter chocolate in the end. Maybe even some bitte oranges. Warming as it runs down the throat.

Comments

Neat stuff. Recommended.

Gin clear
Nose

Stark i lukten och svår att ta ut lukter då den höga % tar över lite.

Men lukter finns och kommer fram mycket mer med ett par droppar vatten.
Lite pepprig doft.

Taste

Stark direkt i både mage mun och hals,hög % smak med eftersmak som lutar mycket åt peppar.

Lång brännande,det pepprig ligger kvar men med en dov godhet?
Finish

Pepprig och brännande.

Hänger kvar länge.
Comments

En mycket god ardbeg.

Nose

very smoky, very tarry. brine and olives, camphor. a grapefruit in the background. gym socks. initially a little harsh but that´s getting better with some time in the glass.

Taste

very smoky, very tarry, slightly briny. it starts almost sweet but getting drier very soon. water improves it still a little and makes it more accessible.

Finish

long, smoky , tarry , warming

Comments

had it head to head with uigeadaill and I find both have a similar quality though they are different.
