Ardmore Traditional Cask
Personal Comment
Quite a dry nose marked by peat and some fruity hints on the background, which nicely tempers the impression of austerity left by the first nose. As the aeration goes along, the fruity side of this whisky gets more importance.
In the mouth a nice taste too, both fresh (fruits) and dry (peat) with this pleasant mix of dry bitterness and fresh acidity. Not really complex, but interesting by the diversity of tastes, even if they remain on a limited palette.
At the finish, fruit seems to overcome. Quite a nice finish, not very long but very pleasant.

Comment by Johannes_Sauer
App.: Amber (colouring added)
Nose: A very malty nose seems to announce a promising dram: Whalenuts and orange peel are the first impression. Later there are raisins and soft floral notes combined with lingering smoke. Porridge with marmalade. Everything here is backed by firm, round and gripping malt.
Taste: The smoke steps more in the foreground, peat is very harmoniouisly blended with oakwood and malt. The fruity impression is nearly lost on the palate but gives place to soft, bitter cocoa powder. The 46% are always very discretly hidden in the back and not at all intruding.
Finish: This is the only soft disapointment after a very good start on nose and mouth: Rather short but soft, bitter and dry.
Conc.: This seems to be a very good companion stay with for a long ! and gregarious night.

Commentaire de Walter Steimel
Color: medium amber....no age statement on the bottle....color is a bit darker than I expected.
Nose: smoke, honey, caramel....not a very strong nose...
Taste: honey, wet dirt, smoke, toffee, maybe something sweet in the middle with some chocolate, honey with a little lemon...nice peat, but not overwhelming, very enjoyable....with water, the taste is more sweet; deadens the smoke flavor some, more mellow....I think I will take it without the water.
Finish: short, but rich with smoke.  
Value for money this one is hard to beat!!!.....can easily stand with a Talisker 10 or a Ben Riach 10 Curiositas

Comment by Blackmalt
Color: gold
Discrete and fresh nose and (traditional praline ice with small pieces). It takes time to open. I feel that something is hidden behind aeration, but it's too quiet for now. After aeration (finally it opened quickly) the smell of coffee are present with a texture becomes more waxy (clay Play-Doh well warmed in hand (hmm, those memories ...)) and discretely fruity.
I appreciate!

Mouth slightly sparkling in attack. Rather fluid and fresh. A different approach in terms of flavor because it seems to be more "baking" with a taste of brioche. Not galette des rois Brioche with pieces of candied angelica. And for that matter, why not add a taste of yeast. While delicacy by cons. It is melted and enjoyable. A clear taste of cereals is noticeable in the mid-palate with a reminder of the clay nose.

Final in the same tone as the mouth brioche. Unfortunately, it lacks biting persistence. Hum? A bit of dry peat at the end of course? It looks like so ...

Comment: The nose, delicate and well balanced, direct me back to childhood with the smell of dough (I keep smelling this nearly empty sample ))! Too bad it lacks a little punch. But honestly, I can not blame him because of the memories that it sends me back:) The mouth remains as enjoyable as the nose. More expressive, it also is more greedy than the latter. But the final makes me decrease the note ... Too bad I can not find it as good as the rest .... I think with a few% more, the whisky would have taken a good 90 ... Ore even more. Very nice whisky in any case!

Color: Gold
Nose: Very nice nose on discrete peat nicely mixed with citrus and marine notes.
Some notes of vanilla and pepper in the background.
Palate: The peat is present in the mouth, less balanced.
Attack on the cold ashes, then it becomes more fruity and sweet.
Then moving on spices.
Finish: Long a nice mix of peat / fruit

Comment by Corbuso
Colour: Gold.
Nose: Peaty to very peaty, slightly farmy, rather subtle, maritime, on hemp rope and slightly vanilla notes. Very pleasant without the harshness or dryness usually associated with peated whiskies.
Taste: Rich, peaty, salty, maritime, on iodine, some disinfectant, seaweeds and tobacco, with a pleasant oakiness. Pleasantly balanced, with slight fishy notes. The finish is medium to long, peaty, maritime, slightly salty, rather round and mellow, oaky, on vanilla, seaweeds, some iodine and liquorice root.
Impression: A very Islay-like profile with the nice rich and complex peaty notes associated with sea brine and other maritime influence. The mellowness offers a soft delivery of the peat and generates a most pleasant balance to this whisky.

Comment by mapi
Color: bright yellow

Fresh nose with a hint of iodine. The aromas are floral and very elegant. Alcohol is well controlled. Everything is very pleasant and well balanced.

The palate has a slightly oily texture with hints of licorice (Cachou Lajaunie). Alcohol is present without being intrusive. The balance is retained. The retro-olfaction is with notes of white chocolate.

The finish is smooth. Again the balance alcohol flavor lasts. This is a very attractive whisky.

Comment by ttn
Nose: very smooth approach, acacia honey, peat, wood fire. Not the least aggressivity in this dram, all in reserve. With aeration, I perceive as a floral touch.
Taste: Very expressive. The first moments, it is first sweet ... but very quickly the smoke takes over, rather medicinal! Ash in the background with a little apple and lemon.
Finish: Long, with an abundance of smoke and slightly citric. Remarkable!
Overall impression: The nose is a little behind but the mouth is very Ileach although a bit "close" (lacking a bit of consistency). Whiskey rising crescendo. It reminds me of a distillery such as Lagavulin, and even Laphroaig ...

Commentaire de Dagde
Color: Gold.

Nose: Rather powerful. Is declined on the ripe fruit (apples, pears), cooked in butter - lightly salted - with a little lemon zest. It is as much at sea (the opening help on fish, algae). A noses of both marine and sweet pastry effective and has a good density.
With water pastry character takes precedence, with notes of hazelnut and praline extra.

Mouth: Strong alcohol (after dilution), the malt is present and is allied with the pastry fruit (pear tart). Spices make all a little bitter - nutmeg, pepper -. The water changes little to profile.

Final: revival of smoked malt sprinkled with milk chocolate and marzipan. Parsimonious addition of nougat is there to cement the sweet couple. The finish is rather short compared to the expectations.

In short: A beautiful nose that deserves to be left open. Its maritime and greedy propensities are intriguing. The mouth is a powerful pn alcohol (too much) but the profile is not without interest. The finish is cons below with respect to its length.

Comment by Sebou007
Colour : Gold

Nose : We start with some floral notes, creamy honey. We continue with apple whiffs (apple liquor), vanilla (custard). Some pear as well, sweet almonds. Pretty round, very well integrated alcohol.

Mouth : We find the same roundness, with a small aftertaste of smoke or grilled almonds. Still custard, with this nice taste of vanilla. In the middle, a little sour taste undermines a little the pleasure. It remains attractive, even if it's a little plain.
After a few minutes, becomes somehow a bit herbaceous.

Finale : Medium, sweet, on grilled almonds.

Conclusion : A nice dram, a little too classic, but flawless. Not very original though.

Comment by Mars
Nose: Powerful on orchard fruit, earthy peat, damp earth, garden vegetables, lemon, orange and dried fruits. Nice balance.
After aeration, it is quiet and the peat is less present in favor of lemon / orange and a mineral note.

Taste: lemon, sweet, sticky, slightly maritime and mineral. Notes of cereal and applesauce.

Finale: The note of damp earth come back again with the lemon in the background. Also notes stewed until the spices prevail and do take precedence over the rest.

Comments: Whisky pleasant to drink but unfortunately not in the style that I like. This is lightly peated with plenty of lemon and earthy notes (wet and greasy, the earth). I would have appreciated more peat and / or fruit. Maybe bottled too young?
Aeration brings up too many high notes of pepper and cinnamon on the finish and water brings out the smoky side.

Comment by Savoureur
Appearance: Yellow gold
Nose: Medium intensity, alcohol present but not disturbing, marine freshness, flavored black tea, grainy softness, light fruity like jellies
Mouth: Low to medium intensity, well integrated alcohol, dry mouth, soft bitter (skin nuts or tea brewed too long, cereals and soft pepper in the finish
Finish: Medium
With water: Nose and mouth losing intensity without gaining in complexity
Conclusion: I like the nose better than the mouth that lack of balance in my opinion

Comment by Amor57
The first nose is malty, with low acidity, wood, and a marine character. With aeration it operates on the pine, toasted cereal, traces of honey, dried apricot, coffee. I also found some red currant jam. The acidity is confirmed, nicely balanced by the mango. The first approach is fun and intriguing. On the palate is soft and sweet and then switch quickly to the bitterness. Hints of mint and tar blend. And the bitterness is expressed in all its forms: walnut, licorice, tannins ... The finish is first on a specific licorice with caramel. A distant fruitiness does not mask a burning sensation, burning of the pepper unfortunately without the taste.
A whisky that I would call interesting but of no fun, despite my attraction to pronounced bitterness.

Comment by Piazzolla
Nose = First (too) light, fresh and pastry-like. Mineral. Lack of expressiveness.
Mouth: sweet and moving on a slight bitterness. Very aromatic.
The final not more present than the mouth.
conclusion
This WDTS is quite disturbing because (too) uniform by the lack of expression of the majority of participants. This sample has no default, but provides no specific pleasure.

Comment by Canis_Lupus
Colour: Straw yellow, white wine.
Nose: Nose first sour and alcohol, malty, then almost nothing. Restarts on herbaceous notes, old dried hay, plant, vetiver, notes cheese or farmer rather discreet in the background. The impression of alcohol eventually fade after a few minutes, but the nose is very strange. In previous notes have been added the praline, cream dessert with pistachio, the financier, white bread. All this makes a rather confusing mixture, though not unpleasant
Mouth: creamy, sweet, progressive, peat, a kind of bitter sweet (chicory?)
Final: In the wake of the mouth

Comments: Quite a strange whisky, which is expressed on unusual notes , although not unpleasant to the nose. The mouth and the final are, against, very much less interesting. The addition of water off the nose, softened mouth even more and enhances the bitterness in the final.

Comment by Jean-Michel
Color: Medium gold.

Nose: Quite phenolic and quite decent. This one was probably drawn from a Bourbon cask, and significantly reduced (43%?). It starts on light peat and quickly develops on soft notes of mashed plantain, orange juice, and an exotic touch (hint of guava?). Careful: Some fruit there is, but in homeopathic doses. Don’t expect a huge exotic blast! Unfolds on fresh putty, not unlike some Caol Ilas middle-age bottlings.

Mouth: The peat is subtle and delicately fruity (orange toffee), sweet and “easy” but never weak. Good mouthfeel despite the reduction. A little touch of violet in the mid-palate. An additional drop of water enhances fruity aromas ala Ardmore.

Finish: Turns to charcoal and ends rather bitter.

Comment: A rather delicate and fruity peaty malt. Pleasant, even if it won’t be enough for me to go up the wall.

Comment by Jmputz
Colour: Old gold
The nose is clearly marked by peat. It is relatively austere at first and then appear quite discrete notes of vanilla and a hint of ripe fruit.
Peat is also present in the mouth, feeling of milk chocolate. A bit monolithic. Evolves relatively slowly to bitter notes
The finish is initially quite powerful, strangely dominated by a kind of acid peat (although the feeling was definitely not present in the mouth). But it vanishes relatively quickly and is of medium length.

Comment by Arno
Nose: first impression mixed. Hints of peat mixed with weird smell: something between a baby's scent, blazed bananas, solvent, cornflakes, a scented candle, old dried flowers ... In the second test, I find this a much more peat with notes of licorice and "cachou", mixed with coated pill & candy. A touch of lemon too. Strange notes not far, unfortunately... Better but still not good.
Mouth: very poor, with an attack on "the scented soap in a pool of water on the soap dish". Sickly sweet with strange notes found on the nose, bordering on rude. Ends with the peat. At the second session, it's a more assertive peat, but remembering some rather bitter tea brewed too. But I still find these unpleasant flavors mid-palate ...
Finale: It's better, more traditional (smoke & spice)
Conclusion: an experiment gone bad? A profile I do not like? Some elements that remind me of the Ardmore one in the previous WDTS session ... The second attempt was better without being converted.

Comment by Alexandre
The nose is dominated by pastry flavors. Fairly light and without much relief, we can feel amid the dominant spice which will tend to disappear, rubber and paper pulp. A slight peat? Anyway, it's pretty austere and linear. Aeration allows the appearance of citrus (oranges at first, then lemon), sugar and very light vanilla, it is true not helped by the collapse of the nose due to good ventilation.

The palate is nice, on very greedy chocolate liquor. Subsequently, it has yeast, cereal and paper pulp. The set is very soft and very austere. Alcohol is also present. After aeration, it has also a little smoke. But all is through.

The medium length final, is dominated by yeast and light pastry flavors. It also has fruit and spices.

In conclusion, a whisky too sweet and austere for my taste.

The colour is yellow (straw), the nose well balanced, sweet and perfumed is marked by fruity, malted and vegetal hints.
The palate is rich and oily and confirms the touches detected by the nose, but there are some new floral and citrus fruit (orange) hints.
The long and elegant finish is fruity and mentholated.

Personal Comment
The single malts of the Ardmore distillery are not very easy to find, as the main part of the production is used in blends. However, some independent bottles like Signatory market sometimes Ardmore bottlings. The Signatory's Unchill-filtered collectionis one of my favourites. The quality of Ardmore is excellent, and not being chill filtered allows the whisky to exhale lots of fragrances. An excellent bottle in an excellent collection.
79/100
The second tasting of this single malt revealed all the complexity of the fragrances and the tastes, accentuated by the non chill filtration. A slight acidity behind some characteristic malt hints and a very nice finish, whit a slightly acid character, make form this bottle an excellent bottle. ..
84/100
The very complex nose is marked by spices and ripe fruits. In the mouth a real explosion of flavours, going from malt to citrus fruits through spices. A real fragrances festival. An exceptional finish, lingering and spicy, but rather fresh. An exceptional bottle.

Personal Comment
The nose evokes green apple, some spices on a smoky background. A great freshness, somewhere between cut grass and mint appears furtively, before making room for a touch of liquorice. A very nice nose anyway. In the palate, the first impression is dry peat, developing quickly on fruity hints, with however an impression of bitterness and acidity remaining in the mouth. The finish is lingering and continues on the mouth style, between smoothness of malt, bitterness of walnut and acidity of citrus fruits.

A very interesting nose where fruits (bananas?) on a fresh cut grass field compete with slightly peated and slightly smoky touches. In the palate, some sweet and malty notes, very pleasant and warm, however without a great complexity. But those nice notes do not need fireworks to please the papilla's. The finish is very nice to, recalling some oily peat and maybe a remote hint of chocolate (?)
84/100
A clear fruity and very fresh nose. A touch of malt and citrus fruit. Green apple and a discrete hint of exotic fruit. A very nice mouth, fruity and slightly acid, like acid drop. Very light nutty hints, cashew nuts, very smooth. The finish is slightly bitter, not too long with a discrete touch op peat.

Ardmore 1977 Scott's selection
Colour: white wine. Nose: rather more expressive right at first nosing, with quite some peat smoke again (but it’s more subdued here, I guess Arsmore increased its peat level at the turn of the 90’s), some very nice mineral notes again but, mostly, much more fruits (peaches and melons) and waxy notes. Beehive, mastic, tar, fresh crushed almonds… Gets also a little resinous, with whiffs of fresh oak, vanilla, maybe fern… And always a superb smoke (rather white wood smoke). Excellent. Mouth: really powerful but superbly balanced, with a very waxy and resinous attack. There is some peat but it’s not too prominent here. Again, there’s quite some salt that sort of underlines the notes of mastic, marzipan, olive oil, propolis, cough candies… Very interesting! Notes of burnt herbs, tequila (nice with salt), maybe Chartreuse… A very unusual profile, not unlike, yes, a peated tequila + some salt. The finish is rather long, waxy and salty… Again, very interesting and… good! 87 points.
( Serge Valentin )
Personal Comment
The nose is very pleasant, even if it is first rather discrete but enhances quickly. A light smell of smoke, peat and bee wax. Some fruit as well. In the palate, some liquorice hints on a peaty background.A general salty but very pleasant impression. A nice lingering finish prolongs the mouth.
84/100
Very nice floral nose with clear menthol and pepper notes. A hint of peat. Very fresh nose with nice spicy fragrances.
In the palate, the same acid freshness dominates first and then the mouth develops slowly on fruity notes while keeping this acid touches and a clear presence of alcohol.
The finish is lingering and fresh, with a nice memory of green apple.

The nose is clearly on citrus fruits, and more precisely on orange skin. Pleasant, sweet and slightly acid. The mouth is fresh too, with citrus hints and a veil of smoke. Just a veil, not like other versions of this distillery which make ist sometimes difficult to make the difference with an Islay malt. Just a light veil behind the citrus hints. The taste is not so easy to describe, but it tastes a bit like chocolate. The finish is lingering, and perfectly in the mood of the mouth, with this orange chocolate character.

Nice nose characterised by some contrasted flavours of Marshmallow and spices. Some fruity hints come in addition to those first impressions.
The mouth is fresh and rather complex, mixing nice fresh acid notes to some discrete hints of smoke. Alcohol is rather dominating however.
The finish is fresh and quite long, but here too alcohol presence is close to be hindering.

The nose is clearly marked by the freshness of cut grass with fruity hints (pear). Some Marshmallow on the background. In the palate, an pleasant complexity, mixing fruity hints (pear, peach) to honey and a background of malted barley. The finish is marked by honey and is quite long and fresh. After a while, some smoky hints seem to appear. Amazing as no smoke at all was detected by this nose nor by the mouth.

Nice nose with fresh fruity notes, green apple with a hint of smoke. Nice complexity to come...
The first mouth is fresh, with minty notes added to the fruit which was already present at the nose. A kind of metallic acidity, far from being unpleasant comes after a while. Interesting palate, even if the nose was did make expect some more of it...
The finish is of medium length and this kind of not easy to describe metallic acidity seems to dominate.

Quite a nice fruity nose (ripe banana's), fresh and relatively complex. Nice smoothness and some late notes of peat and smoke.
The mouth is rather different from the nose, with it's chocolate motes completing the fruity ones which dominated the nose. Here too, nothing wrong. Very pleasant mouth, slightly more complex than the nose was. Discrete bitterness. Nice whole.
The finish is long and warm, and the mouth impressions are still present, specially the slightly bitter chocolate.
84/100
Very nice nose, fruity while presenting discrete smoky notes and some bitter hints, walnut and a touch of woody influence. A banana with coffee and milk.
The first impression in the palate is very pleasant. This malt presents a nice complexity, even if the papilla's have to play with relatively close tastes, dominated by hazelnut and a touch of chocolate.
Lingering and warm finish, obviously present. The chocolate, or toasted malt notes clearly dominate the whole. An excellent finish.
Very nice bottle for a very friendly price.

Colour: Pale yellow
The nose is marked by a slight smell of solvent, and hints of leather and is a bit spoiled by tingling which fortunately disappears after a few moments. Not very complex although floral notes complete the picture after a few minutes.
The mouth is little more complex than the nose, even if it is in a very different register. First acid evolves slowly towards woody notes. Pleasant without being extraordinary.
The finish is quite long, begins with notes of milk chocolate before slowly fading after passing through a slightly woody phase, with hints of hazelnut.

Comment by ALouis
Color: straw yellow
Nose: That whisky is very delicate, subtle and elegant.
The nose is slightly smoky, vanilla and a little finely spiced.
With aeration some fruits appear, apple, peach and very ripe pear.
It becomes more and more floral and sweet with hints waxy.
Taste: What a treat to the palate, it is also fine and balanced.
You have a fairly amount of fruit, grapefruit, peach, citrus and a touch of vanilla.
In the mouth too this slight woody smoke brings a nice complexity.
The finish is beautiful floral notes on the heath.
Long finish between citrus acidity and hints of salt.

Nose: Huge fruity with vanilla and light peat.
Taste: Fruity and sweet. Lots of lemon and grapefruit. It is also slightly bitter with green bananas.
Finish: Fruity exotic to the Benriach 1976 (although lighter than Benriach). The fruit is mixed with a light peat. It is highly regulated with a lot of spices.
The finish is very long.

Colour: Straw
Nose: Peat, fruit and great elegance. Phenols Aae identified immediately, but rarely phenols expressed themselve with such gentleness, freshness and restraint. Nothing catchy, and perfect integration with a very natural fruity .Gallons of orange juice freshly squeezed, and the cool but a bit bland so nice carambola (star fruit). An almost translucent lightness and free of any alcoholic footprint, all that could be considered distant and not very expressive is rather strangely mesmerizing.
Palate: The attack is mild, delicately vanilla. First, a feeling of high dilution a little frustrating but not surprising after the nose. Then it's divine surprise, if not the miracle: Alcohol, for the first time, affirmed. Mouth, while remaining extremely fluid, gains in power and structure. And above all, this small friendly and pleasant malt turns into bomb worthy of the finest exotic Benriach, gorged with passion fruit and guava, beautifully set off by a return of a peat gently liquoriced.
Final: Turns off quietly on cold ashes and a slight bitterness.
Comment: One of peaty whiskeys "all age groups" of the most enjoyable time. I buy!.

The nose is fine and subtle. Peat and smoke rather discreet align themselves with nice mineral notes (old stone) and a light fruitiness (dried exotic fruits).
On the palate, the attack is mild and sweet, finely peated on barley and dried fruit notes. The mouth is very pleasant and the finish is rather long, and flawless, even if it is low power.

Nose: a little (too) gentle, fruit salad (exotic?), the burnt side of the wood, a bit of marzipan, too. Probably (too) reduced. Powdered. At the second tasting, evolves on medicine notes (velpo bands) and subtle rose!
Taste: Very fruity & exotic, moderately long even if a little progressive, a little cereal too, is to bad it is has been reduced!
Final: relatively short but enjoyable

Nose: Sweet, fruity with a nice freshness married with a fine peat. Quite mineral, light smoke. The fruits are increasingly present, especially apples and peaches. Grapefruit too. A little vanilla too. Clean. Nice complexity.
Taste: Powerful, mainly on peat, smoke and salt. Then come the fruits, apples, peaches, oranges and vanilla. Slight bitterness with hints of grapefruit. Then finally come the spices, including white pepper.
Finish: Long, in the continuity of the mouth, slightly smoky, iodine, spicy with some freshness (chlorophyll)

Comment by Alexandre
The nose is dominated by the smell of citrus (lemon) and herbaceous plants (heather, fresh grass). A little alcohol at first, but fades quickly. Very mild and pleasant, it emerges after aeration a nice complexity. There is always an atmosphere herb, medicinal hints (ether?), oilseeds (almond) and a floral touch. The set is pretty cool. A nice complexity, so even if the nose is difficult to stabilize.

The palate begins with heather and cereals. Freshness is expected , like the nose, when farm notes appear, making this whisky go to a farmer register / herbaceous / woody much more robust and assertive, despite a suspected low alcohol percentage. Powerful farm notes, very bitter chocolate, cheese well ripened , cereals (wheat) come up to the mouth chewy one side and sticky. A like it or hate it like it.

The finish is quite long, on cereals, chocolate and bitter, still that touch of heather. A hint of salt medicinal side comes and close the show.

In short, a powerful whisky in your mouth, but more with its aromas that his alcohol level. I have nothing against it.

The nose is reserved, sweet but young, opens with a fresh fruitiness - pear - cereal,s a trace of peat? A hint of marzipan, hint of hay, floral.
On the palate, the attack is fresh on cereal, and then a wave of fresh passion fruit, pepper, mustard, a little salty (sea breeze). In the final, cereal, passion fruit, I had a clear note of lychee evanescent.

Color: white gold pearl.
Nose: nose 1st vegetal, lightly woody. Some almond notes appear, also some pastry, but it quickly loses most of his expressiveness to to become extremely discreet. Too discreet.
The addition of water and aeration reveal notes of white bread and the aroma enhances somewhat previously perceived ones.
Palate: The attack is very soft and smooth. As an extension of the nose, but better than it. Slightly aniseed.
There too, a little water exacerbates the mouth somewhat, without truly changing the profile.
Final: Start immediately on a astringent note rather surprising and amazingly elegant. Peat is found, as well as new notes of bitter almond.
Adding water reduces greatly the final

Nose: Pretty fresh, fragrant (floral, flower orchards), honey aroma and a light scent that accompanies any medical.
Taste: Not much alcohol (43/46%),very oily appearance, then comes a taste some fruity acidity like blueberry and a strong sensation of almond. Slight bitterness in the finish, all backed by a discrete peat.
Final: Still the oiliness on the palate, still bitter almonds, a touch some oak.

Appearance: clear Riesling, thin legs that flow faster
Nose: medium intensity, moderately well-integrated alcohol, medicinal (adhesive plaster), fruity (pear, plum, ...) smoke and dry peat, accompaniment (not dominant)
Taste: Mild, aqueous attack, after a mixture of peat, spice and sweet fruit but all on a background of bitterness.
Finale: Short to medium
Conclusion: For me this whisky has a great imbalance between the nose and mouth with a large preference for me for the nose.

Colour: Pale yellow
The nose is immediately fruity, with aromas of green fruit mingling a bit abruptly with hints of vanilla. A slight tingling strikes slightly the pleasure. After a few moments It fortunately disappears and the smell of cut grass now seems to hover over the nose that gradually loses its intensity, at least if you hold the glass at a distance.
A strange bitterness following a first significantly acidulated and fruity attack. The taste of green fruit, or more accurately the tastes of sour candy that was initially dominant for a few seconds disappear as if by magic to give way to bitterness and quickly ... nearly nothing.
The finish is in the perfect extension of the evolution of the mouth, where a rapid degradation of the sensations described perfectly the evolution of this whisky.
However, discretion is transformed into a pleasant bitterness, and after this rather spectacular collapse in the mouth, this finish seems to save the whole by an unexpected length.

The first nose is malty with hints of pear and wood. Quite still , distant, this whisky has perhaps suffered from its stay in the bottle, then leave him the time to express itself. Aeration confirms this diaphanous impression. Hints of peat, pear, and rare spices complement the first picture. On the palate, the attack is evasive, with traces of spices, , marked alcohol peat and . H
ere and there, emerging yellow fruits, caramel, vanilla. The final is of average length and low-intensity first hand on the peat, that enriched by spices, exotic fruits like mango, papaya and chadeck licorice and a nice end.

appearance: Riesling
nose: Medium to strong intensity, well-integrated alcohol, cheese (Camembert, Munster) (it's very nice for those who, like me, like that kind of cheese), sea air, medicinal (antiseptic), farmer (straw in barn) smoke and peat in the background
Taste: Medium to strong intensity, smoke and dry peat dominate but they leave place for the farmers, sailors and antiseptic aromas. Exactly the opposite of the nose
finish: average
With water: Slightly less intense on the nose and the palate, a little bitterness in the mouth, I like less with water
conclusion: An interesting and well balanced whisky .It takes time to articulate. I really like.

Comment by Jean-Michel
Colour: Straw.
Nose: Phenolic and fuity. A mix of dust, cold ashes, and lemon sweet (Haribo crocodiles, the yellow ones). And quite some alcohol, but well mastered. Then, turns more complex, becoming really interesting now. Some dirty and farmy notes ala Brora (stable, horse dung, argan oil) mingle with some nice soft and discreet hints of fudge that could come from a refill butt. Rustic veggies (all kind of tubers). Chestnut.
Mouth: Starts sweet and creamy, with nearly no peat at that point. Then, the peat develops with some balm aromas. The alcohol grows bigger (probably over 55%), but never bites. Then we go on with some green lemon peel that makes it tastier.
Finish: Long, getting slightly rooty and with a hint of anise.
Comment: A beautiful old style peaty farmy malt that requires your attention or you may let it pass you by.

Color: light yellow
Nose with a hint of smoke a nice fresh seaweed. Great finesse. Very nice. Very strong impression of Manzana (green apple).
The palate is oily, almost chewable. This causes a small loss of sharpness and the disappearance of the smoke. La manzana is strongly present, but the green apple becomes compote. The texture is consistent and frieze some softness.
The finish is medium length. It returns to the freshness. Whisky found the tone with spicy alcohol. The smoke is back.
Without that feeling of softness in the middle palate that would be a good whiskey. All is however very nice and cozy.

Comment by Alexandre
The nose opens with a strange feeling of play-dough, followed by paint and citrus. It's a bit strong. There’s also a little of salt and wax. It’s rather heterogeneous in fact. Aeration put all in order, where a beautiful dominant wood dust, reminiscent of a sawmill, accented with spicy aromas and medicinal (ether) is being set up. All this becomes appropriate, before ventilation continues its work, mixing the dominant peaks of peat and cereal. The water makes it softer, and reveals notes of heady flowers.

Mouth, slightly watery at first, is of farm and grain, with a little citrus. We must wait a little before this whisky reveals its true potential and put forward powerful farm moist and rustic grades, without being intrusive. It is well controlled. It also has milk chocolate in attack, but also a hint of minerality on the finish. Water highlights the red fruit on the attack.

The final average is the scene of a beautiful farm alliance between the notes of the mouth and the smoke of barbecue. Aeration allows subtle notes of mineral and vegetal to appear, leaving a sensation of moisture. We keep a memory of strange bitterness.

In conclusion, an interesting whisky, with with farming notes at their best. I like it.

Colour: Straw
Nose: Special, but interesting, it has aromas of well-refined volume of sheep cheese mixed with a thoroughly nice peat smoke. A slightly fruity touch (pear, apple) completes the rustic but tasteful whole. Still as pleasant during the second tasting.
Palate: The alcohol is well integrated. The palate is fat, salted, smoked, with farmy notes in the continuity of the nose. It also has a slight fruity (pear again). No notable changes between the two tastings.
Finish: Quite long, but mostly not too peaty smoke, always with the notes of Tomme of ewe.
Conclusion: A malt probably young but well done. Peat seemed rather continental, for what that means.

Comment by Arno
The nose reveals a peaty malt. Some peat, and its procession of smoke, herbs, leather, pepper, tar. I find a little violet or cherry also. The peat comes along with cereal notes, with fruits (apple, plum?) and of fine iodized and mineral notes (wet rock). The whole is rather exciting, and the fruity, bringing freshness, comes to balance the peat, which finally makes rather discreet.
With aeration, emanations of yeast were very odd.
In mouth, it is finally the fruit which stands out, on the plum, and also flowers (violet? Geranium?), everything which reminds me a brandy. Then declines the peat, light, the leather and the salt, the pepper and the smoke, to finish more wisely on the dry wood, the coffee with milk and the rock. Very pleasant.
Either a little peated whisky, or a young peaty ? The mouth pleased a lot me, with a beautiful evolution, in spite of accents of young whiskey, not so disagreeable in the end. Just a little age in more to make a great one ?

The nose is quite complex, made of bitter tea and rather austere fruity notes. somewhat difficult to define but intriguing and enjoyable smell floats in the background. Some gentian air. This whisky seems to play a very special record. Notes of cut grass appear after aeration.
The mouth is first rather bitter, gentian impression of the nose seems to be developing here. Relatively complex, it mixes the bitter notes with fresher scent of dried cut grass
The finish is discreet at first and then rises slightly more powerful, still on that freshness-bitterness duality. A taste of honey candy seems to appear after a few moments.

Nose: Fairly quiet, first floral, then the presence of alcohol masks somewhat the aromas of flowers, apple, anise with a very slight hint of smoke.
Taste: Warming, acid drops flavored red fruit and herbaceous notes of geranium and orange zest.
Finish: Quite long, dry, rather bitter (notes of coffee).
Overall impression: The palate is more expressive than the nose. Makes me think more about a young malt from the Lowlands might be particularly enjoy the semi-summer periods ...

Nose quite warm at first. Very fruity and thereafter. In the register of perfectly ripe sweet pear. Perhaps the smell of sweet popcorn just hot. Too bad it is not more rich and expressive. After a while covered, I do not have very good news. It smells it is pushing sorry, dirty socks. It's not all that terrible! And fortunately, this smell is volatile! Much further, I feel a touch of the exotic behind for my taste very bland surroundings. But it so far away that it is difficult to put a name and give an accurate sense ...
Fluid and soft palate. Maybe very slightly ashy in attack. It becomes more sweet, pungent and resinous thereafter.
Final particularly flat and length more than medium.

Comment: I have not hooked up with this sample. It could have been done well, but his lack of richness and balance on the note that breaks the figure. It is a whisky that I have not finished.

Colour: Yellowish, clear apple juice, nice and oily.
Nose: In the beginning a bit biting and spritty. Later nice nifty peat (old leather armchairs) combined with citrus peel. Pleasant but lacking of complexity.
Taste: Very pungent in the beginning, strong alcohol (cask strength), some water is needed. With water still a bit overwhelming, strong smoke, but also disturbing subnotes like old bread and rusty metal. Unripe fruits. Seems to be very young to me.
Finish: Also metallic, medium long and not that pleasant. A bit too much on the sour side.
Guesswork: My guess is a young Islay malt, bottled independently from the cask.

Colour: Pale, white wine.
Nose: nose 1st acid, vinegar, of course, pungent. Notes of rotting stench of garbage. Then through grassy notes. Occasionally, a burst of delicious jammy fruit happens to be drilled to vanish soon. Bitterness. And always the bad smell of landfill that spoil everything and will even mention the slurry.
Water harmonizes the nose, but without actually removing unpleasant notes. However, beautiful floral and fruity notes finally expressed as to succeed in cleansing the nose. But not enough to completely remove odors.
Taste: Very (too?) Fat, a lot of material. There are notes on the nose perceived, unpleasant like eating in a garbage can.
Water harmonizes the mouth but we feel that he would not take much to pass the threshold of surdilution. Again, more harmony, but without achieving a pleasing result.
Finale: On the same note as the mouth and nose, it becomes astringent over time.
Water reveals a kind of bitterness and metallic mineral. A lot of smoke astringent after a few minutes.

Comment: I've been drinking bad whisky, but it was undeniable that they were whiskys. Here I do not know what I had in my glass. I just hope it was not garbage juice. Without doubt one of the worst alcohol of any type I have ever tasted. And unfortunately, the water really does not save him.

Attractive notes of barbecue ash followed by some subtle fruit notes characterize the nose. In fact it is mostly the discretion that characterizes it. The nose does not announce what will follow ...
Mouth contrasts sharply with the nose by the exuberance and the explosion of tastes, mix of acid notes (green fruit) and a nice bitterness (nuts). First fruits that evolve slowly towards the chocolate and nuts. A very pleasant development.
The finish is just amazing. Very long, it contrasts again with the mouth and nose. Here is the milk chocolate that perpetuates long the pleasure of the mouth.

Comment by Alexandre
Nose, refined, is dominated by sweet citrus (lemon) with a marine influence and peaty, sweet at first. Quickly, the peat will become bigger, making the nose more assertive, robust, rugged. This does not thereby become a monster, he continues to play on sophistication. As time passes, the peat takes up space: it is joined by smoke and cold ashes. Everything is very well integrated.

The palate is about lemon. It was then the mineral, mixed with peat and aromas farmers, and finally, a hint of tar. Maybe a little soft, however, that mouth has undeniable qualities of integration and complexity. With aeration, it becomes more sticky, more present, more intrusive with peat, a little salt, algae and traces of dark chocolate. This is certainly very good.

The final, long, is on the farm and citrus fruits (orange and lemon). It was also tar, and a little salt, which calls after aeration.

In conclusion, a very good whisky that plays on peaty tones, fresh citrus. Too bad it lacks a little in the mouth, it was perfect otherwise.

Nose: very mineral, on wet rock, wood after the rain. Beautiful notes of citrus, lemon and pink grapefruit emerge before to chain with a beautiful peat, fine smoke, and an animal side. Also a little grassy. Sweet background in halftone (grapefruit and candy floss?). Aeration brings up a some tomato!
Palate: soft, about herbs and tomato, before extend onto sweeter notes: lemon, and a beautiful sweet grapefruit, without bitterness. Then, specifies & hardens, with spices, pepper, leather, iodine, and ending with the bitumen and smoke, all in a long evolution, intense. The end is clearly on the smoked ham, with hints of animales notes.
Final: After the long passage of peat, it is the citrus returning smoothly.

Color: White Wine
Nose: Pretty fine peat in the first nose, evoking the smoke of a fire that died slowly. As it is often the case, the smoke is combined with lemon, but aeration is enhances it, and after 10/15 minutes comes an explosion of farmy flavors giving the most beautiful effect accompanied by fresh fruit (apples, pears).
Palate: At first, the rich texture is a pleasure. Alcohol, although present, is well integrated. The fine peat nose is found here, but it is not overbearing, lets talk about lemon, white fruit and allows even a hint of exoticism to express themselves fleetingly.
Finish: Long, slightly peaty, it reveals gourmand notes of milk chocolate.

Conclusion: A peaty whisky, but gently. It reminds me of Ardmore by some of its aspects.

The nose is really unprepossessing at first: roasted grains and a touch of peony or iris. Rapid change makes it very seductive, no, attractive. Fruit, tomato (the real one, that of the free garden, not the supermarket), the apple, pear, raw potato, wood ... A very nice balance. The flavors continue to evolve, to twirl: the freshness of citrus, mustard plaster on vetiver background, light salt. The more I nose, the more I appreciate. On the palate, the attack is clear on acidulated candy with strawberry, cigarette ash, mint, red fruits. The finale, a beautiful length, opens with a beautiful bitterness, a slight bitterness, and continues the palette of the mouth in a beautiful harmony.
An austere whisky , just as I like. Pleasure of every moment.

The nose opens with a hint of smoke, heather and grass. Then by opening one passes over a certain sweetness (fresh honey?) And fine notes of lilac flower with predominant.
The taste is floral. we find the lilacs and the slightly heady hyacinth. The palate has a nice frame of alcohol and a little greasy texture. The aromas and alcohol by successive waves.

Comment by Jean-Michel
Colour: Straw.
Nose: Fine and delicate peat. Very milky. Sour cream and apricot-flavoured "petit-suisse". A dash of dust and Indian ink. Straw ball. Nicely rustic and organic. Wilder, more thrilling and punchier (48%?) than an ordinary basic peaty malt. Gets sweeter with time. A chocolate square with a fine mint cream filling. This was probably drawn from a nice Bourbon cask. And it makes me want to go a bit further…
Mouth: …And I'm so glad I did! The mouth doesn't betray the nose. Full and fat on the palate, but with no heaviness. The power is under control (finally, we might be slightly ahead 50%, but in such a nice way!). Biscuity and greedy like a palet Breton. Floating islands on a generously caramelized custard. Peat is everywhere but is giving way to the other characters.
Finish: Sapid and well balanced, with no bitterness, it is sustained by the peat and the vanilla before vanishing on a delicate flowery note (violet-flavoured liquorice).

Comment: A very enjoyable peaty malt, savoury and chewy, raffish just as it should be. Remind me of the Bruichladdich Organic we could taste a little while ago, but in a more finalized version. I like it.

Comment by Canis_Lupus
Colour: White wine.
Nose: a little stuck nose first, closed. Suggests a kind of peat mineral. The hazelnut unripe . And dried fruit, nut shell, slightly dusty. A certain pungency all along that, upon reflection evokes a little iodine and salt in some seashore. Notes of mint green, slightly refreshing balance and lighten the nose. A little vegetal, on the juniper in the background, subtly herbaceous.
While one might expect that water releases that nose, that's exactly the opposite phenomenon occurs, we lose in expressiveness.
Palate: Richer than the nose, the peat is present, but in the background and allowed to express dried fruits, chestnuts, almond powder, spices (seeds).
The water makes that mouth easier, but also more mundane.
Final: In the wake of the mouth, but by basing all the flavors in the same set.
The water has nearly wiped out the final.

Comment: A peaty a bit stuck, which is struggling to express themselves on the nose, but more generous in the mouth. Perhaps it would need more time to prove?

Comment by Piazzolla
Very fresh nose. Fresh meat (raw) and light veil of smoke. Metallic note. Too wise. Evolves on sweet notes (cotton candy). Lacks a bit density.
Enter in your mouth on the candy (yellow crocodile). Nice oily texture. Indolent. Slight tangy. Vanilla-oak.
Medium final in phase with a mix of the nose and mouth!

Conclusion Lack of character but very nice. Looks like a Laphroaig in (much) less peaty Laphroaig probably not!

Nose: a little peat & smoke on the nose first.
After aeration, fruit (especially peach), almond milk. Made me think of Bowmore Tempest by far.
Palate: Round and in continuity
Finish: long final on peat and almond milk with a hint of bitterness.

Comment by Corbuso
Nose: Oaky, slightly juicy, spicy and grassy, with light notes of honey, malt and vanilla. Clean.
Taste: Oaky, slightly floral and fragrant, malty, with light oaky and grassy notes, as well as some green apples and honey. The finish is short to medium and on the same flavours.
Impression: A good fresh and malty whisky.

Color: White Wine
Nose: Light and a few peaty. Alcohol is fairly discreet. Some notes of iodine are also present.
Taste: The alcohol is well integrated, very discreet. Peat is now very present. These notes of iodine are very pleasant.
Long and peaty final. A touch of fresh mint is also present on the tongue.

Commentaire de Dagde
Colour: Pale gold
Nose: dry apple, a little cream - a little pastry at first - cork and red grapes. This is slightly astringent. At the end of of the nosing one can guess something like animal iodine. The nose tread carefully, smoothly. Moderately enjoyable.
Taste: The alcohol is strong but the flavors seem content. Salty bitterness , white fruits and barley. The frugal side succumbs to saline assault . A small harmful imbalance .
Final: Final rather short on white tea. Again the grass gives way to a more meat, as a key peaty and salty mainly good aftertaste.

Conclusion: A rather fragile whisky. Notable imperfections: Nose little cajoling, imbalance in the mouth and final falling too fast. Surprisingly, it has a small charming overall.

Personal Comment

Color: Gold
The nose is first rather discrete and evolves slowly toward fruity notes mixed with hints of minerals. Honey but also flowers, some fruit, the nose is quite elusive and therefore difficult to describe with precision. One thing is certain: it is pleasant.
The mouth is first very smooth, but soon displayed such mineral notes already present in the nose, and a mixture of earth, fruit and wood give it a nice complexity. Nice mouth, even if we would have preferred to see the fruits outweigh minerality.
The finish prolongs the mouth and is long and hot. Here too, the earthy outweigh the fruity richness guessed at the beginning of mouth.

Comment by Corbuso
Colour: Gold-old gold.
Nose: Starchy, floral, rather grassy, malty, on pollen and some honey. Rather round.
Taste: Oily, creamy, grassy, with a light maltiness, some floral smoky notes, rather big and with a light fragrance. Complex. Diluted, it becomes even more complex, with some light fruity notes of the orchards. The finish is medium, grassy, with a touch of honey, some floral and smoky notes, and a slight bitterness.
Impression: This might not be everyone’s tipple, but I really enjoyed this complex, rather big, grassy and lightly peated whisky that certainly comes from a very old distillery in the so-called Eastern Highlands region. A very good dram.

Comment by Mars
Nose: oil, ripe pear, syrup, nuts. Very melted.
After aeration: Citrus and wax.

Taste: Oily, lemon, sugar, fruits, spices.
After aeration: Waxy.

Finale: Fat peat, motor oil, wet earth, blood orange marmalade, spices. Nice and long.
After aeration: Almost no peat, vanilla, very long, waxy. Much better balance.

Comments: A fairly oily whisky and whose peaty side disappears with aeration. It then takes a waxy side. Pleasant but lacks a little something.

Comment by TTN
Nose: Very fresh, clean. Very marin with pronounced notes of oyster shells. It smells like hot sand ... We can distinguish a few notes of almonds and hazelnuts.
Palate: Full bodied, the attack is lightly salted with vanilla fudge, and then come to my taste, in proportion, with pink grapefruit in the background a little ginger. I love!
Finish: Quite long, both acidic and very salty.
Overall impression: A flavor profile which suits me. Again, I think collecting maritime influences of a coastal distillery Bruichladdich could be or Pulteney.

Nose: pastry, pie, cinnamon, vanilla, apricots. Remember a pastry that I used to eat as a kid but I cannot come to the name. Cakes with pineapple? Apricot pie? Tartlet with strawberry jam?
Mouth of lower quality than the nose. Fruity.
Final: on cinnamon

Comment by mapi
Color: Gold
Nose: salty seaweed and marked by aromas of apricot.
The palate is fresh, minty. The aromas are like the nose marked by the fruits of the orchard, this time peach.
The finish is peppery.

This whisky has a good balance but lacks a little power to make speak a nonetheless appealing pepper.

Comment by Amor57
The first nose is woody and mineral. It calms down quickly, but by acquiring images of moorland. All is well built and developed on the vegetal: grass, fresh herbs, pine, spices with cumin and cloves first, and gingerbread. Really fun. The mouth presents a clear and precise attack. First the mineral (chalk, ash), and the heath (heather, light humus, Scotch broom), and then the sour grapes and fresh curd. The finish of medium length, has a nice bitterness, nuts, fresh almonds and other nuts as well as spices and a little mint.
A very pleasant expression with a nice bitterness in the background.

Commentaire de Dagde
Color: Gold

Nose: very soft and round, with a buttery presence of a vegetation smoke ,some farmy hints. Rather monolithic at first. Autumn fruit basket and a presence behind citrus with hints of chocolate. The milk caramel then takes it - sweets -. There are also menthol and pepper.
With aeration, cocoa is dominating leaving in addition fresh pear lying on a bed of straw.

Palate: The palate starts is the chocolate malt and caramel before coming being jostled by the pure cocoa gives a hint of bitterness.

Final: milk chocolate, hazelnut are combined with the wet grass and a hint of cassis. Balanced with hints peaty lightly salted. Of medium length.

In short: A really charming nose, going to the pastry confectionery. The Christmas aspect extends to the mouth in a nice balance, a beautiful integration of alcohol. Too bad it lacks complexity. The finish deserved a little long. Finally, a good whiskey that has mastered a seductive nose. Its lack of complexity is partly offset by the accuracy of its aromas.

Comment by Sebou007
Colour : Gold

Nose : We start with notes of almond paste and peat. A little smoke, cold ashes. It's very round and nice. Crystallized lemon. Some white wine. Lemon and ashes take over quite rapidly. Some liquorice. A slight hint of "herbes de Provence" and chemical candy. Vanilla. The round side faints quite quickly and gives way to some austerity.

Mouth : We remain on roasted almonds, but with a beautiful ash taste in addition, which comes to coat the whole thing. Superb.
Pretty well integrated alcohol. Notes of white wine, cold ash, smoke. The whole thing is quite lemony.

Finale : Long, on ash and roasted almonds.

Conclusion : A sweet and peated piece of candy. Not very complex, it goes down quite quickly, but very good for a winter evening.

Comment by Savoureur
Appearance: Yellow gold
Nose: Low to medium intensity, well integrated alcohol, dusty, alcoholic freshness, fruity (ripe fruits), malty, black tea, slight vegetables
Mouth: Low intensity, alcohol well integrated, as the nose the mouth has lots of flavours but without beeing aggregate
Finish: Short to medium
With water: Nose and mouth lose in intensity, the mouth loses in complexity but becomes more consistent on fruity flavours
Conclusion: A complex whisky but without beeing able to charm me, especially because of the lack of harmony and intensity

Comment by ALouis
Colour: pale gold
Nose: Quite pastry, almond paste, some spices and notes of cereal.
In the second nose, the sherry on the nuts and spices is more present and notes of brandy, pear or plum.
Palate: The palate is more fruity than the nose on yellow fruits and citrus.
Then a few notes of nuts appear, and the almond paste.
Final: Medium and slightly bitter.

Nose: Cereal + Pastry with notes of iodine / marine background. Indolent. Balanced but confused.
Palate: delicate on a certain bitterness and evolution on the cereal malt. ... Too evanescent. A little pear? Probably too small anyway.
Final short and slightly bitter.
conclusion
It lets himself drink (easily), but not much feeling side.

Comment by Alexandre
The nose is first marked by nice, fruity acidity (apple), with a light wax and a little mango. It's fresh and inviting all at once. Over time, the nose becomes stronger and woody. It has honey, dry sherry, wood, paper pulp and a little peat. The set is suitable, even if it lacks a little complexity and power.

The mouth opens on exotic fruits. Smoothly it then shows flavors of apple, then wax, and milk chocolate. Everything is a little messy and lacks of power, that ventilation does not settle, even if the are emerging hints of wood and plants, which make it a little more austere and as difficult as ever to identify.

The final short, is dominated by the apple, with a little pepper and yellow fruits after aeration.

In conclusion, a whisky that has no flaw but lacks complexity and personality.

Comment by Canis_Lupus
Colour: Straw yellow, white wine.
Nose: nose first hard to describe, vegetable soup, perhaps? Grilled pie dough, cabbage, white bread, margarine, slightly white vinegar.
Taste: oily, but does not express much.
Final: an extension of the mouth, a little more expressive, with notes of nuts, margarine.

Comment: Not much to say but not much to complain about. The addition of water does not change much.

Comment by Jmputz
Color: Gold
The nose, slightly farmy seems marked by notes of yeast. It's not particularly the kind of profile I like. Hints of peat and a distant hint of fruit.
Mouth contrasts with the nose. No more those unpleasant notes of yeast. The mouth is well balanced, with hints of mocha mixed with granola, and relatively low complexity. Nice though.
The finish is long and pleasantly marked by notes of milk chocolate.

Comment by Arno
Nose: Strange. The first nose burned on plastic and cellophane. Fortunately, the peat comes, with a leather salty, hints of heather, citrus and bitter lemon and some spices too. Background on the topic apple-grain. With aeration, notes fade quickly but not completely.
Mouth: very bland, seemingly very diluted. We find the impression of scorched tire, diluted in water. Some cereal, some fruit (banana?). A little spicy. Best in the finish with the late arrival of peat and smoke. But how flat it is !
Final: on peat and wood. But short ...
Conclusion: Lack of relief, harmful flavors ... Could do better.

Comment by Jean-Michel
Color: Pale gold.

Nose: Fourth phenolic of the set, and at first nose, it doesn’t seem to be the most interesting one… A mix of phenols and grain. A peaty malt from the fields, with lots of crushed and soaked cereals, and notes geranium. And also a bit of dust from an old barn.

Mouth: Really light. Huge reduction on the horizon. A silky mouthfeel, but apart from diluted phenols and a hint of honey, it significantly lacks of flavors and punch. A hint of lemon, perhaps?

Finish: Phenols help it to last a bit, with notes of dust and the bitterness of a stale beer.

Comment: A young malt that plays the card of delicate phenols, but doesn’t achieve in avoiding the defaults of youth. Sophisticated or weak? I’ve chosen my side…

Comment by Blackmalt
Colour: intense golden
Strange nose. Somewhat animal, organic. the smell of "coffee liégeois"? Smells of hot caramel are evident. With this, a little background of peat and ash. Then the aeration, there is very little over ... Some indescribable flavor, perhaps?
Palate: medium hot and spicy woody. For the moment there is not much apart from a distant bitterness.
Finale of time. More pungent than the mouth. But still a shocking lack of flavor.

Comment: .. Not much to say in conclusion. I did not like. I felt nothing.
Several possibilities. Or whisky is really bad, or my sample was a concern .. Or my taste. In any case, the second sample for this and my conclusions are the same.

Comment by Johannes_Sauer
Colour: Golden, brite straw, with green glimmers.
Nose: Very gentle, yet expressive and very round: Dried fruits, figs and dates combined with wet hay (a very surprising and delicate note of farmyard or cowbarn) backed by a clearly definded whiff of smoke (air dried bacon).
Taste: Very warm, full and malty and again this very pleasureful smoke stands in the back. Not as complex as the nose (pity, the farmyards missing) but lets try a good shot of water: Here now the soft malty notes dominate: milk chocolate, mints, marzipan, fresh buttered toast and here again this farmyard notes back. With more water added theres again more complexity.
Finish: Good and long, the oakwood sending soft waves of smoke and bitter herbs again and again.
Conc.: A very fine highlander s! tands tall. Beautifully crafted and balanced, goes perfectly with dark chocolate or tobacco.
