Jean-Marie Putz

A nice complex nose where old memories of sherry meet malty hints and a touch of yeast and leather. The sea is not far away. Salt and sea spray titillate the nostrils.
In the palate, a very nice impression too with slightly bitter notes near fruit impressions (plum marmalade), roast chestnut, some milk chocolate.
Quite a long finish without exaggeration however.

Jean-Marie Putz

A beautiful and complex nose, with nice hints of dry fruits and plume, some farm and animal smells, and a slight marine impression.
In the mouth, a kind of lightness, and a slightly bitter predominant taste, a touch of smoke, some discrete acid notes on the background, some chocolate and malty hints. Only fly in the ointment, the percentage of alcohol, which could have been higher.
NIce lingering finish, exactly in the spirit of the palate.

All the complexity of a Speyside malt, with a slightly maritime character, typical for coastal whiskies explode from the very first nosing. A whisky with an unusual quality. The taste just confirms the first impression. A lingering finish, relatively dry follows this fragrance explosion, with some spicy and slightly acid hints. A wonderful bottle.

Jean-Marie Putz

The smell of this whisky is extraordinary complex, from malt to prunes through sea hints.
In the palate, a nice complexity too, with citrus fruit touches on a fruity and salty background and touches of light smoke.
The finish, which seemed very long to me at the first time is rather special. The taste intensity dims rapidly, but the remaining taste stays long on the tongue, with its spicy hints on citrus fruit background. Even some honey and vanilla at the end.
