Review door Edinburgh Whisky Ltd

« Deze review is alleen beschikbaar in het Engels »
Kleur

Deep old gold

Geur

Soft, smoky initial maritime hit – from Lapsang tea to light iodine – washed over with a mineral, salty brine. The sweet fruitiness of candied orange and dried apricot evelops into darker fruit like fresh figs and prunes in Armagnac, which leads to great savoury elements like new leather, pipe tobacco and toasted macadamias. Lightly floral and aromatic with notes of fresh roses, wild heather and jasmine tea.

Smaak

Lovely mouthfeel – both dense and smooth. Panettone to salted caramel and pure heather honey. Baked apples and golden raisins. Cigar box woodiness. Climbing intensity with the light peat smoke throughout. Dark and brooding. Long, lush finish.

Conclusie

Delicate peat smoke meets salty maritime and floral heather honey.

Wonderfully complex, heady and enchanting. A singular cask.
