Weitere Informationen und Tasting Notes

BBR – Ardmore

Von der Produktseite: „Prior to refurbishment in the early 2000s, Ardmore produced a rather old-fashioned style of whisky, often showing a savoury side and regularly peated. The traditionally direct-fired stills gave life to a spirit of myriad tiny, characterful imperfections that forces very careful cask-selection upon us. This particular Bourbon-cask example stood out within our stocks as combining the bold, earthy peatiness inherent in the spirit, with an exuberant lick of sweet, shiny oak giving balance and coherence. We chose to bottle it at cask strength to preserve this muscular balance, although a dash of water does allow a more citrussy note to enliven the nose.

Clonakilty

  • Aroma: Vanille, dunkle rote Beeren, Rhabarber, Malz

Tamdhu 15yo

Gereift in Sherryfässern.

Offizielle Tasting Notes

  • Nose: An aromatic array of apple pastry, spiced currants and orange zest, with exotic notes of pineapple and fennel.
  • Palate: A burst of juicy apricot and vibrant raspberry, with lemon tart and creamy almonds on the palate.
  • Finish: A rewardingly long journey through warming malt biscuit, cream sherry and vanilla.

Douglas Laing

  • Linkwood
    Nose: Still fresh, citric sweet & fragrant for it’s age – carrying a spiced caramelised peaches style.
    Palate: Opens sweet & now spicy – richly vanilla’d – some oak and chewy Malt quality.
    Finish: Long and velvety – still nicely spiced – runs drier to charred oak + orange marmalade.
  • Caol Ila
    Nose: Shows ozone & hot sand initially – running to soft peated barley tones.
    Palate: Sweet Malt marries subtly with a sugary, lightly tarred, ashy quality.
    Finish: Now smoky + a Fisherman’s friend spiced style & a late syrupy dash.
  • Ardbeg
    Nose: Opens sweet and vanilla’d – developing to liquorice – soft chewy tar + peated Malt.
    Palate: Still sweet – builds to rock pools & a warming smoked quality + chimney soot.
    Finish: Long & lingering – still sooty + beach bonfire ashes & sweet cigar smoke

Glasgow

Von der Pre-Order-Webseite: „Matured in first fill ex-bourbon casks, finished in virgin white oak and non-chill filtered; 1770 is incredibly smooth, exceptionally fruity and complex; a single malt of sublime quality that continues the rise of a new whisky era in Glasgow.“ Kann ab sofort vorbestellt werden, wird aber erst im April ausgeliefert. Demnächst wird es auch eine „PEATED“ und eine „TRIPLE DISTILLED“ Ausgabe geben.

Offizielle Tasting Notes

  • Nose: Dried dark fruits with tropical undertones on the nose, followed by hints of biscuit, oak and freshly cut grass.
  • Palate: Sweet butterscotch with a crème brulee char on the pallet. Hints of freshly sliced pear, dried figs, dates and raisin with sweet almond, honey and creamy shortbread notes.
  • Finish: A long finish of thickly spread orange marmalade, nutmeg notes underpinned by complex woodiness and a slight spice.
