More new bottlings of that famous malt whisky of which all stocks were nearly exhausted ten years ago ;-), but we won’t complain, many are extremely good in our opinion... Hope this one will be as good as the stunning cask #2469 by the same bottler. Colour: white wine – pale straw. Nose: it seems that it’s one of these ultra-austere PE’s, all on wet stones, chalk, lime and even aspirin, with almost no fruitness whatsoever. It’s not very peaty either, rather porridgy and lemony. Not quite a Lowlander of course but I believe it wouldn’t be too easy to nail Islay’s south shore when tasting this one blind. Interesting notes of green curry and green pepper as well. More peat comes through after a while but it never quite gets ‘a peat monster’. Different. Mouth: starts amazingly lemony – almost pure lime juice – and peppery, with something a tad drying on your tongue. A little cardboard? More sweetness after that (apple compote) but again, no big peat here. More something of Talisker I think, which, of course, isn’t bad news. Finish: medium long, peppery and still a tad drying, chalky, ‘mat’. Comments: very good whisky but probably not in the same league as cask #2469 from last year. Sort of lacks ‘something’ I think.
