Laphroaig goes down way too easy. I'm gonna use Livet 12 to slow myself down.

Alright thats a great tease... now tease me some more.... How is it? Can you write up some tasting notes?


bredman's notes

N: I'm trying to not say fruitcake, but this is just that, one of the rich fruity ones. Strong on raisins, currants, and sultana. Also dried apricot, dates, and an unctuous prune juice. Very nutty, walnut oil and pecan. Marzipan and cherry together. Dark chocolate, there's coffee too, i smell it but it's not there when i go looking for it, then suddenly it is. I'm loving this, it's all there, everything you would want from dark sherry, but it's all measured and doesn't totally hide the whisky beneath being malty, and the barley is quite succinct, as and when it chooses. Cardamom on the top notes.

T: Good mouthfeel and instantly spicy, much more than the nose, cassia, allspice, and some light clove. Aged rum and chocolate. Just before the finish kicks in there's prune juice again, and molasses. All held together with an oaky backbone.

F: Medium length plus a bit, and quite wonderful. Some coffee again. A lovely bitter-sweet finish. Almost all the previously encountered flavours are right there to the very end.


Balanced, you get a feeling this whisky has been crafted, and built, as it's so intricately woven. I will have this bottle open for a while, i want to savour this and watch it develop, so there may be updates but i can't imagine if i could take anymore complexity from this whisky. I had some in a glass for several hours, and try as i might, i just can't find any sulphur at all, not a hint of it, i pray it stays that way.

They have all been good. Some better than others. I would give them a try. None have been bad. But also I have not had any outstanding yet. I will continue to try new ones as they come out.
