Advent day 9
These reviews are the first ones I attempt and are part of the advent calendar me and my good friend Jim made for each other. These 24 whiskies I’m trying will serve as a “bootcamp” for getting me started on reviewing my whisky. As such I hope the reviews will improve over time. To clarify the process; this is a blind tasting and the post title and category is set after the reveal.
Peated smoke, I can tell this will be a pretty peated whisky. Some tar and oak. But also some sweetness I can’t quite specify.
Not as heavily peated as the nose suggested. I get some moss and grass with the smokiness. And it turns towards salt and seaweed after a few seconds. The mouth-feel is quite light and leaning towards the dry side.
Well-balanced peat with salted caramel. Became even better with a few drops of water. Strongly like this finish!
Rounded with peat and a salty caramel which makes this a great whisky in my book.
Charred Oak cask (wood), Highland, 44% Single malt.
Personal note: This whisky was a dream! Sad it’s not sold in Sweden.
