Аромат: насыщенный, сладкий, слегка спиртуозный, карамель, вареная сгущёнка, сажа, обугленное дерево, прелая осенняя листва, подкопченные сухофрукты, металлические нотки. Со временем древесная составляющая ощутима ещё шире: лак, фанера, клей для дерева, хьюмидор с сигарами, появляются нотки кислых ягод, машинное масло.

Вкус: яркий, атака специй, перец, имбирь, пряности для глинтвейна, солёная карамель, ириски, много копчёностей, сушеные яблоки и груши, вяжущее дерево, калёный грецкий орех, зола.

Финиш: длиннее среднего, копчености, сладость, мёд, карамель с орехами, табачный лист, выделанная кожа, насыщенный компот из сухофруктов, много вяжущих ореховых и древесных танинов. Завершает всё лаково-зольно-минеральные нотки, машинное масло.

Оценка: 88

Итог: очень удачный виски, такая себе базовая 10-летка на стероидах, только с большей фенольностью. Как обычно в официальных выпусках – обилие приятного дуба, грецкий орех, лак.

芝兰玉树,生于庭中,小时如此,让人可以想见18年的模样。美中不足的是受制于产能,第一版longrow 10应该只用了很少的桶来勾调,未免单薄了些。
  • Nose
    海洋性矿物质的味道,虾爬子壳,赶海的人晾晒在黑色礁石上的海带,碱金属单质与香甜的麦芽,油脂肥厚而带有工业气息,初春的红色浆果。
  • Taste
    微咸的粗粮点心,炊烟,泥炭,饱含大麦的香气,润滑油,蜂蜜,甜度直追波本桶,谷氨酸钠,些微果酸。

    较饱满,油脂较丰厚,甜,少少酸,无涩度,无苦底。
  • Finish
    较长久,胡椒,泥煤,大麦。

I can do this all day.
  • Nose
    参杂着硫磺与肴肉风格的重泥煤,诱人而多汁的红色水果,甜度较高,蜂蜜,软糖,略带焦糊味道的黄油、果仁与谷物。
  • Taste
    品味Palate:甫一入口是粗暴的海盐与浓烈的胡椒碎,泥煤有如老式火车进站。甜姜,红苹果,黄油软糖,帕尔马干酪,重重的咸味与焦油的过度烧灼感纠结在一起,底色是饱满而丰厚的大麦。

    饱满强壮,油脂丰厚,甜,无酸,无涩度,无苦底。
  • Finish
    极其长久,胡椒,泥煤,咸乳酪,坚果油。

A nice daily dram, not the best in this series imho.
  • Nose
    84 84
    Sweet apricots, some hay, little sour note. Clear wine cask influence. Little saw dust too
  • Taste
    83 83
    Sweet and mellow. Clear wine influence, but cannot really describe the taste. It is quite well made, but masks the distillery style a bit.
  • Finish
    85 85
    Medium length. Very clear sauterness influence. Followed by some honey, sawdust and a tad bitter note.
    Fades away slowly with some sweet and sour notes.

My second bottle of Ardbeg Uigeadail (bot. 2019) and I must say the quality has declined
  • Nose
    86 86
    Not as peaty as expected, and the alcohol burn is more significant. Still some sweet dark fruits but not as much as before.
  • Taste
    85 85
    Silky and mouth coating texture. Very oily but instantly the tannins hit. Bitter and mouth drying, overly so. Some sweetness and brine characteristics but then bitterness takes over.
  • Finish
    86 86
    More ashy soot here. Medium in length and bitterness of dark roasted coffee continues.

  • Nose
    86 86
    Light fruity sweetness first, followed by some citrus sour and very mild peat smoke lingering
  • Taste
    85 85
    Sweet, sour and bitter. Citrus peel, vanilla sweetness. some kitchen spices as well. The sherry influence is quite mild in my opinion, the spirit character shines through
  • Finish
    86 86
    Rather long and bittersweet, think roasted coffee beans

Goûté à trois reprise, ce Port Ellen est citronné, minéral, une tourbe fine mais bien présente.
Une légère touche maritime est aussi perceptible.

Le whisky s’ouvre après avoir ajouté une goutte d’eau.

Un beau Port Ellen !

tried this one during a five decades tasting in the distillery , and had to buy a bottle immediatly, great stuff, nice old school sherry for some maybe too much , but if I reference my friend hs305 this one at least doesnt come from the devil himself ;)
great sherry whisky , best out of the tasting we had with murray , in which was featured 1966(cask 4198),1977(cask 7292),1980(cask 1414) ,1990 (93 points)

Viel dunkle Schokolade, vergorene dunkle Frucht, unterschwellig etwas muffig, aber nicht unangenehm, Alkohol in der Nase nicht spürbar, im Mund kommt eine angenehme Schärfe mit einer ganz leichten Kräuternote, jetzt kommt auch dezent Minze dazu.

Шикарный Невис, один из лучших что пока пробовал. Нежный аромат отлично сочетается со взрывным вкусом, и послевкусие тоже не выбивается. Особой многослойности нет, но потрясающе вкусный виски. Алкоголь практически не ощущается ни в аромате, ни во вкусе, интегрирован великолепно
  • Nose
    нежный фруктовый, окутывает спелыми апельсинами и грушами, немного ментола и специй
  • Taste
    грейпфрутовый сок, взрывной, ваниль со специями, спелое сочное манго
  • Finish
    долгое, цитрусовое, с примесью специй и немного древесной кислинки

Another long day sequestered in my whisky cave working on IT projects and drinking down bottles and samples. I dug up the last dram of liquid sunshine from Duncan Taylor via Glen Moray

In the end, this is still sunshine in a glass, summertime whisky filled with stone fruits and warm sweetness and malty goodness. Seek yourself out a dram if you can!
  • Nose

    The nose is sunshine in a glass. Heather and hay, bright fruity... Stone fruits and fresh malt. Summer whisky; cut hay, grassy, peonies, hints of malty bitterness and some sweet apricots or dried pears. Bright and fresh!
  • Taste
    88 88
    The palate is subtle sweet. More of the sweet stone fruits come along, apricots and dried peach slices mingle with sweet malt and bright grassiness, almost hints of lowlands in it. Malty porridge and Kraft caramels.
  • Finish
    90 90
    Okay sweet and a twist of Telicherry pepper. Tea leaves and melted waxy notes, more dried stone fruits and deep notes of malty vanilla oak pudding. So tasty!

Meet our new brew. Introducing Jameson Cold Brew.

Coffee and Irish whiskey are no strangers, but at Jameson we couldn’t help but wonder if there was more to their story. So, we found a fresh new angle into a classic partnership with Jameson Cold Brew.

Jameson Cold Brew combines the smooth taste of triple distilled Jameson and the richness of natural cold brew coffee flavor into one bottle. This is a perfectly balanced combination of our smooth Irish Whiskey with hints of toasted oak, dark chocolate and a rich coffee aroma.

Made with Arabica beans from Brazil and Colombia. With no added sugar.

Best served chilled, over ice or in a cocktail and among friends.

Nose:
Intense rich coffee bean aromatics combined with vanilla nuttiness of Jameson.

Taste:
Distinctive, bold and natural with refreshing cold brew coffee impact followed by charred wood from the pot still whiskey contribution on palate.

Finish:
Full bodied, smooth and warming on mouthfeel.

Dunkler, sehr öliger Malt. Bleibt flächig am Glasrand "kleben", wenige zähe Finger.

Gefällt mir insgesamt sehr gut. Unbedingt Zeit beim Nosing lassen. Sehr schönes Produkt. Gut ausgewählt, Marco.
  • Nose
    90 90
    Aufgeladener Malt, Trockenpflaume strömt direkt aus dem Glas, schwere Aromen, schokolierte Rosinen, Leder, Gewürze, Zimt, Nüsse, dahinter wieder Früchte, Wachs, ich assoziiere einen Hauch von Möbelpolitur, aber nicht im unangenehmen Sinne, später auch Röstkaffee
    Braucht Zeit und entwickelt sich immer weiter - Alkohol perfekt eingebunden
  • Taste
    89 89
    Tritt überraschend spitz und etwas scharf im Mund an, in der Nase liegt eine frisch-rote Fruchtnote (Johannisbeere?). Aromatisch-Intensiv legt er dann los: Kaffee-Nuss-Bitterschokolade! Ein wenig Rosine. Und das mit aller Gewalt, Schärfe ist sofort weg und wird vom Aroma verdrängt. Es dauert etwas, bis die Eiche folgt. Starke Würze, zunächst wenig Frucht, die noch später durchkommt. Süße und zartbittere Würze halten sich in schöner Balance.
  • Finish
    88 88
    Klingt aus auf Trockenfrüchten und Nüssen. Studentenfutter! Durchaus lecker. Fällt im Vergleich zum Antritt in der Intensität etwas ab. Durchaus lang und sehr angenehm, was die Bitterkeit angeht

Als je sherry matured whiskys houdt is dit echt een pareltje. Ongelofelijke balans, mooi op vatsterkte, complexiteit tussen rood gedroogd fruit, noten en cake/brood. Ongekend goed.
  • Nose
    90 90
    Mooie complexe nose. De nose verandert van pure chocolade, kaneel, vanille, rietsuiker naar cake, dadels, citrusgras, en vervolgens gedroogd fruit en noten. Heerlijk!
  • Taste
    91 91
    Ongekende sherry bom! Wát een heerlijkheid. Zoet, smaakvol, complex. Chocolade, dadels, cake, vers suikerbrood, kerststol en vervolgens rozijnen, gedroogd fruit, stroperige bosbessenjam, frambozen. Alcohol is perfect geïntegreerd.
  • Finish
    91 91
    Ongelofelijk lekkere finish. Blijft lang hangen en je proeft wat kruidigs, iets van pistache, kaneel, vanille en honing, maar ook het fruitige zoals framboos en rode druiven.

Braucht etwas Luft oder eine Flasche, die mindestens zu einem Drittel geleert ist. Dann eine schöne Sherryrauchbombe zu einem guten Preis.
  • Nose
    86 86
    Speckiger Rauch, geräucherter Schinken, maritime Seeluft, Seetang, dahinter Sherrynoten. Mit der Zeit auch Süsse von getrockneten Datteln.
  • Taste
    85 85
    Kräftiger Antritt, etwas Schärfe, weisser Pfeffer, Chilli, Torfrauch. Dann rote Beerenfrüchte, dunkle Schokolade.
  • Finish
    86 86
    Relativ lange, zu Beginn noch Sherry, dann verbleibt der Rauch und Asche.
