Matsui The Peated



Nose: It has to be said that this was quite a different peated experience than what is produced in Scotland. No surprise there, but the first that hit me was quite a flowered peat, but also some vanilla oak. Some rubber, and with water quite a bit of marzipan.


Palate: Peated, burnt oak, floral… Continue reading

Pris Vinmonopolet: Finnes ikke. Pris internett: 36,50 £

Alkohol: 45%

Farge: Lys strågul. Mulig amerikansk bourbonfat?

Lukt: Herlig snop! Mye fersken, tørket ananas, (skum)banan, kokos og noe lær. Med litt vann blir den mer krydret

Smak: Fyller munnen godt/oljete, fruktig og nøttete.

Vurdering: Absolutt en herlig whisky som anbefales sterkt! Og at dette er sommer er det ingen tvil om! Terningen er en solid femmer!

Glenfiddich 26 år

Anmeldt: 05.12.15

Single Cask whisky, Amerikansk eik.

Alkoholprosent: 43

Pris Vinmonopolet: Kr 3.564

Farge: Mørk gylden

Lukt: Det første som slår en er epler! Nærmest en calvados. Svært fruktig. Også en del kokos.

Smak: Lett pepper, men søtlig. Med vann blir den mye fruktigere – mye banan. Med litt vann fyller den munnen mer.

Vurdering: Dette var virkelig fantastisk! Dette er et godt sted å plassere tre tusenlapper om du har! Herlig! 5!
