Jim McEwan's persönlichen Eindrücke ungefiltert:
Body: Muscular, brawny, sculpted and absolutely sensational. A rare and unique spirit from a single cask. It's very possible that you will ever taste a spirit like this again. I am so proud of this beauty and the beast love affair. Just close your eyes, fasten your seatbelt and enjoy an olfactory/taste experience like no other.
Nose: At 58.8% it needs a little reduction to release the most audacious adventurous, beautiful aromatic aromas of peat fires and toasted Islay barley together with soft aromas of ripe plump gorgeous grapes from one of the greatest wines in the world. It's a potent seductive unbelievable experience. The focus is clearly the coming together of two exceptional creations. I could write notes for hours on this spirit!
Taste: It's super smooth. You would never believe it's 58.8%. The voluptuous texture serves as the foundation for Islay to showcase its heritage of Celtic passion and honesty and the spirit delivers that message. The smokey marine moorland flavours and the wine flavours all provide a halo of succulent red fruits. The strength of the oak, the quality of sweet crisp malted barley, its maturation on the very edge of the Atlantic Ocean and the skills of the humble Island distillers. Utterly sensational!
