I smell Nine Leaves (joke)
A Younger one thats obvious. Funky yes. I Like the smell in the nose.
I’ll go with sugar cane juice here when i think about the First drops on the palate.
But the nose still…i am Back in Jamaica again
Tonight i am out in the Cinema so have fun everyone with our daily riddle. Cheers
Ich rieche DDR-Krankenhaus , medizinische Noten,alte Mullbinden mit Desinfektion und kräutrige Noten, hintenraus auch fruchtige Noten nach grünem Apfel. Wildes Zeug, jede Nase irgendwie anders. Am Gaumen wieder diese “Kräutermedizin” und muffige Ansätze.
Schmeckt fast wie dieser Palm Rum im Maulbeerfass. Kann mich da nicht festlegen, Fiji, Savanna oder doch was experimentelles.
Ich glaube, das wird heute eine richtig witzige Auflösung. Rein vom Namen her hätte ich echt nicht auf diese unterschiedlichen Noten getippt
This is not something I’m familiar with whatsoever. I’m having a hard time trying to analyze it, but I had risotto with Brussels sprouts and a glass of red wine and I bit my tongue So it’s like everything has some iron influence at the moment
But so far it smells peated and smoky to me… does that make any sense?
N: fruchtige ester, geröstet, honig, mango, papaya
M: fruchtige ester, mango, smoky, schokolade, trocken, ausgewogen
F: Zedern Holz, Vanille, lecker, trocken
Ich tippe auf Jamaica, kann aber auch Fiji sein… ca. 55%, ca. 10 Jahre
Very light yellow, almost clear on the edges.
Nose: the first sniff is hitting me with brine, olives and a touch of saltiness, in a pleasant combination. It slowly evolves into a slightly funky profile, although it doesn’t seems a Jamaican funk…more herbaceous
Palate: I still sense some of the brine and olive, but really in the background, along with those herbal funkiness.
Doesn’t feel like a particularly high proof, maybe 52-ish, o maybe just well integrated
Finish: medium finish, again with that herbal note and possibly some citrus zeist in there. I also sense a smoky flavor, kinda of a mezcal…
On the nose, could be a Savanna (even if the usual bubble gum flavor is not so strong in this), or also a Worthy (Jamaica)…
At this point you should always expect the unexpected
Should we expect a Skeldon on Christmas Eve?
Barbados, really?! Wow, would have never guessed that. Weirdest Bajan for me so far. Feel a bit relieved noticing there are other people that made a whisky connection in their tasting notes
Remeber, there is still the Pott Rum somewhere around… For sure, only the premium overproof one…
