Zitat von whiskyfun :
Tactical 31 yo 1970/2002 (50%, Douglas Laing Old Malt Cask, sherry finish, 222 bottles)
Colour: deep gold. Nose: very different! Less fresh and less lemony, the attack being more on hot butter,
vanilla crème and orange water. Much more wood influence, in a very nice way. Milk chocolate, caramel
crème, white pepper… Very little smoke and no peppery blast, but still lots of vivacity. Apple pie,
cinnamon. Lots of cooked apricot, peach pie… Very, very nice but not really typical. Oh, finally, some
notes of eucalyptus and varnish. Well… Mouth: again, not very T******rish right at the start. Bitter caramel.
Some curious notes of seawater, though, but also lots of citrus again. Rather rough, tannic, hot. More and
more citrusy, in fact. Concentrated lemon juice? Quite some oak, and also some peat, finally. The finish
is extremely long, almost burning, with some rather strong salty notes that play with your tongue. Funny?
Not really but this one is really extreme, hence worth the try! 90 points.
