So, what did I think? Here are my tasting notes …
Tasting Notes – Langatun Swiss Single Malt 10 Years Old – Second Edition (49.12%)
Nose: Very sherried with polished wood and fruity, creamy, toffee.
Palate: Thick mouthfeel, creamy toffee and sweet red wine – very tasty!
Finish: A balanced chilli finish with caramel and sugar.
Overall: A tasty dram with some classy flavours – very satisfying!
Tasting Notes – Smögen 8 Years Old – Batch 2 (59.8%)
Nose: Whoah! Loads of peaty liquid smoke – sweet & cheerful! Woody, coastal and aromas of full-on smokey barbecue – I think you get the idea!
Palate: Much of the same as the Nose! It’s also surprisingly sweet.
Finish: Punchy, warming and powerful it’s sweet, smokey barbecue sauce on the tongue!
Overall: I just love peat n’ smoke so I’m a big fan from the get go and this dram lives up to all expectations!
