Seaweed & Aeons CS #004 Bottling Note

Behold, batch 4 of Seaweed & Aeons & Digging & Fire & Cask Strength, weighing in at a hefty 58.3% ABV. This expression is made with a 10 year old single malt from Islay (no hints as to which distillery, mind), with 25% of it having enjoyed a stint in sherry casks, lending some welcome sweetness to the earthy, smoky, robust whisky. The bumped-up ABV of the cask strength edition adds some weight behind it all, making for a full-bodied, satisfying, intense expression. Plus, an extra ampersand, which may be the most exciting bit of punctuation out there, only contested by the at sign.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Roasted fruit and driftwood notes jump out of the glass, with hints of apricot jam on oatcakes and gingerbread in support.

Palate: The coastal core remains solid on the palate with seaweed and flaky salt, mellowed slightly by waves of sultanas, dates, and a touch of mocha.

Finish: A meaty hint lingers on the finish, with cinnamon and chocolate peanuts.

Overall: There's loads to love here, from the powerful coastal influence to the flashes of sherried brightness.

A superb experience: nearly knocked Corryvreckan off its perch

I've just tasted this at cask strength alongside a Corryvreckan. The first thing I noticed is it is considerable darker in colour than the Corry. Both have a wonderful texture that helps the flavours linger and the layers emerge on the tongue.

Just when I was thinking the Seaweed doesn't quite have the oomph of the Corry it lit a fruity fire......then threw some sugar, salt, and cinnamon in. A touch of water helped soften and separate the flavours but without impacting the finish, which is ridiculously long, kind of like the credits on a modern movie. I'm still getting echoes 20 minutes later, and that after having a cup of camomile tea!

So, with all that said, does it knock Corry off its perch? Not quite: I find the Corry seems more able to release its flavours in perfectly timed waves, where the Seaweed for me delivers them pretty much straight after each other.
On balance I preferred it unwatered. It is truly a fabulous dram and one I'll bring out for special occasions and people.

Ardbeg?

Pretty sure this is an Ardbeg. Something between the 10yo and Ugi. Well worth the money.

Yes please

This is a brilliant malt. It’s rich, oh so rich, and the peat flavour is delicious. Obviously best with a dash of water but I would highly recommend to anyone who likes smokey whisky

Excellent

This one really packs an Islay punch - no wonder it's an award winning bottle. It's maybe a *smidgen* less complex than the Ardbegs of a similar level but that's almost negligble; it's definitely an equal to the Uigdeadail.

For those after a bolder taste experience

One of the finest single malts I have tasted of the more peaty variety, loved it. Reminded me of night time seafishing trips

Fabulous.

This is not for those that want to try a whisky. However if you are a whisky lover then it is a must have. I could talk about the nose and the finish and all that guff, but that wouldn't do it justice. This is a fabulous whisky..but not for the faint hearted.

Fine

Just tried. Excellent. Bought a bottle of ardbeg 10 and no comparison....smooth, fruity, less smoky than beg and more pleasant in general

Islay at its best

This is a BIG whisky- Islay through and through. At 56%, it can take a fair bit of water so you can adjust to suit your taste. It has a long finish, too, so much so it's still there the next morning!

Excellent

What a fabulous powerful yet well balanced dram. A very appropriately named single malt. Worthy of sitting on the side of Islay seafront and sipping this nectar in to the small hours. Please enjoy 😊

A welcome stranger.

Cask strength, so it will take a spot of water. Lovely dram for the dark winter nights. One to savour. Ridiculously well balanced, hints of fruit cake from the sherry, a whiff of smoke, pinch of salt with dark chocolate. It's rich without being overwhelming. A welcome stranger.
