Islay Single Malt, Jack's Pirate Whisky, Das gestohlene Schiff Part VI, 329 Bottles, Cask No. 0637, 57.4% abv.

Part of Jack Wiebers Whisky World, which is a German whisky importer based in Berlin that started around 1996. Interestingly, they bottle in Glasgow supposedly. Pretty well known for releasing some pretty rare stuff as well as their labels, such as the Old Train Line. Rumors abound that whenever Jack says it's Islay Single Malt, it means it's young Lagavulin. Let's see.

Nose: smoke, phenol, wood burning at the campfire, nothing intense. With water all these aromas are lessened. Definitely Islay mafia.

Palate: major campfire wood, smoke takes a backseat, honey notes dominate later. With water, the wood pops out, more dry, more nutty strangely enough. Possibly Caol Ila, Lagavulin, or Lapbroaig. I think there is some sort of wine-type cask maturation (not finishing) given the honey profile.

Finish: short to medium, honey.

After finishing my pour, the bartender said this bottle was Lagavulin (hehehehe, seems like the Japanese import label on the back also says it's a 10 year Laga), but I can also see it as a PE or young Caol Ila type. I wonder why a 10 year Laga would be 57% abv though. My tongue was covered in honey after this. Very sweet. The wood was at the fore, but not strong and allowed a sort of honey fried chicken taste/feel. I am surprised to say, the nose is the weakest aspect to this dram. Very good, but then again I could have been inebriated at this point.

Grade: A-

Couldn't find quantifiable, reliable reviews.
