As soon as I pour it, I find a sweet note of wood, caramel and a lot of vanilla from the glass.
With the first nose, the wood looks drier and my colleague seems fresher. Cold lemon tea, fresh peach and white currants. Removes a bit of leather and a slightly artificial plastic note. I'll leave it ...
With a little time in the glass, moist hay and a metallic note prevail. Rusty iron bar and a little coconut. Behind it is a syrupy sweetness. Marzipan and some nutmeg.
In addition, toasted aromas, like with freshly toasted toast.
Dry, bitter start. The alcohol tinkles nicely on the tongue. This fine, pure alcohol note in the taste reminds me of triple distilled Lowlander. Then the toasted aromas again. Grainy and wet hay again. A dry, nutty taste joins it. Which makes the story a bit bitter. Goes well towards walnut. Sometimes tastes young and metallic. Which fits nicely into the picture here. The taste reveals little fruit to me. More malty. Something like dark wheat beer with a hint of vanilla and caramel.
Medium length. First the nutty, woody bitterness again. Then come the roasted aromas again and towards the end, the subtle syrupy sweetness. A little smoke sticks to the palate.
