Is it unusual, is it a weirdo? All the more excited.
Yup, neat it's a weirdo, but it seems to straighten out and become more acceptable with a small dash of water.
Not my "go to" bottle, but it's challanging, which make it an interesting acquaintance.
Never before encountered a whisky which changes so much with so little water.
Very vegetal. Quite a mix of vegetal.
Fresh lawn grass, dry leaves, musky mushroom and pine/spruce branches.
It's not a particularly inviting nose, but rather unusual, which make it all the more interesting.
Looking at the tasting note on the label makes me wonder how they managed to find coffee on the nose.
With just a bit of water it becomes very much more citric.
Arrival is nowhere close to the nose.
I don't mind, I'm not too fond of the raw herbivore diet.
Quite oily texture, and mainly spices.
Then there's something that would have made me wary if it was not whisky. Is it wood extract or maybe linseed oil? Slightly solvent.
A few drops of water seems to push this into the back and it becomes quite floral.
Again, not sure how they found raisins and chocolate here.
Neat it is a little bit dry, spicy and lingering on these solvent notes I have not encountered before.
Not unpleasant, but neither something I would be chasing.
Water makes it sweeter, more digestable, more "normal" and likeable.
