Definitely a challenging one, youthfull spirit at full intensity. Lots of space to experiment with water.
Tasted at Black Door, Helsinki.
Sulfur, lemongrass. Grapefruit oil, fresh ginger, coriander seed. Lemon sorbet, nutmeg, light sherry Dark wood. Very clean well defined notes on the nose.
Burning alcohol. Phosphorus, spent matches. Chili, cardamom. Desperate for water.
With water: the phosphor remains up front and maltiness starts to appear.
Short, the alcohol burns out everything except for the oily woody mouthfeel.
Water brings out the woody side of this malt. Lively spices, and paraffin like texture.
