This dram owns a love-it-or-hate-it profile with a rather strange aromas and flavours mix that is actually not faulty but unusual. So I am somewhat in-between - I like it because it is interesting but I do not like the profile itself.
The colour is pale gold and the nose offers a creamy toffee profile that reminds me of butterscotch. Later some spices and caramel aromas join in and after some breathing shy herbs dare to show up together with minor (and not unpleasant) cheesy notes. This is a very interesting and rather strange aromas mix but it is not my favourite style, unfortunately. But I can imagine that others will like this.
The taste is bitter-sweet on butterscotch-caramel and herbal flavours with bitter tannins. This is not delicious to my taste buds but after some chewing a tasty chocolatey-liquorice flavour pops up. Water is not recommended as it just flattens the dram.
The initial mouthfeel is completely unimpressive and neither warming nor coating but with a significant drying-astringent feeling that I do not like. The finish is of medium length and adds more chocolatey flavours. Towards the end it gets drying-astringent again (plastic, tannins).
