    Relatively soft, but young. It remains unclear why it had to be bottled that young at 46%. I would have left it in the cask for a few more years.

    Color: white wine
    Nose: seaweed, dried seaweed, iodine, pungent smoke, bent plastic in the back of the glass, burnt wiring, coals.
    Burned rubber comes out with water, which quickly leaves and vanilla and dust appear mixed with algae.
    Taste: watery, burning, coal dust, tree bark.
    Finish: short, tablet bitterness, caustic smoke, coals.
    Conclusions: I do not know what made the guys pour this barrel, maybe just a desire to try young whisky. While tasting, I did not leave the thought that I was sniffing Kilhoman’s newmake. Fragrance is the strongest side. The rest is not enough. And I did not find branded smoked meat here.
