    needs time..

    a very sharp, very clean creation
    • Nose
      92 92
      chalk.. grapefruit & lemons.. very nice, almost fruity, almost perfumy.. lolipops & red wine.. a very versatile, albeit shy profile, which makes all the more interesting the hunt for notes.. the nose buried deep into the glass finds iodine, as well.. and a pinch of salt.
      quite waxy.
    • Taste
      91 91
      sweet, winey.. not too much licorice.. lemons & ginger.. some bitter herbal notes which, combined with the heat of the spirit, make me think of a nicely made absinthe
    • Finish
      88 88
      just echoes of the taste.. it’s almost like the whisky dissolved in the mouth without a trace.. to me, almost a finish-less dram.
