      Drying, sugary, medium length and spikes of heat

  6. alectron scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    I seem to prefer air to water on this. Water is a quick remmedy against the spirit, but seemed to crush some of the finer fruit notes
    • Nose
      somewhat distant/faint nose.
      peat & wood o, pear peel o, candied/dried pineapple o, cinamon bark -, white pepper -, dead leaves -. edit. w water - fresh mint leaves. = ~74
    • Taste
      spirit attack on tongue +. needs to breathe. faint fresh currant fruits -, for some reason I'm thinking of flour, some malt o,
      edit. w water - fresh mint leaves, lemon
    • Finish
      Fresh out of the bottle it's a bit meh, but gets better with air, or water. Long but faint and slowly dying trails of currant & blackberry. neat. w water - 78, w air if the fruits come through = 84
