These extremes don't seem valid in the least.
What surprises us the most is Tijmen being familiar with the taste of garbage bags.
We're tasting it with a group of people and we all seem to like it.
The nose is very subtle and it needs a lot of time to open up. It's not peaty, that's for sure, it has dried grass, citrus and a very subtle hint of smoke.
The taste itself is lovely, the age seem to have balanced it really well. At first it's rather sweet with hints of apples, berries.
Because of it's complex and subtle flavors the finish is not prominent.
This whisky needs a lot of time as stated before. Our expectation is that it will only improve over time after being open for a couple of weeks.
This is not a starter's whisky
