The parallels to the sister barrel, the smoke-malt profile, are interesting. However, the smoke is not greasy here, but rather dry and sweet.
For me, this whisky has a pungent note of rose water (cheap) and citrus freshener (artificial and chemical citrus notes).
In the background there is also a natural fruit note of raspberry and red currant, with some cherry.
The start is quite sharp. An intense cherry water aroma, reminiscent of Mon Cherie. Currants, a bit malty-grainy, slightly floral and almost perfumed. Again the impression of cheap rose water.
Medium-length, ashy with Rosenwaaer cherry water melange and light oak
More pleasing in the mouth than the sister barrel, a finer balance. I don't really like the artificial aromas, they also seem a bit depressed.
