    with water: taste and finish scream for water, but I'm also afraid that too much water could add to the relatively young malt .. it becomes sweeter, much sweeter in taste and the pepperiness subsides, but the metallic youth is behind the sweetness feel

    Conclusion: difficult dram that needs water, but then doesn't get along very well with it, all in all OK, but unbalanced - a shame
    • Nose
      Subtle hint of red berries (red berries, blackberries), with light fruit (apple), honey, vanilla and a slightly earthy touch and oat biscuits, some white pepper, the alcohol is not perfectly integrated, looks a bit young and unbalanced
    • Taste
      the first start is full and round, even a little oily / creamy, red berry fruit, vanilla, pineapple, malty, then the alcohol hits with a lot of pepper, for me it is too hot
    • Finish
      Medium length, the finish also struggles with the peppery alcohol, m creamy, malty, blackberries, a little oak, on the back then dry and slightly spicy, a little liquorice
