    Fantastic single cask whisky.
    I recommend water!
    • Nose
      90 90
      Without water:
      Smoke - not ashy rather fleshy, strawberries, rubber boots.

      With water:
      Chewing candy, much sweeter, less smoky.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Without water:
      It takes time in your mouth. Dry, spicy, tart, citrus, crumble cake. -> 85P

      With water:
      Similar, only much nicer. Much sweeter. The stark bitter note goes extremely into the background. -> 95P
    • Finish
      85 85
      Becoming dry, bitter, long.
