Very very dark. Looks like coca-cola inside the bottle.
Earthy, damp cellar, rotten wood, musk, slight perfumey but in a okay way, no off notes.
A bit rough but at the same time gentle, there’s a lot going on, pulling in different directions.
Chocolate, espresso, sweetness like from a px cask, bitterness that tastes like from an oloroso.
This is wierd and wonderful at the same time!
Taste: quite heavy, tannins, bitterness, oriental spices, ginseng, ginger, liqorice.
Nice mouthfeel, first I felt it quite thick but second and third time I tried it it was quite thin and bitter. No sweetish whisky this..
Finnish: very drying, a bit bitter, like your sitting there after eating a spoon of dirt. You can almost taste it.
The oriental spices lingers.
Nope, still no saliva, still damp dirt covering the mouth. Coffey, a hint of chocolate. Looong finish. And behold, after a good 10 minutes there’s some sweetness after the mouth recovers from the dirt punch.
A very very interesting whisky. This is not your average sherry whisky. Not much fruitness at all. No typical raisins, christmas cake or whatever.
This dram reminds me of when I helped my dad build a new porch. We had to tear apart the old rotten one which was built on top of old railway sleepers which had rotten against the surface beneath which was damp dirt. This is just like that, rotten, dusty, damp.
This whisky wont be for everyone but it sure is interesting! I like it a lot since it’s so special.
If there would have been a little little smoke in there it would score even higher.
