Third one of the second batch of 2021 WIN bottlings I tasted and the third dissapointment. It just might be the pointless finishing here... Not that it's undrinkable, but it's nowhere near the quality I'd expect from an 85 - 90 euro whisky.
Floral and slightly volatile smells, dried fruits with a mild sourness from the port cask. Some dried apricot, lychee, sour berries, lime juice, pickles and model kit glue.
Not sure about this. It's sour, quite sharp, a bit stale and only mildly fruity on sour berries and bitter citrus. More and more pepperiness comes to the front. The alcohol builds up on the tongue to the point where it becomes unpleasant. Eventually it's quite a hot and sharp experience.
Medium length: watery sour wine notes combined with bitter liquorice and ending on a hot wood spiciness.
