I really like these kinds of whisky. It's odd, different, not a standard kind of dram. Very varied, with a nice mixture of earthy, slightly peaty notes and fruitiness, with a spicy touch on it.
A lot to discover for sure, very pleasant experience.
Immediately an odd combination of aroma's. Some hints of peat, pines, oranges, earthiness, all together. Spicy. Quite some alcohol. Later on even some farmy notes, hay, cow stable. And then hints of caramel. Although it's pretty modest, there's plenty of variety, but you have to take some time and effort to discover.
Pretty powerful, spicy. Orange and a touch of bitter orange zest, pepper, licorice, earthy, thick and creamy structure, with far away a peaty touch. Then more sweetness in the palate, even some fudge/caramel.
Still powerful, warming, spicy. Orange, earthy, some hints of ash and woodsmoke, although more to the background. Licorice again, pretty long finish. Some tobacco. Later something remains like a kind of fruitiness hard to describe.
