    you can try it - but you don't have to ...
    [81 - 78 = 'ok' whiskey -> but do I need a whole bottle?]
    • Nose
      light phenolic peat smoke with a maritime (salty-looking) undertone.
      Over time, the peat smoke gets a little stronger and the salty spray with seaweed is supposedly stronger.
      Behind on the fruity side: sweet lemons, apples and pears.
      Everything has a flavor of nutmeg and black pepper.
      Eich wort is noticeable in the background, but not really fully developed.
    • Taste
      full spice immediately on the tongue, but also full spiciness (not peppery, but alcohol-spicy), which goes away quickly.
      It gets dry on the tongue quite quickly and the peat smoke arrives with a delay, but the taste also initially remains on a low level.
      Over time, I began to see ignition platelets, slight DMTS associations with gunpowder; but that also somehow goes in the direction of maritime salty air.
      Second sip: the spiciness comes back a little delayed after the wort.
      The fruits are now a little easier to grasp, but almost drowned in the heat ... what a shame.
    • Finish
      What remains is a slightly bitter note, sometimes something like gunpowder, sometimes something salty-maritime.
