Not a drop to start the evening.
It starts great. Currant, raspberry lovage, nuts. Very intensive. Here you look forward to discovering everything else. Alcohol well integrated too.
Strong and fruity at the beginning. A sweetness flashes. Then it changes direction, strong bitterness in the first and second sip almost completely displaces fruit and sweetness. Not better with water either. I do not really like it that much. From the third sip, your tongue gets used to it.
In this respect, a very differentiated picture. Glad I had a 3cl dram. First/second sip tended towards 70p because it was really too bitter. 3rd sip then more like 80, 4th even towards 87 again.
Here the bitterness slowly subsides again. More pleasant from sip to sip.
The later part of the finish reminds me of strong Glenfarclas. And I really like that. Were it not for the initial bile...
