    It’s fair to say I’ve never experienced a whisky like this before. I need to bear in mind that this is a cask strength version bottled for Belgian indie bottler The Whisky Mercenary (the regular 46% ABV expressions should be easier – and considerably cheaper - to get hold off), as this comes at me all guns blazing. It’s unusual, spirity and quite complex. It’s got all the familiar elements of a youthful bourbon cask matured single malt, before it goes off the wall with a whole array of new and (to me) unknown flavours and sensations.
    What I do know, is that I liked this one, as, unusual as it may be, it all comes together nicely and it just works. Above all it’s fun, refreshing and a pleasant surprise encountering new and interesting flavours in whisky.

      Really interesting! Closed at first, then some brandy-like sweetness. It keeps on evolving as the sweetness becomes intertwined with wet paper and glue. This may sound pretty awful, but it really works. The seaweed is noticeable as well with a maritime element reminding me of the smell of driftwood in a harbour. When it settles again, I’m back on more familiar ground with hints of pencil shavings and gummy bear sweets. Like I said: weird, but it works.

      A generic sweetness, down to the high ABV. This needs time and a bit of water. Dry, medium full mouthfeel. Vegetal, salty, briny, more sweetness. Umami notes with hints of decaying vegetation combined with a whole array of exotic spices. Again, it tastes a lot better than it sounds.

      Medium long, unusual and weird spices (in a good way), with that dryness turning softly sweet again.

    Awful nose. The seaweed is terribly chemical. Tasted in a tasting of whisky mercenary by Jurgen Vromans
