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.
