Tasted blind for whisky-distilleries.info WDTS:http://www.whisky-distilleries.info/WhiskyWDTS/index_EN.shtml
Starts on orchard fruits. Fresh apple juice. With time, gets very grassy and grainy. We’re getting much closer to the raw material now. Crushed cereal. Porridge. Well, more on corn flakes than on porridge actually. Anyway, not my cup of tea, I’m afraid... Big whiffs of alcohol. Needs some water to be tamed. With water, artificial flavours appear. Pineapple sweets. Lemon drops.
Starts on sweet flavours (back to the lemon drops). Getting really hot now. Burns my throat. Unfolds on liquorice, with a hint of violet, and perhaps a very discreet peat in the background.
Long and drying, with a rooty bitterness.
