  1. alectron scored this whisky 82 points Specialist

    • Nose
      smoked ham/prosciutto, dusty, earthy, ozone, [red] leather, wax/parafin. (85)
      Later: turns a bit mushroomy & rubbery after a while and seems some sulphur notes work their way through as well ( earthyness turns more swamp-y, a hint of gunpowder).  (83)
    • Taste
      strong for the 49%, somewhat mineral at the beginning, hint of light waxern sulphur notes (match lit candle this time) but not unpleasant, then smokey & sticky sweetness, sweetness steps forward shows more fruity sides but somewhat undefined (84)
      A lot later: more undecided & unbalanced random flavours coming through. Alcohol seems to spike even more, sandstone, smoke, marshmallows,   (78)
    • Finish
      long-ish. nice sweet, smokey & woody dry/bitterness. (86)
      A lot later: less long, complexity subsided - even feels flat now, sweet ness a bit plastic-y/artificial, drying (79)
