    An unusual American, that much is clear. But not worth the effort at
    this time, for it is far too young and hence rough and bitter. Having said
    that, I do believe this could turn into a beautiful product, given a longer
    beauty sleep in the cask. The mesquite smokiness is unique and pleasant. Thanks
    for the sample, Ruben.
    • Nose
      The nose is, to put it mildly, unusual. Perfumed and flowery. Grasses. Very
      sweet. Citrus, cinnamon and dandelion. The mesquite smoke translates into a
      light touch of charcoal. But the whole is very soft and reminds me a bit of
      geneva. Like I said, unusual.
    • Taste
      It is fairly oily, but on the palate I immediately get the feeling again
      that I am sipping a geneva. Well, apart from that smokiness. I do not believe
      there is such a thing as smoky geneva, is there? Very sweet and smoky with a
      hint of oak that is all but subtle. Absolutely spirit. Grain and grass. Midpalate,
      it turns quite bitter. And still. It has something, well, unusual. I am
      repeating myself here.
    • Finish
      The finish is the big flaw of this American single malt. Not only short,
      but it also allows the bitter oak to put its foot down much to heavily.
