    I find it unbelievable how a maturation of ‘just’ 10 years can produce such a complex whisky. After opening this bottle I immediately bought a second bottle.
    When adding water, the nose improves but the taste goes down. Give the glass a rest for 10 minutes and the taste recovers and improves.

      Full. Mineral. Oil paint/putty. Sour apples. Hint of woodfire, sweet grain. Biscuits.
      With water it becomes even fuller, heavier. Complex. Dark, preserved fruit, warm applepie with lots of spices (cinnamon, vanilla, clove, aniseed,...). Hint of mineral.

      Soft, sweet and sour arrival. Full-on citrus fruit development. Hot on the pallate. Dry and bitter mouthfeel in the back.
      With water and time the arrival is light and mineral. The development is hot of juicy citrus fruits. The heat is now on the tongue. With a tingle (when you put your tongue to a flat 9V battery), strange sensation.

      The finish is long and minerally, warm and gassy.

      It all seems not so inviting and bland but it sure is not the case. It is more my inability to describe the sensory sensations I experience with this whisky.

    It feels very simple, but for the sake of smelling so much like Longrow 1987 MI Dreams, let's give it a little more.
    • Nose
      Bacon, coarse-grained sea salt, red-oiled duck eggs, fennel, plastic playground, electrical tape, motor oil, red phosphorus, and latex paint. Apart from the Langero of the year, there is no such distinctive peat. Alcohol is a little irritating, pine needles, western spices, pollen, stone mill, gingerbread man, cinnamon, cereal bran, black chocolate, and also faintly bring out the sweetness and sourness of cantaloupe, orange and red fruit. I guess it is less bourbon and more sherry formula.
    • Taste
      The combination of salty bitter peat, 90% black chocolate, duck protein, calcium carbonate, some tofu brine, kerosene, industrial flavor and fruit platter is unpredictable, lemon, vanilla, cake base, ginkgo, mint.
      Strong, good fat, average sweetness, little sourness, no astringency, obvious bitterness, no pungency, no alcohol.
    • Finish
      Long-lasting, peat, black pepper, sea salt, fruit acid, tea, turpentine.
