  1. riekio scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Very smoky and spicy on the palate, interesting nose.
    With water the spices are more balanced and not as up front, with sweeter notes prevailing. Prefer this with water
    • Nose
      mango, concentrated window cleaner, black pepper, fruit stripe bubble gum, touch of salt, celery, mint, hint of matchstick
      With water, the syrup notes come through more with less spice, and finally a touch of the smoke is there. Sweeter on blackberry compote
    • Taste
      big blast of peat and salt, mesquite, maple syrup, very spicy, ash
      with water: sweeter, again more syrup, a red berry or black berry syrup along with maple, the ashiness is muted somewhat
    • Finish
      more salt on the finish, some bacon fat, green mangoes and bananas, molasses/syrup on the linger, more ash
      with water: stronger bacon/meaty notes, riper tropical fruits than without water, and again stronger syrup notes
