    Excuse me, does anyone have a spare bottle of this they'd like to get rid of? Jeez, this is something else.
    • Nose
      A whiff of rubber and diesel makes way for subtle notes of ripe fruits like mango, banana and apricot, followed by sweet barley aromas. Overall though, this is a tad shy. Maybe adding water helps? Yes, it does. It brings out a more mineral side, with a touch of lavender and lemon zest. Also, it reveals an intense waxiness.
    • Taste
      Again, rubber is what comes to mind first. Quite an industrial first impression. Certainly unlike anything I've ever had from any other distillery. Even at almost 65 percent, this performs well. Lots of candle wax, hints of honey too. Quite earthy, as well a good amount of chili pepper. Man, this is quite an experience that I find hard to put into words. Water mellows it a bit, and makes it even more waxy, if that's possible. It also highlights a previously overlooked fruity side. Think sweet apples and green grapes. I think I'm in love.
    • Finish
      Lingering spices and fruitiness. Beeswax. Long.
