Sweet peat right from the start. Lots of rubbery notes and smouldering wood. A pinch of salt. Smoked sprat on the barbecue. Orange juice with natural sugars, heather and and egg yolk from a boiled egg. With some time in the glass the whisky gets sweeter. Babies' porridge with apple and banana.
With water the rubber is a bit more pronounced. Something like creamy rubber tires.
The smoke is a lot more pronounced with medicinal notes. Mint and eucalyptus. The smoke is even more stronger at the back of the throat. Peppermint pastille and citrus. A slight hint of spices. Piment d'espelette perhaps?
Water adds a sweet touch to it. More peppery notes too. The smoke has been pushed to the back. A pleasant bitter touch.
A smoky finale with a mouthful of peppermint pastilles, some wood notes and bitter beer.
