    from a purchased sample
    • Nose
      Ash/coal, mixed along with those farmy notes -- both cheese and dung. A
      bit more waxy lemon, oil, almonds (dull, raw slivers), custard, and
      menthol. Almost orange sherbert. Definitely these light citric fruits -
      grapefruit, blood oranges, and kumquats. (with water) Brings out
      everything. More, more, more! This doesn't just swim well, it surpasses
      Michael Phelps. Let's just stop here and see how it fares in the mouth.
    • Taste
      Little sharp and bitter, and that incredible oily waxiness (is wax
      oily?) with the usual ashy cover and lemon zest and rind. Honey, stale
      nuts, cheese, and barnyard. If it was on the nose, it's here. I love
      those whiskies that live up to the nose. (with water) Spicier, white
      wine, oils, almond skins, and... you get the idea. Stunning.
    • Finish
      Just top notch and follows up on everything else. My job here is done.
