  3. thijs100 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    This is a bit of a schizo-dram. The nose is very fine and shows some nice complexity. I don't care much for the palate. Too spicy and harsh.
    • Nose
      Light fruit ith apples, banana and lemon. Zesty. A hint of smoke and fairly malty. Some grassy element, hay and heather.
    • Taste
      Light peat smoke, slightly dry and peppery. Pretty spicy and dirty, quite an attack on the taste buds, even at 46 percent abv. A hint of toffee and coconut.
    • Finish
      Smoke and cigarette ash. Toasted barley. Slightly bitter, but in the end some fruit re-appears.

    Blind tasting of a sample from Erik.
    Funny how this one transforms from that fresh fruity bourbon nose to a pretty dirty taste and 'dark' finish. I like the nose better than the taste.
    • Nose
      Green apple, lime, vanilla, almond and a whiff of smoke. After a while also a good amount of caramel.
    • Taste
      Caramel, smoke, hazelnut, fig, lime, malt and light pepper. Quite dirty.
    • Finish
      Toffee, cocoa, hazelnut, cereals, smoke and a little tobacco.
