A strange blind tasting. Today I had a very idiosyncratic whisky (with an estimated 60% alcohol content) in the glass. An indefinable spice dominates the taste, the finish is really dominated only by sharpness. In my opinion, the nose is still the best component of this blind sample.
Edit: During the post-tasting of the rest of the sample, my impressions coincide with the first blind tasting. A strange whisky. Not bad, but not the "Burner".
Blind tasting: Discreet sherry notes mingle with vanilla and light earth tones. The alcohol is harmoniously integrated, apricots and peaches are added. Do I smell a fine peat note there? A harmonious spice superimposes the remaining aromas. Over time, the nose dulls off, the light earthy aromas persist.
Edit: After the addition of water, I imagine again to notice a slight peat note. Pale wood and a hint of fruit are also present.
Wow, a high alcohol content beats mercilessly, followed by fruit flavors and spicy wood. It bizzles and prickles in the entire mouth area, this whisky urgently needs a drink of water. After the addition of water "exhausted" wood comes to the fore. Seasoning and then slight sharpness which is getting more and more intense.
With this sharpness the departure begins. Pale wood tones penetrate through the sharpness, fruit flavors emerge. A slightly bitter walnut aroma dominates the eternally long finish.
