      Dirty greens, celery, moss and asphalt. Heavily smoked preserved mustard, then melted cement, Indian jujubes and some dried dates. Also engine oil, tar, dirty cotton and a little bit of green apples. After more than 30min in the glass, roasted macadamia nuts, taro and white sesame. More yuba with dripping oil after a sip.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Toffee to start, some citrus zest and rotten hami melons. Later on, celery, beetroots, black peppers and some kiwi, and mostly greens like wax gourd rind to finish up. White wall paint and yuba also.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Paraffin, white pills, yuba, sugar-coated baked potato skin, beetroot, kiwi skin, not so smoky here but rather it showed long-lasting mellow toffee and red beans.

    Balance (22)
    Very tasty, endless finish (89) blind tasting (well almost)
    • Nose
      The aroma is dry, bread notes. Cowshed, spicy wood ... sour raw dough. The aroma is closed, it is felt that several layers are hidden. Eucalyptus?
    • Taste
      Sweet fruits, ash with salt and machine oil, fried meat (22.5)
    • Finish
      Oily finish, iodine, ash and vanilla with fruit .... peppermint gum (23)

  7. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2011] Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 60 Euro in September, 2011.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90. My notes state "bold and impressive".
