Young and spirity. Grapes, or make that a chilled grappa. Nail polish remover and sharp mustard. Vanilla coconut and fresh lime. There's a little gin-side to this whisky. Juniper berries and coriander seeds. Potatoes and possibly some salty black bean sauce. Lemon candies.
Adding water is almost a necessity. Citrus and rosemary flavours match pretty aniseed-like aromas. Some pastis notes and pink peppercorns.
The palate is an overwhelming mix of grain biscuits and lime juice. Canned pineapple and a strong alcohol flavour. The mouthfeel is rather creamy. Peaches and clove.
Water gives me green chillies, jalapeños to be precise. A minimal bitterness from young fresh rosemary twigs and sugared lemon candy.
A nice warming finish with a sweet touch. The chillies make sure you'll enjoy this long aftertaste.
