to be honest looking at the rates of my friends I had very high expectations, but boy what was I disappointed. An average dram for a astronomical price.. biggest disappointment of 2018 so far...... now I feel like a sad panda :(
Update: did have some left, tried it tonight. Better experience then yesterday. Updated score accordingly
first on the nose, nice forest fruits and there is definitely something dirty in there. unfortunately nose becomes weak quite fast in the glass, lacked some oompff
first taste very oily / watery feeling, sweet. fruit follows after with some spices, although the lower ABV, taste holds up its own.
finish not very fruity, oak prevails here after the taste. some earl grey tea flavors. Short to medium finish
