    I remembered my nose - a clear cucumber pickle, which subsequently goes into red currants

    Dave Broom says:

    Nose
    Soft and deep with an instant savoury element that’s mixed with cooked black cherry, sour plum and damson jam. There’s a whiff of asafoetida and horseradish leaf, and then polished oak and a little walnut. Mortlach is there, but has been gently moulded into a new shape. Water ups the exotic elements without any loss of depth or character.

    Palate
    A mix of meatiness with red and black fruits, pomegranate, molasses and roasted pepper. Thick, caramelised sweetness with almost jellied fruits. Rich, unusual and complex. Again, I’d keep this neat.

    Finish
    Long and densely fruited. Savoury.

    Conclusion
    This grape is a Cabernet Sauvignon/Alicante Bouschet cross, which grows on the northern coast of the Black Sea. The finish was 18 months, this time in French oak. All of these are sensitively handled and offer a really exciting development. Not in the UK – but surely it’s only a matter of time.

    Right place, right time
    Eating roast venison with a cherry and plum sauce.

    Score: 8,8/10

    Everything is smooth but firm, distinctive features: the taste of almond milk, a pleasant light finish.
    I want to return to him if that)

    Good project and very interesting experience,high-collectible bottle.
    But.... it's not a whisky any more - it's a grappa!
    I have a few bottles of grappa, there is no difference between this whisky and those grappa. In my opinion this whisky was overexposed in the cask.
