N: This one starts with a big sweet-funk potency and water wont subdue its eagerness. Potency is the word, and maltiness – a glossy maltiness with sweet barley grasses, a little baking [sponge>pastry base], buttered peas & sea kale, sweetened button mushrooms, musk-y wood.
T: Edgy spirit, with a brash arrival. Water will temper things initially only for the pepper to make a scene later on. I found it needed 50/50 dilution for the malt to flow. Nothing profound here but if you have the inclination after this ‘work’, youll find some nice action.
F: So, with 50/50 theres some chocolate-y, fruity maltiness – whisky-like finish :]
C: Good yet needy. A reaffirmation of my love for this OTR distillery, given the subtle complexities that manage to exist in such astringent conditions.Scores a B
