markjedi1 gave this whisky 80 points
Color
Old gold
Nose

Dark and sweet nose on rotting wood. Sounds awful, but kinda works in this case. Add some brown sugar as well as molded wood. There is also a big herbal side. Ferns, nettles, the sap of roots. A bit special, but not unpleasant. In the distance, I do get a touch of rubber that I do not fancy.  

Taste

The body is rather light (almost watery in fact). Very sweet on apples, pears, lemon and lime juice. Ginger and liquorice. I find myself pulling faces, which is not a good sign. It has a peaty edge, meaning this one also is a mix of peated and unpeated barley. But the balance is off. It is somewhat raw and unpolished, if you know what I mean. The flavors don’t do each other any favors (note to self: you are not a poet). 

Finish

The finish is medium long, drying, smoky and sweet, but does make me long for a glass of water. 

Comments

A rough Swede, if you ask me. Quite special on the nose for which I gladly gave it the benefit of the doubt. But on the palate and finish, there was doubt no more. Not my cuppa.
