    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.
    • 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.
