The colour is white wine and the texture shows many small sticky tears that slowly consolidate. The nose is all about immature phenols with many cheesy and feinty off-notes. Sorry, but this is rather disgusting to me, Jack! The initial mouthfeel is better with warming and coating moments, that is really okay. The taste is surprisingly sweet with powerful phenols in a nice balance. Not overly complex, but what I call okayish. The finish is quite long and sticky with some minor drying notes (cardboardy). Water improves the nose a little bit but much more the taste and finish that both offer more flavours. Even the slight drying notes go away with some water added so this dram is an excellent swimmer!
A Janus-sided whisky with an ugly nose but a quite nice taste - simply skip the nosing and sip it straight away (with some water added)!
