Six drops of water take out the barley malt, another six more drops, it comes a few ripe apples to it, the more water the less barley and this is gradually a little hospital corridor and disinfectant and a distant cardamom note.
Mouth: there's some alcohol in it. Liquorice, little sweetened Turkish honey (that's how I imagine it), refreshing and soft and warmer. It is quite typical for a new make, but a very good one, if you dare to put 66.6% pure in your mouth, you will be pleasantly surprised by how soft and oily the feeling on the tongue is.
Finish: short, but following the mouthfeel, warm and malty.
I'm curious what's coming out of the barrel in a few years, you of St. Kilian are on a very good way with the White Dog!
Conclusion: on the web you will find various cocktail creations. I have tried a Sour so far, but the New Make-character is very strong and that does not really fit my taste. Nevertheless, something that you can have at home, so far, all guests were surprised how good this unripe malt brandy is!
