  1. erikz scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Nose needs some time, at first only glue and spirit. Opens up to a lightly floral nose with a hint of smoke, some earl grey and sweets.  Peppery candy on the palate, light but still oily, vanilla and caramel. Quite the sweet dram this. Finish is sweet and sour, salty, white pepper and (medium) long.

    By the way, this punches above its weight. Its only 40 abv but hits the palate resembling more like over 50 abv.With a drop of water the nose stays about the same, a bit of caramel comes to the foreground. Earl grey weakens, sweets still there. The palate is way lighter and lost some of its punch.
    Finish feels like carbonated water now, never had this kind of experience with whisky. Nice new style of finish for me.
