    The whisky is clearly on the spicy side with relatively little fruit flavor. He has nice wood / barrel notes, but for me is also somewhat one-dimensional. He opens up something with water, but he just lacks the complexity.
    • Nose
      Smoke, alcohol and acid (lemon juice). Slightly musty stall note and bright, fresh wood. Cooling nose like through some eucalyptus. After a while, the smoke evaporates and light, bright fruits like fresh plums come through, then dry leaves and hay. With water he opens something, more fruits come, but still dominates this ashtray-smokiness. After further waiting, I smell coke bottles and a subtle leather note
    • Taste
      As if I had a cold tobacco pipe in my mouth. The alcohol beats something, the whisky is now sweeter. After some time then again bitterness, it comes dark chocolate, with water also espresso. The water also makes it easier, and there are no really new flavors added. Overall, the whisky is very spicy.
    • Finish
      Pipe tobacco, dark chocolate / espresso and wood also dominate here. The finish is relatively long and again on the clearly spicy side. Very late then some licorice.
