I like this whisky quite a lot. Nose of bright apple, with something floral like scented hand soap, and also a little tinge of actual soap. Palate -- yum! A burst of lighter fall fruits, with those apples from the nose, with a great spice mix (cinnamon most notably), some lemon. Finishes nicely with pleasing heat. Great/Excellent, B+/A-
N: First nose is bizarrely overripe smelling, like decaying fruit, and slightly butyric. The less desirable aspects fade with time. P: Thankfully the nose does not represent the palate, what comes through is punchy fruit with mineral notes. Really enjoyable. F: Lemon and wet stones (on the nose). This is odd stuff, but I really like it.
