N: Big oranges, epoxy, resinous, sweet, some rubber, grape fruit drink, coconut. P: Hard to describe, a weird and synthetic fruit taste. Very concentrated. F: Bitters, some heat, then a lot of wood. Wacky but good.
Nose of solvent and resin, rather acrid. There's brine, with a tinge of smoke, along with a "toasted" note and hints of tea and fall leaves. Slight apricot. The palate hits with great fruits and big spices -- orange and grapefruit soemwhat overpowered by a spice cabinet (cinnamon, clove). Salt and leathery stuff enters next. Really big and tasty. Finish is a long fade with minty and peppery stuff. Salt lingers. The general profile reminds me of a salty Tomatin.
Overall an enjoyable whisky, though after time a chemical/synthetic aspect emerges that hurts the experience, and there's a tinge of over-tannic oaky stuff that impinges on drinkability. Still though, I'll drink this any day.
