Member Ratings and Notes
Sweet and woody and spicy and rich and good. Finishes slightly rough and hot, and as the glass is finished this becomes a problem. Yet this whisky continues to surprise as you drink it. Add a few drops of water.
Nose is subtle. Really soapy taste, and medicinal. Finish comes in waves and changes. Better with water.
Develops from soft to bold. Lasting finish.
Nice deviation -- mint and licorice.
Odd and unexpected nose. Palate is velvety, with spice and ginger.
Pure alcohol, maybe a 50/50 mix of Isopropyl and sterno, stored in musty wood.
This was a great find. Creamy with lemon zest. Alcohol is strong, but mixes with the other flavors well. Even after a night of tasting this held up.
