Member Ratings and Notes

N:A faint and almost briny hint of smoke in the background; a lightly mineral presence with some noticeable young malt up front. Faintly grassy, there's a smell that almost smells like Comet cleanser (and not in an altogether bad way). Lightly honeyed. Later, a bit of vanilla.  

P: Malt upfront, a nice dash of chili oil. A subtle oily quality liek a pair of used work gloves. Faintly greasy. Plenty of heat. 

F: Heat initially, a lightly briny reemergence on the finish, lightly briny again and slightly mentholated; a touch of light waxines.
 
Unusual but not bad. Fun in a zippy, young whisky kind of way.

Nose:  very light with grainy/grassy notes and a bit of wet cardboard.

Palate:  Clean, malty palate with emerging sweetness.

Finish:  The malt yields to a more coastal profile with seaweed and a minerally character.

 

Decent stuff.
