Personal Comment
A rather complex nose, mix of malt and wood but keeping a pleasant freshness, cut grass-like. A slight tingling due to the alcohol degree, before adding some drops of water. After adding water, the woody smell (or is it meat?) becomes even more evident. In the palate, a real firework of flavours, from the citrus fruit acidity to the sweetness of malt, with some chocolate hints and a kind of woody bitterness. A very nice finish, lingering and as complex as the nose and palate were, with still this mix of citrus acidity, malt sweetness and wood bitterness.

This whisky is probably a perfect example of the difference you can experience between a new opened bottle, and one opened since q while, where aeration has had its effects. The impressions are quite different between the first tasting and the second one...
The nose is exceptionall fresh, cut grass, ripe fruits, spring flowers. In the palate, same sensation of freshness, both smooth and strong, because of the percentage of alcohol, both sweet and bitter, mixing impressions very close to honey with fine woody ones. The finish is from the same nature, lingering, both smooth and bitter, very warm, due to the high percentage of alcohol.

Personal Comment
The first nose is quite farmy with fragrances of wet hay and undergrowth hints. But there is mores in this nose, some smoke, a touch of plum jam, some peat as well.
The mouth is quite metallic, and relatively austere, but rather fresh and not unpleasant.
The finish is first freshly acid and develops on some fruity notes to end on acid hints and the austerity of the mouth is quickly coming back.

Whisky is an alcoholic drink. Let's prefer quality to quantity as the abuse of alcohol beverages can damage the health. Consuming alcoholic drinks during pregnancy, even in small quantities, can seriously affect the health of the child. Consumption of alcohol impairs your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health problems.
