Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonLots of spices, dried complex fruits. Berries also, nice. Licorice and quite lots of it. Interesting. Promising. Very intense on the spices, complex dried fruits. Licorice and perhaps some whiffs of tobacco, especially in the aftertaste. Quite dark style and very enjoyable.
Krishna NukalaFragrant & Fruity: with water, some complexities develop, this does not appear to be an ordinary whisky. Takes time to evolve, lots of dry fruits, oh! do I get faint smoke? Nice sweet and mild spices.Lovely spicy finish. Blind tasting notes MMA 2013
