Tasting Notes by galg
Nose: at over 60% abv this one is quite sharp with alcohol, then it begins with some Vegetal notes as well as flower petals and coconut. On 2nd sniff we get some vanilla and citrus on the edge. A bit of white chocolate is also evident after a few minutes of rest in the glass. a pleasant nose, but a bit weird.
Palate: The palate was too harsh and alcoholic without some aqua for me (which is not very common, I like my drams at CS) : With water it gets bitter sweet with cocoa burnt sugar and warm wood. Ginger powder and cloves. With some vanilla and coconut from the nose. Not ultra complex, and lacking something. Can’t really put my finger, but it doesn’t mix well. The sun is less than the sun of its parts here… Finish: OK medium length, with quite the same flavors from the palate. that’s it.
