Tasting Notes by rwbenjey

The nose was quite a surprise when I first opened the bottle; a strange strawberry hint...afterward turning to dense, overripe fruit, creme, and barley.

When it hits the palate, creme fruit is first and the peat and pepper swiftly follow. They don't pack too much of a punch, just enough to tell you they are main contenders. Grass and seaweed are on the shorter finish. This stuff, after the first sip, seems to evaporate in your mouth. A very unique whisky.
