On the nose my first impression is not great. The first big hit is of straight up harsh spirit. I keep going back but very little emerges. Finally after some water I get less spirit and more grain. There is some underlying muskiness but over all is slightly uninspiring I feel. When I drink it, I feel again that it is slightly drowned out by spirit but the body is very light, smooth and pleasant. There is some sweetness and even a touch of salt left once the sweetness goes. I'm actually quite disappointed as I was hopeing for quite a lot that I haven't found, even the finish, long as it is, does not make me rush back. I will need to wait a while and come back though. Perhaps me or the bottle has had a bad day. There was no unpleasantness or sulphur etc, this was just not as complex, interesting or sweet as I had expected.
