Nose: This is young and oaky. At first there’s a young metallic note and a rather protruding oakiness covering everything else. It’s very spirity and sharp around the edges. After a while a small sweet and malty note starts to come through and it gets accompanied by a caramel sweetness. The oakiness is quite spicy and fresh and the whole thing is over-oaked by a big margin and it overpowers a small peat note somewhere in the center. As time passes it becomes more and more vanilla rich and hints of marzipan is added to the mix as well as minty sweets. There’s no easy to find fruitiness. Maybe some red over-cooked apples in the background. This is a very unbalanced nose which needs a lot of time in the glass to be tolerable.
Mouth: It starts out with a thin vanilla note and a spicy oakiness. It feels thin and flavourless except for the oak. It’s very spirity and metallic and it’s quite unpleasant. It quickly grows a bit bitter in the back and the oakiness is astringent and too much a part of the whole. This is, in this case, a good thing. There’s a mix of anis root, a mild smokiness and coffee in the back which develops over time and the vanilla note gets accompanied by the caramel note as well.
Finish: The vanilla and the spicy oakiness is dominating the tranisition. It still is very unpleasant, young and metallic in the back. It fortunately dies down rather quickly and leaves the oakiness as the main feature all through the finish. It’s a fresh woodshop oakiness and it’s dry and astringent. In the back There are still notes of coffee with a hint of cacao and marzipan as well. This is not a good whisky in any way. It’s too young and way over-oaked.
This whisky is aged in heavily charred barrels for 4 years. It’s made from gently peated moravian malt. It has natural colour.
