Online tasting note for reference: (from tastingbros 88 pts)
A lot of Juniper mixed with a lot of citruses giving an amazing freshness! Wow, that's impressive.
If you wait a bit more you'll find some leather, dusty books, candied orange zest, hints of nutmeg and even hints of old rustic wood.
The alcohol integration is perfect and the texture is oily too. Here we have a very well balanced kind of sherry profile! Powerful junipers at start that quickly decreases to let the place to some delicious spices, cinnamon, white pepper and also some raw leather, candied orange, dark chocolate, bitter cocoa, old bubblegum note, green wood, dusty library, a lot of citruses adding some freshness to the mix. A very interesting balance between freshness, dryness and roundness.
Mid-Long. In perfect harmony with the mouth except that it's mainly the freshness and the bitterness than will lingers the most, so the end of the mouth.
The first nose was a real surprise, it makes me think of a special Gin with all those junipers and citruses. A very fresh, powerful and complex whisky. What a nice surprise finally!
