Finish: Alcohol Alcohol Alcohol Fruit Apple Cherry Sweet Grape

Comment: very hot. More time in a barrel would really help this whisky. The strongest alcoholic taste ruins this whisky completely.

Nosing: Cherry Chocolate Berries honestly not the most complex of noses. it has a dryness on the nose though. Adding water it's so, so much nicer, Strawberry rose hips, Herbs soft spices of Cinnamon like notes. maybe cardamom.

Taste: Berries Cherry Strawberry Sweet Oak Red Currant with water added there is a richer mouthfeel.

Finish: Melon Cherry Cinnamon

Comment: You need to add water and time to this one. I tried neat and almost thought I got ripped off. There was just nothing going on on the nose, the taste was a bit of a joke. But cutting down some of the hotness really brings out what this has to offer. Would be nice if there was an age statement, feels like it needs more time, but with water it's good. More time could've made it incredible though.
