Tasting notes of Tomasz:

15. Mar 2019
Nosing:
strange, strong, glue and skin
Taste:
Dry fruits, raisins, apples, ginger, salted caramel, something like a skin and lacquer, bitter oak. All is very intensive, bitter - dry - tart profile.
Finish:
very long, dry, slightly spicy. It stayes with varnish kind of thing and is very pleasant.
Comment: This is probably the most intense, and not smoky, dram of whisky I had. Taste hits the palete imidiately with intense flavores. And it ony develops with its complexity. Nose howevere is not so pleasant. And finish is the best. For price it is definitely a must have for those who like dry - bitter profile but with lots of other things going on with skin, nice spiciness and also deep fruity sweetness.

Nosing: Orange Apple Oak
Very fruity. Mandarins and baked apple. Noticable oak coming through.

Taste: Vanilla Caramel Spices
Sweet arrival, vanilla caramel, rich spiciness. Turns dry towards the end

Finish: Spices Pepper
Medium to long, drying and remains spicy, with some pepperiness developing.

Comment:
This was a new one for me, and I have to say I was impressed. It is very well rounded and there's a lot to like. The nose is really powerful, and the taste very refined. It definitely benefits from a little water being added. It is a little more expensive than most standard releases, but the value is there. Definitely worth trying.
