Nose
Fig, sweet & sour sauce, a dark kind of malt, pepper, curry, vanilla, caramel and tangerine.

Taste
Pepper, fig, caramel, apple, curry, vanilla, malt and smoke. With water it starts tasting like a cheap fig liquor, so better to keep it at bottle strength.

Finish
Caramel, pepper, apple, vanilla, curry and smoke.

Comments
Notes from batch 24. For my notes of older batches, see Whiskybase.

Nose
Spicy chocolate, dry wood, mixed spices, slightly coffee and some bread. After water more herbs appear, I am thinking cumin.

Taste
Powerful and intense arrival with some warm smoke and a waxy texture that goes into the development with spicy chocolate, chili pepper, dates, raisins and licorice. Water brings down the intensity of the arrival but the flavor profile stays intact.

Finish
The finish is warm and spicy, soft peat smoke, mixed spice and citrus. Water brings black pepper and lemon zest.

Comments
tasted it blind, really difficult to put my finger on what distillery but was stuck in Scotland. My first thoughts were Benromach 10 CS but does not contains the same rubbery Mezcal notes as the fantastic Benromach. This was much sweeter, probably PX-casks. Maybe a singel cask Benriach? Nope an Amrut intermediate! Really good stuff!

Nose
Barley sugar, vanilla, rubber, walnuts, white glue and raspberry soda.

Taste
Sweet oak, barley spirit, mild artificial banana flavor, some balanced smoke, gentle spices, mild black pepper in particular and cough drop (called bafucin in Sweden). Again barley spirit.

Finish
Sweet and warm but shorter than expected from the palate. Kind of finish as a blend for some reason. The banana flavored cough drop remains in the tail.

Comments
Not bad, not excellent. It's youth is prominent and it feels quite bright. Although a lot of flavors when looking for them they are not well integrated. However given time and some water it becomes interesting.
