The dustiness sets an ominous vibe, but is immediately lifted by the pleasure of a creamy white wine presence. Sichimi with a surprising dose of antiseptic and burnt plastic.
Palate & Finish:
Incredibly syrupy at first with the sweet condensed grapes, it’s full of tropical fruits. There is a wet peaty character coming through; meanwhile the polished woodiness is elongated, a clean but well constructed delivery.
Wet earthiness with a sea weed-y influence, with a hint of digestive biscuits sipping through.
I dig it. There is a certain fascination to a dram that displays authentic rugged characters without crossing the line and becoming unrefined.
