n: cherries and shoe polish. Kero syrup with water

p: Bold and entertaining. Vulcanized rubber meets maple syrup and honeysuckle. Bizarre in a fun way. Water tames but doesn't develop anything new. Finish is like biting a tire and forgetting to let go.

N: Fantastic sherried nose that is bright, tart and slightly acidic.  Hibiscus tea, raspberry, black berry, leather, varnished mahogany, melted hard candy, toasted baguette with exotic spices.  There just so much going on here: vinegar, mustard, and melted butter.

P: Just as good on the palate.  Theres a good balance of sherry fruit sweetness that is mixed with dry tobacco.  A lot of heat/ spice from cayenne in the astringent mid palate.  All the flavors contrast beautifully.  The sherry is in line with fruit jams and marmalade.  

F: The dry lengthy finish is wonderfully bitter with smoke, espresso and roasted seaweed.

 

A ton of stuff to find in this whisky.  Its really stands out because so much is going on, yet it manages to amalgamate.  Yet another great example of 1972 distillate but this one seperates itself becuase of the pronounced acidity and spice.  Epic stuff!

The nose has notes of magic marker, solvent, and some fruit juice. There's some vanilla and other notes, but every time they try to come out they're beaten down by the chemical notes. The palate starts with light, sweet notes; it's watery. It has some oak, but it develops quickly into bitterness and trails off with chemical solvent notes. The finish is bitter and chemically.
