You are right Nick the tastes are tremendous. For a moment I thought you mixed it with a bit of jagermeister or so before sending it. It might be the most interesting of the three I am tasting tonight. If I may compare I would compare this one to a young Laphroaig, different but also extreme.
Wild Turkey Rare Breed 54.1% batch #wt-3rb(thank you Treaclesponge)
n: the smelling volume is turned down quiet a bit compared to the 8 and 12yo. vanilla, raisins, bergamot, assam tea, beeswax, oak, a little rye maybe
p: herbal like Becherovka but not as strong.
f: oak, tea, eucalyptus
c: seems older than the 12yo. Not sure what to think about this one yet. the other WT's have a very strong own identity, this one a lot less.
