Just poured a 2nd dram of the Wasmund's. I'm really trying to give this one a fair chance.
The nose is very 'spirity', almost too much. There is alot that just wants to present itself here, but this stuff just has not been given the chance (4 mos old). Some charred wood and very strong alcohol is all I can get from the nose at this time.
On the palate it's all very thin, some bitterness and malts, more wood (cedar and pine?). I really think if this stuff was given the chance (longer maturation), it really could be an enjoyable single malt.
The finish is short, there just isn't alot going on here.
Thanks Secesh for sending the samples over. I'm glad I had a chance to try it, as you really need to try it to understand this at all. Like I said, with time this could be a really good whisky.
