Nose
Autumnal with lots of chanterelle/truffle, violet and rancio. The deep decayed concentration drifts into soy, and dense fruits. Fungal and funky with a feral foxy touch. [that's enough alliteration: Ed] Mature.
Palate
Dense and fruity concentrated with mulberry jam. The buzz of alcohol enhances the mystery. A big, rich bruiser that's rooted in the earth.
Finish
Big fat raisin. Sweet.
Comment
Another often dismissed distillery comes out swinging.

Nose
Oaky. Sap, freshly sawed wood. New leather. Developing on praline and toffee. With water, opens on outdoors fragrances. Moss, touch of vetiver.
Palate
Dry. Wood immediately takes the lead and displays astringent notes interlaced with liquorice.
Finish
Very dry. Burning
Comment
One could expect more smoothness and refined character from a 17 Years Old. The bitterness is quite invading but not inviting.
