Fresh and teriffic
A very fresh whiskey, little gras, gently smoky, with water the tastes comes through and you can almost feel the Alp air.
No Scot comes even close. Sorry.

This is all beach-grass with a bonfire off in the distance. Wish I had a Yamazaki to taste against, but on its own, just terrific. No sherry cloying, smoke only the very faintest, none of the "whiskey distillery" taste that you get in even the lightest Oban and Scapa scotches. Seriously, it's all a day at a secluded beach. Really like nothing I've ever had before. Underappreciated IMO. It's $65 in Texas and well worth it. At $110 I'd still even consider it, just for its simplicity and uniqueness.

I don't believe it! Upon opening the bottle and pouring, two comments from about the room were to the effect "what stinks"? Not only does it have a strong odor, but also really a lot of bite. Might be better at 40% (80 Proof).
Texas Single Malt Whisky and inexpensive single malt Irish and Scotch are much more enjoyable.
