3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2013 Had this in brewery April 2013. I had this again in bottle at Jan & Charlotte’s, Ulfborg, Denmark in company of Jan, Charlotte, Craig, Stella and Loz 20.05.13 Pours very dark brown with tan head, a light fruity sourness with some vanilla on nose. Tangy in mouth, maybe a little plastic at back, sour, fruity and with little sweetness. Really tangy fruitiness the whisky ageing is rather secondary, you can certainly tell that this has been aged close to the Sour Grapes. Interesting and pretty decent. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6
