A belter of a smoky whisky.
Yeun Elez Jobic
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: An open door to the medicine chest, camphor and bandages, clove oil and hints of TCP. Slowly some fruit, black banana and tinned peaches seep through. The aroma of a cooling wood fire.
Palate: Serious smoke layers here that fill the palate, hints of saltine crackers and baked ham. There’s a zip of lemon zest and a tang of orange barley sweets too.
Finish: More smoke rises and then dries leaving camphor and cloves.
Comment: A belter of a smoky whisky.
Nose: Olive brine, swimming pool, celery, pear drop and subtle rubber band and pencil shavings. The inside of the first-aid cupboard and pencil case all at once. Faint coal smoke.
Palate: Anise, iodine, gentle smoke, and cinnamon — a fair bit of it. Candied ginger and a slightly rubbery note.
Finish: Medium length and gently drying, with that medicinal note lingering with some clove spice.
Comment: A trip to the first-aid box while at the sea side.
