A seagul accidenlty got hit. Might as well have an OP 17 in its honor.
This whisky is really hitting the spot tonight.
Getting a lot more of the classic OP character, but a lot more spices and other complexities from the extra age.
Mango, salt, dried apricots, and some subtle spices linger throughout.
Good bit of black pepper today. Its nice and easily drinkable, but its very sutble fruit with a lot of black pepper, and some simple syrup. Perhaps a touch of creme in there too.
Like I said very simple but easily enjoyable.
Butter and oil, with a good bit of toasted coconut, and some nice peaty flavors in there. A solid peaty whisky, though not what anyone who loves the Islay beasts are looking for. But for someone like me who likes peatlight so to speak, a solid exposure to peat, and very enjoyable.
As it has been opened it is now a lot more bareable without water, though still incredibly harsh. Some nice deep golden toast, and fried eggs with lots of fresh cracked black pepper. With a healthy side of nice tart green apples, and coconut shavings. But a heck of a lot of alcohol burn. With a touch of ash in there too.
Dilute it with a touch of water, and it comes alive:
Oily, green apples, and coconut, with a good bit of vanilla, still got the cracked pepper but a lot sweeter and no longer burning the whole time.
