Bhutan. Bought for 8 $ in a shop on the side of a road.
Ashen, caramel, fruit salad predominantly oranges. The palate is as fruity as the nose suggests but is also spicy despite a slight rough on a slightly platonic texture. The finish is heavily orange and a little smoke. Could look like a smoked and ash Balvenie. A value for money to make many Scottish whiskeys blush.
Trout not freshly caught and cigarette ash mixed with some branches of fennel. The finish is deeply spicy and pungent as if it were a cask strength, with a rusty metal base and barrel of metal in which a campfire is made. Like the blends, the final falls a bit too steep but despite its somewhat crooked nose, in the peasant style unpretentious at the limit of harshness, I like, especially for a bottle that could pass as negligible .
Salt on the nose and light spices. On the palate spices take the place, if not a touch of metal that does not bother me too much for once. Final rather short, but still nice, which allows the salt to come back. A nice surprise considering that I had no waiting ... Or rather, I expected to be very disappointed!
