Plenty of science but no artistry...a domestic disappointment...

34
Drayman's Highveld single Malt Whisky French Oak Reserve 43%
Dynamic nose of intense vanilla, rumtopf, spicy fruit cake mix swimming in sherry and candied citrus peel.
The palate, however, is watery thin.
A hint of vanilla, then a fierce fiery chilli that ambushes the throat finishing with a new make grapey finish...mampoer style.
Quite a nice grappa actually.
Water enhances the fabulous nose but makes the palate more wretched and undrinkable. 66 (Nose 82 Palate 50)
