Distibutor's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Roots and leafy notes, warm smoked ham, with light Nescafé, yeast and herbs. Hints of bread with berry jams in the background – the sherry stays on the backplane. A light coastal breeze. Rubber too. There’s a warm side hinting at Lagavulin but it could be another distillery as well.

Palate: Still this warm profile with ashes and coal, smoked meat, tobacco and a caramel sweetness. Mid-palate it gains spicy notes (nutmeg, pepper), tart orange and a more winey and rubbery side. Not bad but not perfectly integrated in my opinion. More herbs and liquorice towards the end.

Finish: Medium, ashy, with a hint of cocoa and herbs.

 

The Wu Dram Clan came about when three whisky fanatics from around the world happened to meet on Islay and formed a lifelong friendship. The group consists of Takesado from Japan, Boris from Munich, and Sebastian from the Black Forest, Germany. Each of the founding members brings a unique skillset to the table and all adhere to the philosophy that what matters entirely is "the content of the bottle. We have made it our goal to bottle only selected spirits. We stand for quality and sensory perception."
