Seven Stills


At first blush it seems watery. Nose has heat & green witches hair growing in the southern summer. Some sweet fruitiness too, perhaps an apricot, maybe butter & brown sugar. 

Mouth is a little weak, however the flavor packs a surprising complexity. Chocolate, peppery heat, oak vanillan & a nice smokiness otb and more semisweet chocolate morsels. 

Water brings a warmth but it is pleasing & envelopes the tongue like satin. Some green peppercorn, more bitter smoke. 

All in all a very enjoyable dram, if a bit young.   3.5
