..Yet more Viking things, let’s see… (while wondering when the Distillery are going to mail empty skulls as free gifts with any purchases)… Colour: pale gold. Nose: it noses pretty young, with a few notes of mashed potatoes and turnips at first, then more herbal notes, porridge, ale, ginger, and a touch of sherry. Perhaps a little grass smoke as well? Some sourness (those turnips) that may come from young age. Well we won’t know for sure since it’s a NAS. Mouth: at first rather rounder than I had expected and, honestly, better. I mean, more to my liking. A smoky pepper, perhaps, fruit peelings, walnuts (hence the name I suppose – joking), a touch of burnt caramel, and a clear modern-HP-ness, whatever that means. Something both coastal and mineral. Finish: rather long, and a little medicinal. Very nice finish, no roughness but it’s solid and firm. Comments: one of the better new NASses, I think. And isn’t the name funny, in a world of old rags and bones? (it’s not that Viking, S.!)
