ABV: 42% ABV
Age: 5 Years
Nose: Honey, pear, corn. Young, fruity and toffee like.
Taste: Young, malty. Wet cardboard. Green, wet wood. Thin, no heat on the palate.
Finish: Short, gross and malty. Young and crafty.
Overall: I don’t like this. It’s not wretch inducing, but it’s young and crafty without a lot of complexity. If I had to guess, I’d probably pin this on Hudson, or someone in that wheelhouse. The reveal tells me that this is Diednocker, which I thought was a cryptic name for the blind sample. Turns out that Diednocker is a real thing, something I’d not heard about before. It’s an incredibly tiny batch size each year, and apparently acclaimed to some, but it’s not good. Save yourself the time. Cool to try, though.
