We have passed through the stargate into another dimension of flavours. A madness of high esters confronts us. Pear drops, bubblegum, juicy fruits, fruit salad juice, pineapple gummy bears and foam banana sweeties. With water it moves towards sweet herbal liqueurs, chamomile, fizzy sherbet, ancient Jamaican rums, lemon oils, sweet tar extracts and warm greenhouses. The taste is otherworldly. Toasted peach stones, champagne cocktails, key lime jelly, almond extracts, coconut water, lime leaf, toasted wood spices and tea tree oil. A splash of dilution and there’s sandalwood embers, olive oil, gorse bush, creamy coconut macaroon and final, pyroclastic thrust of grassy, fruity esters. Unlike any other type of whisky. An intergalactic thrill-ride in the starship of your choice!
