This is not the most interesting Silver Needle I came across. It will be interesting to track its aging process though. It takes a while to open up, but once it does, the liquor has a medium body and the taste is quite strong, albeit not too distinctive. The aromas I get are the standard ones – dry grass, forest floor, florals and mushrooms, as well as some fruit in the wet leaf. The taste is quite sweet and citrusy with notes of lemon balm, lemongrass and pine. Astringency is mostly felt in the throat and is quite strong, but not overpowering.
