I posted this a few years back: (closed thread)EC12 fuzz?I'm into my first 12yr EC and I've had a strange experience with it; while drinking it I get what I would call a dry, "fuzzy" feeling in my mouth, tongue and lips. Seriously, FUZZY is the most accurate word. It is not a good thing and it can linger for quite some time. Does anyone know what the hell I'm talking about (I often don't )? I'd love to know if others have experienced this same thing, with EC or any other pours. Otherwise, the flavor is ok, not my fav. I know I've read here people saying the EC18 is very "woody" and that's the word that came to mind with my initial sip of this12y (of course "woody" only lasted till "fuzzy" spoke up), not overly so or bad, but you can taste wood for sure. thanks
I recently went against my word and picked up another bottle. LOVE IT. There absolutely was something funky with my last (2006) bottle; I swear on my mothers eye sight that it made my tongue feel "hairy". This stuff is wonderful, and a bargain at $25/6 a bottle.
