    Well, this is a bit of a strange one, however I must admit i am not that familiar with Marsala finished whisky. The nose was initially much to my liking, but it became too much and av bit strange quite fast.

      More spicy, some oriental spices with red fruitness.

    Honestly, too bad!
    I would have expected much more sweetness from a Marsala cask. From about 10 years honestly also more mature ...
    There I had significantly younger whiskys (including with country of origin other than Scotland) in the glass, which could impress much more.
    I am quite disappointed in the stuff and can not understand the whole over 80 reviews .... But tastes are luckily different.
    • Nose
      Slight wine notes, a little bit sourish, young (unfortunately this is already in the nose ...)
      Actually, not that you have to have really bad expectations, because something can be put into perspective ...
    • Taste
      ... but it does not relativize. Sweet, some wine, a few fresh grapes, but then quickly superimposed by metallic youth.
      Sorry, but mature, balanced or well-integrated alcohol ... Nonsmoking.
    • Finish
      Finish on the palate, in the throat ... no idea, I'm still looking for ... On the tongue, the whole thing quickly becomes creepy with strange bitter substances (maybe also from the citrus fruit area ...) But otherwise...
      No, do not come much.
