...what is a fine and flawless whisky but unfortunately I do not like its heavy herbal-driven profile. Nonetheless I can imagine that connoisseurs with a herbal preference will enjoy this very much!
The nose offers a modern herbal-driven sherry profile that is very clean but not sherry sweet at all. Water opens it up and releases more sherry-induced fruits, nuts and raisins.
The palate is rather closed when neat on mainly herbal sherry notes. Water releases even more herbs, some dark chocolate, tobacco and spices.
The initial mouthfeel is warming, a little hot due to the high abv and not very much coating but there are no distracting moments either. The finish is rather short with more tobacco notes and a drying end (cold ashes).
