This is from memory. I haven't had this whisky in a number of years but I had this as part of a series, batches 6-18 and 21 all opened together. These bottles were all purchased for prices between $50 and $55 US. Therefore, the price receives high marks considering the overall quality.
Just after pouring into the glass: vanilla, caramel and an (unpleasant) smell of plastic or rubber. At aeration: brandy, cocoa, red fruit and a kernel odor. No alcohol sensation despite 60 ° but not very exuberant either.
Big, tangy sensation at the beginning of the mouth (you know how when you eat sweets with sugar on it). Then it's pretty hot on orange and cherry. With a little water, it looks a lot sweeter. No more heaviness.
Long on chocolate with a little bitterness, woody notes. it ends on nuts (nuts).
