      The nose began with sponge cake, then quickly overwhelmed by dry golden raisin. With time, a little unripe banana appeared, backed by quite some nectar, and a little menthol. The nose eventually turned sugary. Surprisingly, at 62.1% this whisky is not pungent in the nose. Water didn't release more aroma.

      The mouthfeel is quite dry. Berry is the most identifiable flavour at bottle strength. There are also some dark chocolate. I'm afraid this whisky cannot take water. A drop or two are enough to weaken it to become bland.

      The finish is a little tart, which is quite interesting.

    Good eater, but a little too heavy and unbalanced.

      Sweet, caramel, slightly burned, strong oak, raisins and overall very smokey. With water, I hear a tendency to whisky.
    • Taste
      There is power behind it. Wow, it's pretty pure. The oak is there, the sweetness too. The taste is no longer so rummed. Sherry, a lot of oak, tart, tannic, pepper.
    • Finish
      The finish is determined by wood, pepper, and pepper.
