    Blenders Glass.
    Sherry little things. According to the classics, everything is in place - wood, dried fruits, raisins, prunes, leather and tobacco ... but! there are pickles here! This is great!
    The taste is powerful, punchy. The alcohol is perfectly integrated. This is a wonderful specimen - very drinkable. The aftertaste is long-lasting, pleasant, warming.

    • Nose
      You have to let it air out a bit. We then discover beautiful notes of dried dates, figs to a lesser extent. A touch of old leather, very light. A hint of vanilla and chocolate. A nose to which we return often and at length.
    • Taste
      Haaaa he's got the rascal. I'm not just talking about the potency in alcohol but also how it invades the whole mouth. Ho, keep your scabrous comments to yourself. This is a serious blog whisky, okay? ???? A ginger beer side (the good one from Fentimans there) with this ginger candy side with a good dose of spices. Oranges with a touch of chocolate. Again that subtle touch of leather. Cool, really.
    • Finish
      Long, on woody notes and old leather. Dryness in the mouth. Pleasant heat in the throat.
