    Sample testing.

    Nose seem a bit mute. Spices and a touch of tangerines not much more. After some times, it fortunately intensifies, with the addition of rounder notes (butterscotch), oak and a light (and curious) herbaceous side ? After even longer it could be reminiscent of a light Springbank, saltiness and peat appart.

    In mouth a bit on the dry side, astringent touch and acidic fruits. Salted caramel too, not round enough to please me, but it has a real presence.

    Medium finish, on the same notes with the addition of some concentrated milk.

    Time really helped on the nose. I had a nicer experience with the 12 y-o which felt less on the bitter side of sherry I'm not fond of. 6/10

    Edit : two and half week, and half the sample later. Nose has open up, I wouldn't say herbaceous but flowery (lilacs). Really nice nose. In mouth it still feels too light and a bit too pungent for me.

    N- Beeri-sh and fresh sweet wash. Well rested marzipan that drifting with nuttiness and subtle caramel. Cafe mocha, milky, fig and fudge. Floral underneath with distant feint notes of tobacco and yeasty. Angostura soaked sugar cubes for the old fashioned with mineral and rubber in the mix. (89/22)

    P- Gentle grips with fine leather and boiled herbs, puffy spices developed thru the middle with bitter chocolate, custard sugar and layer of earthiness. (87/21)

    F- Medium, grassy sweet and smooth as silk. Pleasant sweet herbs and minty that are quite highland. Comforting with good lengthy weight that get minty better as it breath. (87/21)

    Like this. Tasty too. There was no more Arran Amarone. "You must do this!" She said. Tasty too. I don't know what I taste, but it is a lot. No headache.
