    • Nose
      Colour:
      Dirty gold

      Nose:
      The first thing I come across is dry smoke with a medicinal note. Ash and pomegranate behind. Some leather and wet bark. I'll let it stand a little ...
      With a little time in the glass, fermented berries and dried herbs arrive. I find the smell rather bitter now. Behind it a hidden, light sweetness and a little liquorice.
      With an even longer standing time, I find lovage and it has something of steppe. Dried earth and withered bushes.
    • Taste
      Surprisingly sweet start, with an ashy smoky note. Even a bit greasy. Dark chocolate and a hint of espresso. The herbs are fresher in taste. Plus a pleasant, light spice heat. Preserved, sweet berries. Even a bit liqueur-like. Has something like hazelnut liqueur. A little rust dust covers it like a thin coat.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. First dry wood. Then tart herbs. A honey-like, dark sweetness follows. Shrouded in ashy smoke.

    This dram has got everything one needs to appreciate a good whisky.

    Nose is opulent, rich. Peat is there, melted with fruits, sherry, caramel, honey, and spices, like cinamon and ginger.

    Mouth is full, dried fruits, Xmas cake, spices, medium sweetness, peat is little behind. The oakiness is perceptible in the spices but never becomes bitter or agressive. The whole thing is perfectly balanced.

    The aftertaste is long, peppery, spicy.
