  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I thought it was a blend. Enthusiasm 3/5 Whisky n ° 1770
    • Nose
      Sweet woody, it promises to be creamy. Wood glue ? No ... Vanilla and cloves. Tasty, but a pity it loses in volume.
    • Taste
      Very mellow! Rich. A little too small, but never watery. It lacks a little impact, and the aromas have a tendency to mix and muddle (another hypothesis: too complex for my palate)
    • Finish
      Very slightly spicy and a little short.

    tasted tonight a little kills this bottle, it may be a few% more to fully express itself but we are on an excellent sherry with a very nice nose on the precious varnished wood and candied fruit like those in the English cake with cherries and raisins, we could smell it for hours so it's good.
    in the mouth as I said it lacks can be a little more punch, we go on spices, cinnamon without hesitation and wood as said by my colleague "it feels like drinking directly to the barrel" it's warm, we're on almost the same continuity as the nose.
    the finish is relatively long, always drying this woody side, slightly vinous.
    On the other hand I did not detect any smoke or peat as in the notes that I could read, maybe it is necessary to let it still to aerate.
