Such big names that I poured this sample with caution, considering that such powerful each individually, they are like a football team, which scored the best scorers, may not give such a result as each player individually gives. Thank God, my fears were unfounded, and Drum was wonderful. This combination of smoke, powerful sherry whisky, high degree, created a very voluminous drink. At the same time, there was no dominant edge that would pull the taste away, and suppress other taste sensations. It was a reasonable ballance of facets - a good geometric shape.
The smoke was warm, not aggressive, making it look like plums, grapes, and apricots were smoking on it. There was a feeling of a twig, or an apricot bone. Red apple peel and cigar room.
The taste is the same smoky and sweet, with a sharp, oaky taste, with the bitterness of tobacco leaf and dark chocolate without sugar. So the drink ended.
In the aftertaste, I also exhaled smoke, sweet dark dried fruits, and ended up with a slightly tart feeling.
