    Do not ask me how this tastes with water, for a had
    some trouble with the palate, needing three to four sips to truly appreciate
    this dram. And I tasted it from a sample. Yep, you have guessed it. After five
    sips, the glass was empty.
    • Nose
      On the nose, one scent jumps out immediately:
      butterscotch. Candy made of candied sugar and loads of butter. Some candle
      wax too. Cloves and nutmeg precede rum raisins. Reminds me a bit of rum,
      actually. Espresso, whipped cream on top. This is a very enticing nose.
    • Taste
      On the palate it is equally creamy, but with a sour
      touch. Hints
      of wine. Pity. But it remains sweet enough
      (again candied sugar, but hardly any fruit) to be called good. Midpalate,
      the coffee returns. Some nuts as well. Roasted, mind you. Yes, it is becoming
      much better now. Even some chocolate. After the
      second and third sip it becomes really good.
    • Finish
      The finish is spicy and shows some toasted oak. The
      mouth is left dry.
