Sweet malt, buttery, creamy, vanilla
Creamy, sweet malt, chocolate, coffee
Medium long, spicy, dry
- 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.
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.
On the palate it is equally creamy, but with a sour
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.
The finish is spicy and shows some toasted oak. The
mouth is left dry.
- Same cask but different ABV -
