  2. Alex did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    producer`s tasting notes:

    an incredibly dark whisky, very rich in texture.

    Initially, the nose is delicate - not what would you expect after seeing the colour Once a little air has interacted, strong sherry aromas emerge, bringing forth a waterfall of scents varying from lychees to papaya.

    As you would expect from a whisky of this caliber and age, the presence of the oak is strong. Adding a little water takes the edge away from the tannins, revealing flavours of brandy and armanac.

    A powerful whisky. Although less than 50% Vol., it tastes much stronger and this is evident on the finish. Bottled 2007.
