    TASTING NOTES
    A complex nose with citrus, baked apples and hints of almonds give way to a taste that is fruity with some lovely oak overtones; all ending with a rich, oily and slightly dry finish.

  2. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    cheeky, honeyed whisky, with an interesting aroma, but rather mediocre taste and aftertaste. A casual option, without much ambition.
    • Nose
      Malty, with a distinct hint of honey, with spices and dry wood. After some time, shades of belly and old skin appeared.
    • Taste
      Dry, slightly harsh - honey comb, gray bread, paper, tannins.
    • Finish
      Medium duration, slightly alcoholic, echoing the palate, with an obvious honey flavor.

    PS: it seems somethings remove the final "a" in the website link or the word d r a m a, so I used a bit.ly alternative.

    Comments:
    This expression for me requires a bit more work to peel the layers than with the Original, but there are definitely more layers. While it’s bottled at 46% abv, I didn’t feel at first a very different mouthfeel than the Original, though sip after sip I found it to have more texture. You can taste the age difference between the two, but it’s not immediately obvious, at least for me. While writing my palate tasting notes, they were at first word for word the ones from the Original, but then I didn’t stop as I was getting deeper and deeper in the layers while there was nothing else for the Original. It’s good but I expected a bit more anyway.

      Citrus is quite present upfront. This is pricklier than the Original. Hints of wood polish, vanilla, some orange juice and a slice or two of ginger next of sweet soy sauce mixed with wasabi. Maybe some kind of meaty notes too.
    • Taste
      85 85
      The arrival is very sweet and a bit thin once again. After a moment, some spices (a touch of ginger) come along, then almonds, citrus, caramel, milk chocolate and coffee. I retrieve the kind of chalky texture from the Original but it is less obvious. A second sip brings a bit of oranges, cigar smoke and some cracked black pepper.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Citrus, orange, pepper and almonds with a warmth in the throat and on the tip of the tongue, with a good length.
