Open, bright, with tones of raisins, prunes and dried fruits. A little peat, smoke in the background. Spice. Vanilla. A little floral aroma with notes of citrus. Disclosed by the waves, the development of aromas is very interesting.
Bright and open - Fruits: mango, orange, plum. Chocolate. Nougat. A bit of peat with oak. Oak is normal, does not stick out. Nuts and cardamom. A little cherry jam. Sweet enough taste. Developing and multifaceted.
Very long and warm. Lots of dried fruits and a bit of salt. There is smoke, but not much, in the background. Notes of blackcurrant and cherry. Gradually, sweetness decreases, warm tannins come. On the aftertaste, you can hang for a long time. Charming whisky.
Rich, tropical fruits, lemons, peaches, blood oranges, peat, smoke, bonfire, spices.
Very powerful and fruity, oily, lots of citrus fruits, cherries, smooth oak wood, little leathery, nice sweetness, seaweeds.
Long and lasting, sea notes on the background of x-mas pie.
