Aroma: concentrated, sweet. Dark berries, dried fruits, spices.
We stood and breathed .... Apricot, leather goods, confectionery, dried cherries, slightly rotten fruits, shades of mint.
Taste: rich, dense, enveloping, sweet. Lots of dark berries, peaches, apricot pits, latte, cappuccino, creamy notes, chocolate shades, a little ginger, wood.
Finish: long, sweet - salty, slightly pungent. Dried fruits, coffee notes, milk chocolate, pepper, barrel.
Conclusion: A well-formed and mature whisky that has a good palette of flavors and aromas. The barrel worked wonderfully.
With such a whisky you want to sit and chat. This whisky is thirsty, not finished.
