    The year starts right away with a bad whisky. Let's see if it will be the worst dram for me in 2022.

    The smoke is hardly noticeable in the aroma, but it is in the taste.

  8. alcohol_Shrimp scored this whisky 82 points Newbie

    light and sweet

    It has a subtle yet light sweet scent. Overall, I think whisky is light. Aromas of sherry and dried fruit are felt, and the intuitive scent of cigar leaves is distinctly felt.

    As I put it in my mouth, I can feel the light and creamy body as I thought. But the taste is not light. You can feel the sweetness and fruit of sherry and the scent of cigar.

    The finish is subtle sweetness and a lingering aftertaste of creamy sherry. The afterglow is still fairly thin. Delicious cigar malt whisky. On this day, I paired my cigar with Davidoff Specialty, and the character of the cigar was so strong that this whisky felt like a slight push from the bottom. Rather, it would have shown greater synergy if it was matched with other similar cigars.

    Interesting whisky! With loads of spices, like juniper, anise, liquorice root, smoke, tobacco and cigar. But not too much smoke and cigar. Medium intensity on the palate, with strong and powerful alcohol as well as a long finish.

    Buttery, strong malt, apple juice, sherry, butterscotch, dried fruit, rhubarb, dried apricots, caramel. Creamy, sweet, medium intensity, moderate body.
