    Nose:
    The first steam from the glass has a nice, heavy and fruity sweetness. Baked plums with hot vanilla sauce and cinnamon, a mocha with a dash of rose water, dark chocolate, a tiny My Sulfur (a single New Year's bulb burned in front of the house). Semolina pudding, roasted apple, a handful of blackberries.
    With a little breathing and panning, light cereal notes emerge, more semolina pudding and slightly sour scents, redcurrants and gooseberries.

    Mouth:
    Vanilla and berry sweetness (blueberry and blackberry), cherry, plums and raisins, very nicely balanced with cloves and nutmeg, some cardamom. You can leave it in the mouth for a long time and discover more subtle aromas: again rose water, subtle orange, chocolate chips, a slightly dull spiciness (chaste tree?).

    Finish:
    Long, here the oak comes out stronger, accompanied by dark berries, espresso.

    A very nice malt, so a sherry whisky must taste for me to please me really well.
