i opened this one with 2 friends.
nice long legs in the glas. that will promise an oily mouthfeel :)
first thing noticed was a very closed nose. only a very light and floral odor with hints of vanilla. never had a whisk(e)y so light like this one. i expected more from a high rated dram like this one.
let's snif again in a couple of minutes...
some fruit comes up. nice nose, but still light.
banana, vanilla, apple, pear and a touch of honey. there's also a little sourness in the back.
no sherry notes.
oh no, a little watery. what a shame.
starts a bit flat but the sweet flavours are coming and later a hint of pepper in the back.
vanilla, honey, sweet fruity flavours.
not real complex but ok. it's sweet and fruity, enough said.
aftertaste is fruity and sweet, medium in lenght.
A little sad this one is only 40%. taste is nice. a good whiskey for beginners.
a fine taste and good blending from the master distiller. but is lack of power will bring me the score of:
make this 43 or 46% and it has 90 potential for sure.
