No 7 in a H2H.
This is a nice whisky with good balance but £5000 a bottle you would need your head looking at if you think a whisky like this is worth that sort of money.
As a drinkers it is worth far far less than that perhaps £500
Anywhere between 90-93 points for me, if you do not take the price into account.
Rich and slightly smokey at first.
Very subtle and faint smoke with Uber Rich dark fruit like blackcurrant, blackberry, damson jam with some Rivera eye crackers note in the mix, sounds a bit strange but it works.
Going back to it there is some marmalade in the frame.
Very rich as you would expect, good balance with a nice mix of fruit, spice and sherry.
There is a nice breakfast marmalade note, mixing with red plum and a faint hint of black cherry.
Balance is very good, no wood to speak of which is a big plus.
Going back to the empty glass it smells even better.
remaining composed and spicy staying juicy until the end just loosing a little sweetness
