- He does not really have much in common with scotch. And he is the hammer in his own way. Incredibly complex nose, a stormy, fiery on the palate. Delicious.
The stuff is just terrific.
It starts with plum, followed by Mon Cherry cherry. Cafe-au-lait, gum, chocolate. Later, mellow wood, vanilla. Short flowery, then cigarette ash. The alcohol stings in the nose.
Very sweet starting, plum, gum, coal fire. The alcohol is burning.
Very long finish with spicy bitterness, leather and tobacco.
- Quite unusual and not comparable with any Scotch Whisky. Very good but not for the fainthearted.
Ooops, needs some time and air - quite some varnish at the beginning. After a few minutes the varnish has disappeared and it becomes rather closed with weak aromas of sherry and tobacco. Dried exotic fruits and sweet grassy notes. Pleasant.
Powerful and rich - an explosion of syrupy sweetness, tons of toffee and chestnuts. Lovely.
Long dry and spicy finish with dark wood. Very satisfying.
