Relatively reserved at the beginning, I would have expected a lot more from a three-year finish in PX Casks. It can still be... It remains the case that the nose is very little generous with aromas. Taking a sip has helped me so many times to push my nose... And indeed, that has actually helped, because now there are raisins, dried figs, blackberry jelly, strawberries, nougat and milk chocolate. The sip offered a glimpse of a creamy start and I think I can sense that creaminess on the nose.
Wow, the PX finish is quite noticeable on the tongue - so much so that I hardly have the feeling of having an Irish whisky in my glass, but rather a single malt from Speyside. Creamy mouthfeel. Blackberries, blueberries, black currants, plus lovage, rosemary, marjoram, tarragon and savory.
And if I take a nose again now, the initial reluctance has completely disappeared.
Creamy for a long time and provided with nice, not too exaggerated fruit notes. Raisins, dried figs, dark chocolate, espresso beans.
