Strawberries, jam, heather, honey, some fresh mint leaves, vanilla cream, so so lovely. Definitely one to nose for hours. Oranges. White chocolate. Its hard to say, but I thought this was one of the best noses i've ever smelled, thus the 98. Might need to readjust as I try more whisky, but will keep for now!
creamy, spicy, nice teak oil, some of the minty-ness comes in. Unfortunately there is OBE but it's not the worse i've experienced and doesn't detract from the overall experience. The berries come in, some strawberry. Palate moves into some peat notes, very mild.
After a week open, OBE notes have faded significantly and more bitter espresso dark chocolate notes. A lot more medicinal and woody, which is fantastic
Woody, cinnamon, brine. Vanilla and honey on finish. Gets bitter, but then some sweet sherry undertones pop in. Pretty long finish, vanilla, mint
