- The nose is inexpressive, light veil of smoke from a wood fire, a little ether. The mouth is the same, with a lack of expressiveness patent. Sweet attack, medium low aromatic, there is a little smoke (and maybe a little honey). Peanut in the short final. Nothing unpleasant, no bitterness, no astringency ... but nothing pleasant either. Probably the most absent whiskey I've had to taste, it looks like it has all bet on its packaging. He goes after a starter who was appreciated so the problem does not come from me a priori, is it from the sample? (from whiskysite.nl) 76 as is.
- Nose: Quite spicy On the nose. Bit of wax, vanilla,spices (cloves and dried ginger). Malty with some ripe orange and dough.
Palate : Sweeter than the nose suggested with sweet lush sultanas , honey , wee smoke and leather. Transforming into dark chocolate with orange.
Finish: oak,nuts covered with dark chocolate. Dry.
this was a much heavier whisky than i thought, but it’s very well made. If you’re in for a lighter blend, or a summery whisky, look elsewhere, as this is a complex, and intense flavoured.
