Nose: Mango, Nectarines, bananas, oranges or orange jam. A flow of exotic fruits. Hints of smoke lingering in the background. Dried fruits like figs. Hints of chocolate. Toffee and honey sweetness. My grandma’s old leather bag. Hints of newly waxed or polished wood. The casks are speaking loud here, but the spirit still has a voice in the chorus.
Taste: An explosion. Crisp notes of exotic fruits. Oranges and candied orange peels. Crème Brule vanilla and burnt sugar crust. Dark chocolate. Hint of licorice. Herbs I can’t define precisely. Very waxy and mouth coating. Tastes truly antiquated and that is meant highly positive.Finish: Mokka and chocolate. The Crème Brule notes stays on. Hints of cigars. Lingering oak.
I know it is subjective. But this one has about the crispiest flawless oak notes that I have ever encountered in a whisky.
Final coment: WOW!
