    sergeColour: gold. Nose: quite some body, starting on lots toasted notes together
    with some funny notes of mushroom soup, smoked ham, Maggi, soy sauce… Very
    meaty, really. Is that what Scottish oak smells like? Gets smokier and smokier,
    on burnt bread, oxtail soup… It then gets a little more ‘normal’, with quite
    some toffee and some nice flowery notes but with always some bold ‘organic’
    notes. Dried boletus? Even truffles… (gosh, now I’m getting hungry). After a
    good quarter of an hour: it’s switched to overripe apples with a bit of
    eucalyptus. Mouth: sweet and certainly simpler but still quite special, with a
    mix of wax and dried fruits, vanilla crème, smoked meat again, butter caramel,
    orange and olive oil, mead… Very ‘different’, definitely. Just a strange
    aftertaste after a few seconds, something like salted coffee but it’s almost
    subliminal, thank god. The finish is medium long and caramelly, on Chinese plum
    sauce. A very interesting whisky in any case, it seems that Scottish oaks have
    something particular to tell us!
