This nose is really exciting: after a start of vanilla / alcohol not tip top, we have fruit galore: wild fruits jam and jelly, plums, all with a hint of acidity while remaining quite sweet. Toffee late, more and more melted, some cereal notes. On the palate, malt and toffee, it is also sweet, but the alcohol is a little annoying. Sweet spices at the end of the mouth that extend into the finish, which lacks overall balance. With a little water, we find the intensity of the fruits that had subsided to the nose, they are also more demonstrative in the mouth. In the finale, the spices are more spicy. Always this imbalance that prevents a little to enjoy the moment to 100%. This whisky has many qualities, but also unfortunately some shadows on the board.
