- quite intense and bit intimidating by the alcohol, nonetheless still quite pleasant with quite some chocolate and candies.
Alright without water even if the alcohol is a little too strong.
Strong flowery/perfumy notes (in pretty good way) and nice honey notes. Green freshness and gentle oak. Cold coffee, cocoa and slightly musty.
Begins with a weird but interesting mix of tobbaco and horse. Not horse meat, but actually like the smell of living horses. Super ripe plums, red grapes and moderately annoying oak. Water ruins it.
Medium. Quite oaky and spicy.
Thanks for the sample
- A very lovely and intense whisky. The strange thing is that on the nose as well as on the palate is reveals some suggestions of sherry (the dried fruits and spices), but it’s a Bourbon Hogshead. This must have been a very active cast indeed. For some the wood (spices) might be a bit overpowering, not for me. I found this dram lovely and it offers quite some depth in the flavours. A wee drop of water brings out some freshness and fruitiness in this whisky.
All in all a very lovely and engaging whisky that can keep me occupied for quite some time.
A powerful, rich and intense whisky with aromas of oak, rosewood, cedar wood, licorice root, saw dust, sandalwood, a hint of joss sticks, black pepper, honey, a hint of sherry (but hey this is a bourbon cask?), muscovado sugar, subtle dried fruit (apricot, peach), fennel seeds, star anise, backed apple, hay, butter, pear, cinnamon, allspice, hint of coffee, old tea, old books, currants, bitter orange marmalade, forest berries, malt and more rich oak.
A powerful, rich and intense whisky with aromas of oak, licorice root, a hint of smoke (toasted oak), sandalwood, cedar wood, pepper, allspice, ginger, cinnamon, star anise, vanilla, burned caramel, backed pear, boiled sweets, honey, tannins, antique furnuture, dried fruits, golden sultanas, again a hint of sherry?, grapefruit, cherries, earthy tones and more powerful oak spices.
A long, warming and slightly drying finish with aromas of pepper, oak, rosewood, backing spices, apple, dark honey, subtle tannins and dark bitter chocolate.
