A difficult whisky and nothing for beginners. Definitely needs air and time to develop. Unfortunately it has a bitter aftertaste.
Starts sweet on notes of peat and alcohol with weaker notes of dried fruits. Dried apples and pears, hints of cinnamon and meaty aromas. Some caramel as well.
Needs time and improves more and more. Changes a lot.
A powerful hot and spicy alcoholic explosion, warming from deep inside. Slightly astringent and dry, surprisingly peaty. Caramel, old wood and hints of sherry in the background. Changes a lot and gets better and better, same as with the nose. Not an easy dram to savour, but the taste is quite nice.
Long, softens at the end and becomes smooth. Has a bitter aftertaste, which lasts very long.
