    First time trying Omar's cask strength bottling, not sure what to expect given the poor impression I have possessed from its core range bottling... but here goes.

    Color: Dark maple syrup, i guess its quite normal for a 5 years old whisky in Taiwan?

    Nose: Strong sweetness presents itself, honey and syrup, though its unusually light and not gooey at all due to the underlying fruitiness. Peach, apple, apricot can all be found in the background lingering, giving an unusual experience to the usual "heavy sherry" whisky. Lovely.

    Palate: The typical sherry flavors are more apparent on the palate, dried spices (cinnamon) and syrup dominates the palate, with apple and apricot dancing in the background, makes up quite an interesting experience.

    Finish: The fully body dram leaves a long and warm finish that is extraordinary sweet.

    Some have said that the new make of the Nantou distillery possess such tropical fruitiness and i think it really shows in these bottling that are young. Though from the color the sherry influence is rather high on the dram, but the innate characteristics of the new make cannot be mask, a very interesting experience indeed.
