He did not like it so much. The nose very closed, in the mouth too alcoholic. But the whisky opens up with water and becomes a nice young sherry barrel whisky.
surprisingly shy in the beginning, then sweet sherry, liquorice, dark fruits, spices, quite alcoholic, but still not very responsive with the flavors. With water, the nose opens up and becomes nice and round.
strong, warm, a lot of sherry, some oak, some licorice, then a bit tart. Very warm. With water, the oak comes through stronger, even a little salt. The whisky becomes very intense.
still pretty warm, then comes beautiful oak, some gingerbread spice, almost a little Christmassy. More sweet than dry.
