Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Un premier nez assez fermé. On sent qu'il y a beaucoup de choses, mais tout est tellement fondu, que rien ne semble évident. La texture paraît crémeuse, et finalement quelques notes sortent du lot : de l'orange, du poivre et de la cannelle. On est ici sur un profil plutôt épicé, même si quelques effluves de menthe viennent rafraichir l'ensemble. D'une manière générale, ce nez est un peu trop fondu à mon goût.

Taste

Contrairement à ce que laissait présager le nez, la texture est très légère. C'est assez surprenant. C'est toujours très épicé, avec de la cannelle et de l'orange. On perçoit également des notes lactées et de café. Un whisky idéal les périodes hivernale, en alternance avec le vin chaud ! On s'imagine au coin du feu, la neige recouvrant le bas de la fenêtre !

Finish

Pas très longue, un peu amère et toujours avec ce trio gagnant : café au lait, cannelle, orange.

Comments

Un dram qui nous renvoie aux souvenirs de Noël. Un bon petit moment passé à le déguster, mais quelques défauts tout de même : des arômes un peu trop discrets, des épices un peu trop présentes, une amertume qui dérange un peu.
