  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Sweet, cooked fruit, leather, warm bread, the nose evolves on prunes and intense sherry. On the palate, intense, very intense, with a little chocolate and a finish that evokes blackberry. A first addition of water brings the chocolate up to the nose. A second addition of water - yes, I am a rebel - gives the nose an interesting mix of fresh fruit and ripe fruit, with milk chocolate. The palate is now sweet, velvety, on sherry, not so spicy. Large and long finish.

    Enthusiasm 4/5
