  1. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    hmm difficult to judge
    the nose is OK and the finish is disappointing
    would be an easy drinking malt but it's too expensive for that
    • Nose
      Sherry becomes more, sweetness becomes more, oak, tart, light tobacco becomes stronger, brown / dark sugar, becomes flowery, light bananas, malt
      later: biscuits, freshly polished wood, raisins are getting stronger, cabbage, green leaves
    • Taste
      full and oily on the palate
      dark malt, dark caramel, minimal smoke?, slightly spicy, sherry becomes more, slightly musty, tobacco, becomes tart, oak comes
    • Finish
      medium long
      Oak, tart increases, dark berries, roasted aromas / espresso, something like asphalt

    Complex whisky which is still so easy to drink.
    • Nose
      Subtle but delicious sherry notes. Mulled wine, fruit cake, wet dates, lots of toffee and some chocolate notes in there. The sweetness begins to subside and a slightly bitter coffee note appears in the delicious form of a hot mocha. All this is backed up by a soft smokiness creeping in. Burnt birthday cake candles next to an unlighted cigar.
    • Taste
      Toffee, the sweetness is obvious on the tongue. Chocolate and coffee notes which come together nicely as the mocha. The waft of smoke finishes it off nicely, it’s a delicate touch which gives a pleasurable end to the experience. Lots of chocolate going on, chocolate cake and fudge brownie.
    • Finish
      Soft chocolatey finish which keeps going.
      Empty glass has aromas of freshly baked chocolate brownies

    Bottler's Tasting Notes:

    A festive feast - Christmas cake with brandy butter, cloves, sticky toffee pudding and rumtopf. A sweet café crème cigar and a morsel of dark geranium chocolate to finish.
