- Delicious mole. Honey notes are clearly broken from the nose, through taste and aftertaste. But the aftertaste itself is short. It would be longer - it would be 90.
- I opened this bottle at my latest whiskytasting, a room full of people tastzd something great that day. A very beautifull thick and oily whisky, great texture.
Nose: dried fruits, choclate, caramel, butter, black and white pepper, red fruits, oaky notes, very well balanced
Taste: dried red fruits with a peppery explosion, small hints of choclate and well balanced oaky notes, but not overpowering the whisky at all. The taste in the mouth is very thick and oily, one of the best textures of a whisky i have ever had so far.
Finish: the lesser of the whisky, but still pretty good and long, wood and dried fruits

It arrives quite
powerfully. Punchy and spicy. White pepper precedes citrus
fruit. Besides some lime and oranges, I also get some slightly sour mandarin
and grapefruit. The oak rears its head as well, but it never turns oaky.
Diluted, I get a fresh, sweet spring dram in my glass. The citrus is softened
up by hints of green banana. The spices start to whisper. The oak silently
The finish is fairly
long with sweetness and some drying oak at the death.
