    Solid and "beefy".

    Empty glass smells like malty rice crispie.
    • Nose
      First impression is deep note on old wood.

      Sherry and raisins.

      Caramel toffee.

      Musky peach skin and a little apple.
    • Taste
      Dark, robust, sweet and peppery.

      Creamy mouthfeel.

      Coffee notes and dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      Coffee remains, also the warmth of pepper.

      More fruit at the end, lasting quite a bit.

      Lightly drying.

    On this whisky I like everything, especially the multi-faceted seasoning. Overall, very intense and balanced, you get the desire for more.
