Dried fruit, spicy, oak
Raisins and other dried fruit, peppery sharpness, vanilla
Sharp, bitter, spicy, fruity and oaky
Ripe fruit, barley sugar, waxed wood. Everything is generous, a little too much, nag limit.
Beautiful density, generous and fragrant!
Very sparkling on a cocktail of atypical spices.
Nose & Finale 3/5
Whisky n ° 2118
- Exciting, layered ex-bourbon cask whisky.
Strong, spicy sweet, a lot of oak, beautiful undefined fruit and spice notes. Hints of smoke (though unsuccessful), or is the wood, cigar box? Very exciting, multi-layered nose.
Peppery in the mouth, slightly fruity, vanilla and not too tart oak notes. Sandalwood, nutmeg, pepper, a true spice cupboard.
Spices (nutmeg, pepper, cumin), in addition a tart oak, but also a minimal sweetness that balances that. Over time, the finish becomes fruity, tingling.
- A nicely layered, rich and not too complex whisky that has an oily mouthfeel. This whisky tastes so much older than it is, you would rather think that you are dealing with a 20 year old whisky rather than a young 4 to 5 year old whisky. Of all expressions I've tasted so far from John Paul, this is my favorite. Normally I would prefer a peated version but this whisky is so seductive and creamy that it won me over. Lovely candy from Goa!
