PalateThe first sip is really smooth and as an experienced taster once told
me, it takes many sips to adequately judge a whisky so let’s continue
on. Big syrupy sherry flavors that remind me of cola without the
carbonation. I may be picking up on hints of canned cherries but that
could be a reach. Not much complexity but still tasty.
With WaterThe nose is more prevalent and has a bigger punch. However, the
palate gains a bit of spiciness and finish is more subdued. Definitely
better without water.
FinishVery pleasant and consistent with the nose and palate. Again, syrupy
cola that stays on the top of the tongue. I like how it doesn’t get
bitter at the end like some whiskies do.
What I thinkToo bad there is not much complexity here. If there were, this whisky
would intrigue me a bit more. Having said that, the price is great for
what you get. Worth every penny.
