    nose

    without water

    Very waxy looks very old and set. Old books but beef bouillon. It is constantly changing. Very ripe bananas come to mind, leather. Ripe apples, cinnamon. Apple strudel with vanilla sauce. This waxiness reminds me a lot of Clynelish.

    Mouth / finish

    The whisky lies oily over the whole tongue and then with its 55% presses quite nicely and goes down the throat warming. Very spicy in taste. The waxiness comes later in the finish.
    With a little water it becomes rounder without losing its intensity. Beef bouillon, apple, cinnamon, vanilla sauce then a distinct spicy oak, darker wood aromas, but rubber accompanied by vanilla aromas. Later the association with leather comes back and the waxiness is much more subtle than I would have thought after the nose. The finish is long. I like it incredibly well.
