This whiskey, even from a plastic tumbler I am using travelling in an RV smells like there is a lot of sweetness, caramel, maple, coming up, with the hint of washer fluid telling me it’s high in alcohol, which my bottle agrees with. Tasting it is the exponent of what I just smelled. It’s oaky, but still recognizable as non-scotch. But maybe only because I already knew so. If you want to taste sherry casks, even when knowing better, they’re there. The taste has its trouble fading. It stays for more than average releasing more pepper as the time passes. This is a 91,5 at least on my scale of happiness, with the 92 on taste and palate. Wow.
