character. Good balance of sherry derived flavours and oak spice. Lacks
some complexity, but a promising spirit though. Best to enjoy neat.
I thank Kirsch Whisky Import for the sample!
Wood smoke mixed with coal dust and a hint of peat on the nose. Fresh
with a light cereal note and a touch of sweet sherry coming in over the
Rich with sweet notes of dates and raisins, followed by a bold and
intense warming spiciness of peat, tender smoke, oak and nutmeg. Sweet
barley sugar and subtle smoked ham nicely intermingle with spicy acacia
honey and tender cinnamon towards the finish.
The finish is medium to long and warm with a dry sweetness, burnt caramel and a touch of peat smoke on the tail.
WITH WATER: Dry, smoky and slightly medical on the nose with a splash
of water. Oak and ginger in the back. Less sweet on the palate with more
phenolic character, cloves and oak spice. Dry and slightly warming. The
finish is short to medium long, less sweet, dry, and somewhat warming
with spicy notes of acacia honey, peat, and a hint of smoke.
