Nose

Needed a little time to open up, but now it's lovely. Sweet honey and fudge with lemon grass and a whiff of apricots, accompanied by just a tiny bit of smoke. Finally some soy.

Taste

We've got honey, butterscotch and oranges, followed by a good amount of licorice and cinnamon. There's a whiff of wood smoke, and trace amounts of peat. Finally just a slight metallic/sour quality, which I attribute to some bottle aging gone wrong. Nothing too bad though.

Finish

Honey and spices, a bit of smoke. Medium in length.

Comments

Very, very decent stuff, with just a few off-notes on the palate. Still, this can easily compete with many modern single malts.
