This whisky is really awesome, not for beginners and certainly not a starter whisky, polarizing, probably love it or hate it, exciting, definitely sets itself apart from the mass of other whisky, even optically because of the dark color. For me a very harmonious top whisky.
First a clear glue note, as you know from some Bourbons. After this is gone, sweet pickled fruits. A great fragrance that literally stands in the room. In a blind tasting I would have typed directly on a bourbon.
First sip, again very similar to Bourbon. I was totally surprised, because I did not expect it. From the second / third sip, almost after the palate has been made supple, this kavalan plays out his full class. Now comes the port board, massive, full-bodied, red fruits, supple, fine, noble, despite the high vol.% Neither sprightly nor unpleasantly hot. Second glass poured, oh man .... that is getting better. Addictive ...
Grandiose finish. Powerful and substantial. You can tell, here you have it with a really fat caliber, that you do not have every day in the glass. Class.
