  2. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Very nice, fruity, generous, powerful. Not aggressive but a little smooth, maybe.

    Enthusiasm 3/5

    Tasting note , by LMDWAppearance : burnished gold with copper tinges.Nose : full-bodied,
    ethereal. Particularly spicy and hot, the initial nose invites us to
    take a deep breath of fresh walnuts, nutmeg, delicious custard cream,
    and some candied ginger. The sherry influence is extremely original, not
    least in its energy. Sunny, it then becomes more heady (iris, lily) and
    even more spicy (clove, Espelette pepper). Throughout it shows
    impressive concentration and firmness.

    Palate : firm,
    taut. Very unlike the nose, the attack is generous and complex. From
    dried fruit (date, fig) to vanilla notes, it shows itself to be serene,
    with a fresh herbaceousness (lichen, lawn). Radiant, the mid-palate
    shows almost perfect balance. Beautiful bitter notes appear alongside
    perfect salty liquorice, whilst the acidity of its exotic fruit (passion
    fruit, pineapple) is tempered by the sweet creaminess of the abundant
    and delicious apricot and Mirabelle plum jam.
    Overall : long,
    rich. Malted barley reigns supreme. The finish is nourished by each
    ingredient from the nose and palate, making its characteristic spicy,
    herbaceous, floral and fruity notes even easier to appreciate. The
    retro-nasal olfaction offers notes of infused tea and tobacco leaves.
    Perfectly in unison, the empty glass is liquoricey, spicy (ginger) and
    mentholated.
