While there, it is a special experience to taste and try to define this whisky, so it is special. I had never tasted anything like it. So, I do not know if I like it or not, I feel myself still. Impossible to rate it, suddenly! So a first: no odds! Rely on my crude description, for a faith. . But one thing is certain in relation to my personal expectations: I would have preferred more presence, because it is still (too) wise and erased.
Fine, melted, airy, and ... distant. In view of the color, I expected a clear impression of the Sherry, it is not. What strikes me especially at the level of this nose are the spices (clove, nutmeg) and aromatic herbs (coriander, fennel, sorrel) that compose it. It goes out of habits, even (or especially?) For a whisky of this age.
The first contact is light, even aqueous limit; despite the fact that it is a barrel brut. Few taste sensations at first. From the second sip, the flavors arrive timidly: some sweet spices, exotic wood, and even those particular flavors that I interpret as being aromatic herbs.
Short. The wood is more present, accompanied by a plant freshness close to mint without really being.
