PS: upgraded to 90 - he just thrills me again and again!
A complex aroma in the nose. Dark fruits (plums, raisins, berries) are there, a pleasant sweetness is there and herbs are there. I perceive that first. Not always, but sometimes (on some days) I hear a light smoke. This light smoke gives the whiskey something greasy. He is very tender, even a steak on the same day is enough to get used to the nose so grilling aromas that I no longer notice it in the whiskey. Caramel and vanilla join, with some time the fruit flavors and sweetness become stronger.
Full and quite sparkling, but not unpleasant. From the fruits wins the plum on the palate, the smoke is palpable on the palate, as in the nose - prunes in bacon! This sweet-fruity-smoky experience is accompanied by a spicy herbal note, which is especially enhanced with the swallowing. With a little water, the whole becomes softer and juicier and less spicy.
Herbs and bacon plum remain less sweet on the finish. In the mouth, the taste remains quite long, in the throat it warms medium long.
