    Freshly sliced ​​very spicy herbs and typical fragrance of dried fruits (peaches and apricots). In the mouth, a wonderful sweet world vanilla, caramel and fruity sweet and spicy wood notes unfolds. Thankfully missing the solvent notes like a bourbon. In the really long finish a peppery sharpness and resinous wood are present in addition to the fruity sweetness. But really, this single grain suggests some (or better many) single malt.

    Fascinating. I like the nose for sure. The rest of it, ... well it's a rollercoaster, but they're always fun aren't they?
    • Nose
      The colour suggests some sherry cask influence and the nose does nothing
      to change your mind. It's hard to break through the very sweet/citrus
      presentation, but it clarifies as oranges and Love Heart sweeties
    • Taste
      It really has a good rummage around in your taste buds this one. Its
      sweet, sour, bitter and maybe even slightly salty as well. Its not at
      all graceful but it really gets your attention. I like it just for its
      audacity.
    • Finish
      Ha, the finish does it again. It starts sweet then turns sour (not too
      sour though), then bitter (maybe a bit too bitter and ultimately dries
      leaving a sense, if not a real taste of salt. It takes quite a while to
      settle.

    This one has characteristics of an American Rye.  Very nice.
    • Nose
      Soft and sweet.  Ripe bananas.  Pina Colada.  Werther's Originals. Vanilla fudge.  Almond toffee.  Fresh roasted chestnuts (in Manhattan).  Bourbon.
    • Taste
      Light and sweet.  Cereal.  Spicy, but not hot (cinnamon, black pepper, cloves).  Vanilla fudge, again.  Licorice root.  Spice cake.
    • Finish
      Sweet and medium in length.  More licorice, then some ginger (?). Peppercorns.  Cinnamon, then hints of oak.

    The nose is great, lovely sweet and you can smell the strength - 45.2% - is perfect for this whisky; full with apricots, honey and delicious lime! Wow, what a fantastic whisky this is!!! I wish I could find a box of this amazing whisky
