I have just increased my overall rating by four points after the second enjoyment of the whisky. Especially the nose was significantly fruity and balanced on the second try.
The nose is special. Very special.
Nice cheese, the "feet" we leave here once.
Rarely experienced such a special scent in a whisky.
Cheese biscuits, straw, dried grass maybe, but always some bittersweet in the background.
At the second enjoyment of the whisky, after the bottle was open one day, the scent changed very much to the positive. (from 81 to 86 points)
The cheesy is almost completely gone. Now fruity, lightly fried bacon in the background, vanilla.
But then surprisingly much better in the taste. (even the first time) He is creamier, butterier, many lighter fruits, vanilla.
Green mango and ginger.
Finish is medium and remains on the positive side. Warming. Typical Bourbon barrel finish without becoming too bitter.
