- An excellent cask, an excellent whisky, very nicely balanced. Enjoyable with or without water.
Red fruits, like strawberries and raspberries. Then dried fruits as well: Sultanas, raisins, plums, dates too. Some honey in the background. There’s a lingering sour note from balsamico. Quite lovely. Later also a hint of milk chocolate. Water reveals lemon, and some oranges. It is somewhat fresher now. Blueberries too.
Chocolate, sultanas, raisins, balsamico again. Also some nice winter spices, such as cinnamon, and ginger. It is a bit peppery as well. A light coffee note in the end. With water: More chocolate-like (mostly milk chocolate), and the spices dissapear to the background. Creamier. A hint of oranges and citrus here as well. Some honey too. And Rooibos tea.
The finish is quite long, with all the spices as mentioned above, and the coffee note is here as well. Dark chocolate. Water adds mocha.
