Tasting Notes by Narcism
This is a by-the-fireplace-in-a-tweed-jacket scotch.
On the nose, the strongest notes were those of banana. Medium notes included vanilla and caramel; and light notes: nut and clove. Very soft and not aggressive.
The high notes started with some chutzpah. Strong and harsh. Oak-y, fruity (pear?), and lightly peaty. There was additional complexity beyond what I could taste. I feel like I would need to have more to have a full grasp of what's happening.
For the low notes, there was a medium tail. Nut, spice, oat and clove notes smoothly finished off this scotch.
