Tasting Notes by numen
color: burnt copper
nose: dried fruit, sherry, coconut, light sea salt and smoke, and apple. lots of dates, eucalyptus and mango, and a touch of clove (as it gets some time in the glass)
palate: slightly more sherry, and alcoholic verve. dried, waxy fruit follows with a mild, smoky finish.
This was the European bottling. As good as it is right from the bottle, the whisky improves significantly with 15-30 minutes of aeration. The first pour was rather closed, but this needs air and oxygen turns it into an exceptional dram.
