Now, with all the praising reviews this whisky has gotten, I definitely had high hopes for this one. I have to say it didn't immediately blow me away, but this dram is definitely impressive and something I'll gladly enjoy at any time. All tasting notes are with a splash of water.
The color is deep and dark amber, a beautiful color truly.
Nose: First thing you'll get is the sherry, but it's not sweet sherry but rather dry and even oaky. Faint notes of mint, nuts and dark chocolate. It's luxurious and simply a nose of a nice whisky.
Palate: Full and rich. Powerful sherry, nuts and malt. Some minty dark chocolate, maybe hints of apple. Very nice indeed.
Finish. Continuing from the palate with same malty and nutty notes. The alcohol definitely tingles the mouth. After it starts to dry you'll get the last slowly fading notes of chocolate and spices.
A must addition to any cabinet, a true masterpiece of a dram. These notes were written immediately after opening the bottle. I have a feeling this will still evolve and continue to impress.
