Distribution of ratings for this:
Color: pinkish hue.
Nose: Amarone finish seems evident.
Palate entry: Mildly spirity and the Amarone finish in the nose is clearly evident with a very light mouth feel.
Mid Palate: Gains a bit of spice and warmth in the mouth, the barest hint of wood makes an appearance and the Amarone finish gains a bit of strength and picks up a slight tang.
Finish: Ends with a burst of flavor, plums or dates, fading to a medium duration drying cereal.
This is from my third sampling of this bottle and definitely the most satisfying with much more character being apparent. The balance is very good with no taste element over taking another but rather flowing and merging nicely on their jouney through the palate.
While I picked up more scotch taste notes this time around they seem secondary to the taste notes of the Amarone finish leaving me a bit wanting as it strikes me more as an Amarone wine with a scotch finish than a scotch with an Amarone finish. A subperbly crafted spirit none the less.
