NOSE: delicious nose with fruit, honey, vanilla cream in a well-balanced marriage with sherry-inspired aromas. It does deliver that "doublewood" it promises on the nose. Other notes: overripe banana; a touch of green apple (Granny Smith?; toffee;
TASTE: slightly oily, vanilla, very smooth, not a lot going on; hint of fresh pastry;
FINISH: swift, and sadly so. Nothing to write home about.
OVERALL IMPRESSION: this whisky smells amazingly delicious! When you smell it - your mouth waters. However, this lovely nose really does this whisky a disservice by raising up one's expectations of taste. The taste itself is lacking in flavor big time. It is nice, but it is definitely a put-down after such a promising, interesting nose. The finish is nowhere to be found which only added to my disappointment with the taste. In summary, Doublewood is a downward spiral experience.
