My bottle is aged in European sherry butts, and I can't say that I've tasted a better sherried whisky in my wannabe whisky-connoisseur career.
The nose is full of spice, butter, and dates. There is also oil infused with flowers, like some kind of ancient perfume.
It carouses over your tongue, demanding not to be swallowed until it has had its way with your mouth. The flavor is substantial and salty, and just as sweet as it is savory, like good Chinese food.
This is one of very few whiskies I can name that is as delightful on the nose as it is on the tongue.
There is a kind of "neatness" or "roundness" to it that is difficult to describe. Like a good work of sculpture, it doesn't have rough edges.
