I enjoyed a little series of tastings I had at my favorite bar. This, Glenlivet Nadurra, and Rittenhouse Rye 100 BiB.
Nose: Starting off with a big whiff of raisins, quite interesting to start off but understandable since half of this bottling is aged in sherry casks, the other half in ex-bourbon barrels. Orange notes, caramel, and tobacco round this off. Interesting, seems a little unorderly.
Body: With swirling, I noticed thin relatively quick moving legs down the glass.
Taste: Toasted barley/grains, toffee, slightly noted red fruits, cocoa/dark chocolate notes seem to gather in. Interesting, order seems to be coming together.
Finish: Medium length with drying notes of continued cocoa/dark chocolate. Orange notes try to flicker through.
Overall: An interesting drop. Not really my kind of whisky (yet I do enjoy sherry influences just not so much in this particular fashion.
