I'll add more details to the review as I am sure this whisky will reveal some other characteristics over time. But for now..I've tasted it 3 times and here's what I think of it:
SMELL: the initial smell is thick, dense caramel, then come hints of toffee, coffee and menthol. With a drop of water it mellows down and the caramel gets even more prominent. There are also aromas of milk chocolate, latte, Crème brûlée, orange zest, rich strawberry marmalade!
TASTE: starts off dry, exploding into nutty cake-like sherry sweetness which eventually subsides leaving behind some sour cherry notes, cola;
FINISH: long and comforting; there is something in there that reminds me of Lindt dark chocolate with chili;
CONCLUSION: WoW!! Maybe I am not spoiled enough to judge, but for me - this whisky is THE BEST sherried whisky I have tried so far. Taking into consideration that it is not chill-filtered and natural color ...WOW! Unique!
