This will be my first review on connosr (or at all really). I'm a chef, so I think about food pairings when I have scotch. This is a very special bottle for me, as I got it for the first Father's day that I was a subject of. So without further adieu:
Pre dilution Nose: Peach, Plum, Citrus, Jelly beans, cotton candy, white grapes, oak, sauternes (obviously), poached pear, medium vanilla hints
Flavor: medium body, light tartness, disintegrates on your tongue in a fruity, slightly nutty flavor, a slight tang nestles in between taste buds. Gentle bitter finish.
Diluted: Nose: candied orange rind, peaches Flavor: loses some tartness, gains a little sweetness. Flavor doesn't seem to be as complex when diluted. Wood and apple on the finish. As for the texture on the tongue, the tang is muted
Food pairing ideas: App: Tuna skewer, candied grapefruit, watercress (Intersested to see what a peppery green would do to balance the sweetness of this dram)
Main: Sauternes poached Foie gras.
Dessert: Meyer lemon semifreddo
