from a purchased sample

Nose: Vanilla - extract and frosting. Smoky with a pinch of salt and seawater dampened pebbles in honey. Melon, lemon, and some green apple. Very slight porridgy. A few floral notes. Maybe even some putty. Toast. Grassy and fermented sugar. Then there's this odd metalic note. Hmm.

Palate: Lively, with honey, sandalwood, a few whiffs of smoke, more putty, and zesty on bitter lemon rind. Stale ginger root and soft pepper. Sweet and a little drying.

Finish: Smoke (light), honey, wood, lemon zest. It's really very good. Accessible and straightforward. Dull wet wood and a delicate wax coat. Surprisingly supple and substantial. No rough edges here, and some pleasant flavoring. I like this

i like this bottle. even the 8 year is not bad. However, this said, the Longrow Gajo Barolo is fantastic. snag one if you can find it! they are getting more and more rare. . . .
