Nose: the first aroma that strikes me is dark chocolate. Really dark chocolate this time. There is some oak, but less than expected (this is good I suppose). More heathery and floral aromas in combination with the chocolate. Besides the chocolate there are fruity aromas, dried fruits. Plums and cranberries. Sultanas. Honey as well.

Taste: well-balanced, and very complex. Subtle smoke is the first impact. Followed by a good amount of the oak wood, lovely sherry influences. This whisky reminds me of the Glendronach Revival in some way.

Finish: a very, very, very long and satisfying finish! More chocolate and honey, some almonds as well. It just keeps on going…

Comments: I could do this with a 3cl sample, for my birthday ;-) But wow! this is very expensive. But than again, what a superb finish!
