Her dress is a deep amber with a cinnamon touch.

There is lots of condensation on the inside of my glass. It seems to prove that this whiskey needs time to stretch.

I'm trying out also a new glass for the occasion: a whisky nosing spieglau, available at vinum design .

Winey nose and lots of spices. The leg is fine, thin, but takes its time to descend. I cannot wait to feel this body.

It is pretty rich and dry. An frank arrival, juicy and fruity. Stewed fruit were all the flavors are mixed together: ripe oranges, grapes, rosehips butter and figs. On toast, lightly buttered. White grape jelly, like chardonnay. The wood is not too present: probably 3rd refill.

The finish lasts: nutmeg and concord grape jelly. And it grows in intensity.

A breakfast malt?

Ah! Or for a 4 o'clock tea with crumpets. Yes, that's it. I can easily see myself at the Empress in Victoria with this dram in hand. With dark chocolate from Roger's , which is only two steps away. Yes, gov'nor: To Hell With tea and cucumber sandwiches: bring me some macallan and croissants, by Jove!

A good balance between the wood and the spirit, age and youthfulness.

pretty nice
