I've never tasted anything like this before, this is Rising Sun magic potion. The colour is a rich mahogany, like an Arabian Rabicano Racehorse. The nose is sublime, sweet chestnut, dark burnt cherries, almonds, marzipan, cork trees and dark rum raisins. I could spend all day nosing this and will try it with a cigar tomorrow (Probably a Partagas D4)
A teaspoon of water added: The mouth is a herbal blast of dried fruit, with flinty notes, teak-oak, dark cocoa, grass, cappuccino , minerals, green tea, nettles and paprika. The finish is bittersweet with waves of malt, mint, sherry-butter, liquorice, chocolate gateau and ancient oak smokiness coming through the long dry complex finish.
This is a Whisky to be tasted, then left for a while, a few days, weeks and months perhaps.
