Words of whisky:
Nose: Hi Pedro (Ximénez)! Sour, copper coins, but strangely enough also lemon yoghurt. Make no mistake though, this is an over the top bomb. Hints of rum raisins, balsamic vinegar, crème de cassis and nougat. With some sulphur as well, if that’s your thing. If you’re into PX, you should probably buy this.

Finish: Lingering notes of brown sugar and dates. Pretty long.
So hard to score, as I find it has some undesirable elements (because of the likely Pedro Ximénez maturation). It has plenty of redeeming qualities though, and those disagreeable factors fade into the background pretty quickl
