Words Of Whisky
Not quite as brilliant as the 200+ scores on Whiskybase indicate, if you ask me. I wonder if it really is better than the sum of its parts. Nevertheless a very good whisky.
Inviting with soft sherry notes and hints of cigar tobacco, as well as milk chocolate. A whisper of resin too, as well as menthol, baked mushrooms and soy sauce. Finally a whiff of red fruits like raspberries, but mainly freshly cut strawberries. Fresh, yet intense and dark, but well-balanced.
A tad more phenolic than I'd expected based on the nose, although far from a peat bomb. Whiffs of menthol, a whisper of copper coins, some dark chocolate as well, accompanied by a good amount of fruity sweetness. A hint of bitter oak.
Medium in length, with menthol and cocoa powder.
