Words Of Whisky:
Fruity (forest fruits, blackcurrants, dark cherries), with a hint of espresso and varnish, as well as leather. There's walnut skins and orange marmalade too, with just a hint of rose water and elderflower, and even a touch of licorice, mushrooms and soy.
Tannins, somewhat astringent. Lovely exotic fruits with proper orange zest and pink grapefruit to start, but also leather, tobacco leaves and a spicy jab. Finally a hit of menthol as well, but the oak spices are dominant.
Some soft dried red fruits and lingering spices. Slightly dry.
