I was curious to see what everyone thought. I will admit that I am new to this scene and that I do not have an experienced palate (despite my screen name
). This one has an immidiate blossom of complex
flavors in the front of the mouth and the tip of the tongue. I can't place them all. I taste dates, some sherry notes, and some peatiness (which
I have not yet tasted from a blended whiskey). Very Fruity and flavorful.
BUT, the finish is a very strong mocha/baker's chocolate/coffee flavor that turns bitter. The after-taste lasts long and I'm just not fond of the mocha/baker's chocolate/coffee flavor in my Scotch. Bottom line is it's not worth $70!!!
Maybe it'll grow on me with time....maybe.
