Rich, deep, complex. The nose reminds the one of Reference Series I but with more depth, probably an older whisky. Oaky profile, sap, saw dust. That balsamic resinous note. Orange blossom honey. Milk chocolate with raisins.
A silky feel but more of raw silk than smooth. Delicious crispiness. The palate delivers all the promises of the nose, culminating in a spicy outburst.
