Tasting Notes

Nose

Rich and heavily spiced. Aromatic, exotic, some varnish, mint, Puy lentil, sweet polished oak. Good intensity.

Palate

More interesting to start: apple purée, flowers then the oak grips. Sappy.

Finish

Spiced, slightly tannic.

Comment

This is more about oak than the whisky. Seems forced: trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.
