I’m definitely picking up on the popcorn… it’s almost medicinal on the nose.
The palate is an intense Christmas cake that dissolves into a peach yogurt.
The finish is creamy popcorn flan 🍮
There’s so much here. I’m not going to be able to explore it all with 3cl.
Adding far too much water…
The nose becomes more medicinal and floral. The palate is sweet apple and pear pudding with a flaky biscuit crust.
The finish is smoother and vanilla comes out to play in the grass and flowers.
I love the Glenfarclas 15, but this is a different thing entirely. It reminds me of a “Bunnahabhain Stiùireadair”.
I transferred some full strength whiskey to a tumbler glass instead of the Glencairn.
Roasted nuts on the nose. The palate remains warmed fruits, cream. The finish is intense and long, lingering pepper, fruit, and milk chocolate.
This is a big whiskey, one which is difficult to taste around. But its depth allows a lot of space to play.
Noses of spice and everything nice
Med dark color
Neat: sharp spice on first tasting with a nice warming of the mouth during after taste.
On the Rocks: opens up nicely, reducing the sharpness adding a lovely after taste without "watering down"
Not peaty and good example of a highland scotch.
Nose- a berry basket! There is also a hint of esther-like rum barrel that gives it a bit of funk. Very nice nose.
Palate- Sweet with almost Fruity Pebbles Cereal notes. That cornucopia of fruitiness prevails with some ripe melon and bramble berries.
Finish- turns a tad bitter and is rather quick finish for the proof.
Overall- as I transition from American Whiskey to scotch, this fits the bill! The sweeter notes and the buttery mouthfeel hit the high notes. Opened my eyes a bit.
The smell is like lacquered wooden chest, with some sharpness (that's 60% ABV I guess) on the end. The taste is rich but direct - it comes and quickly goes away. There are some sourness and hints of Oloroso. There is something I would describe like dried raisins soaked in rum kind of taste. With drop of turpentine it transfers to generic candied fruit tones. I like the strange sweet body of this whisky, but it needs few sips to properly grasp it.
Considering the very generous price tag for this bottle, it's definitely something worth try.
