An unusual aromatic display. To try when you feel different? Maybe. That perfume profile made my tastebuds uncomfortable though.

Comment: An unusual aromatic display. To try when you feel different? Maybe. That perfume profile made my tastebuds uncomfortable though.
Nose: Rich and deep. A hint of white truffle and a light charred note. Oily with nutty/sweet oxidised notes. Thick honey, barley sugar and ginger.
Palate: Big, thick and honeyed - blossom/clover. Red fruits, some spicy wood extract. Unctuous and thick.
Finish: Dessert like.
Comment: Amazing depth of character for such a young whisky. Has been bottled at its peak and shows a great balance of distillery character and the weird decayed glory of Sauternes.
