Rather grassy and flinty, but after a few moments rich notes of sherry, one of these bourbon cask matured whiskies that can smell of sherry, then, ham and bacon, raisins and toffees with vanilla. With water: flowers, lilies and peonies, marzipan and rosewater, quite superb.
Once again, sherry in the attack, with many dried fruits and jams, as well as notes of prunes and chocolate, then some coffee notes. With water: excellent, even richer, yet clean and fresh, with figs, dried pineapples and various roasted nuts, then, definitely some spices, mostly cloves, nutmeg and just a little star anise.
Long length finish, rich with more marmalade and black pepper.
