Nice, but overhyped. As a regular cigar smoker, nothing particular in combining this whisky with a good cigar

General description

Ein leckerer Tropfen! Geschmack: Süß und die typischen dunklen Früchte für Sherryfässer. Aber: Für meinen Geschmack ist der Whisky zu jung und zu sauer im Nachgeschmack.
