General description

aroma is sweet and caramel. I found the initial taste bitter, reminiscent of sake. Aftertaste is a very long, pleasant, flower petal impression.

General description

Very friendly and mostly caramel, vanilla, and floral. Impressive, friendly, eloquent, hidden complexity. A good dram to enjoy slowly throughout the night.

Nose

Deep caramel, spice from oak, hidden smells of distant flowers in a blooming garden. Lingering in fresh and formal perfume.

Palate

Initially sharp with oak spice, gives way to caramelized malt, vanilla extract, and rose water with other floral notes.

Finish

Finish is medium long, vanilla remains as pollin, flowers, underlining completely I can't identify, almost a slight (but pleasant) soft rubber.

Sherry and orange nose. Refreshing. Reminded me a bit of Glenmorangie Original. Palate is sweet, salty and a bit of spice. Some complexity, fairly delicate. Finish is short.

General description

Delicately sherried nose with hints of fruit, nuts, and honey. Very smooth going down with traces of plums, sherry and honey on the palate. Finish is slightly sweet and produces some mild heat. A pleasant whisky to keep around. Slightly more expensive than other 12 yr single malts but worth the price.
