General description

Nice whiskey, but did not wow me. Some toffee and nutty sherry on the nose and palate, medium finish is a little rough and spicey. A splash of water adds some orxhard fruut on the nose and makes the palate creamier.

General description

on the nose first i get red fruit spices and caramel. very nice
On the pallet its oily, sweet and spicy going into a long oaky finish getting a little bitter in the end
for me adding a few drops of water makes it even better

General description

Orange and a bit too much alcohol on the nose. Fruits replace the alcohol pretty soon. Also a wood background smell. Spicy taste and medium finish.
