Community Tasting Note

  • yofog wrote: 96 points

    November 4, 2012 - Delicate, not so dark as expected. Amazing. Licorice, herbs, spice, rancio, extremely refined, basically flawless spirit. No alcoholic fiery or bite is left, it's evolved beyond that, and is my ultimate scotch to date, potentially redefining the category for me.

I had it at whiskyfest and other people around me didn't care for it, complaining that it was too light. I felt that it simply had the ethereal quality that spirits get when they're very, very mature. There's certainly a lot of flavor here, but it sort of floats across the palate the way a 50+ yr old cognac does. And while it sort of has the nutty/oily quality, it doesn't have the thick mouthfeel I usually associate with that flavor profile.
