Wine Enthusiast 96 points - Deep and concentrated aromas of nuts and raisins. The flavors in the mouth begin salty and spicy, slowly turning to sweet dried fig and candied nuts. The texture is leathery and rustic adding to the intensity of this whisky.
Intriguing and challenging bouquet of aromas of roasted nuts, old leather, black pepper, old oak and dried fruit. Palate entry is aggressive in spirit, but sweet and pruny; midpalate is drier and features tastes of leather and grain. Aftertaste teems with oak resin, hard cheese (meaning, rancio), candied nuts, candied fruit and dark honey. Add mineral water. 96-100 Points Wine Enthusiast
