Nose: Very round indeed, the alcohol not too present, with sherry, cocoa and vanilla. After a couple of minutes in the glass, a first sip and taking a deep breath, a fruity note emerges. Yellow fruits come to mind, more reminiscent of apricot jam than oranges.
Taste: The cocoa smell turns into a milky chocolate taste, with a slight bitterness hinting at cappuccino. More spicy than you would have expected after the sweet smell.
Finish: Long finish with more bitterness, milk chocolate turns into dark chocolate. Oak at the end.
Comments: Elegant presentation with a beautiful bottle design. Taking the price out of the equation this is a wonderful whisky. Well-balanced between creamy sweetness and spiciness. Take a big sip to fully experience its taste.
Rating: I rated this whisky 88 out of 100.
