ABV40 Rating: 86
Such an elegant nose but was quickly followed by a slight disappointment upon taking the first sip. But once the realization sets in, it’s kinda decent. Finish feels goooood, like sitting and chillin in a rocking chair good. The sherry note is quite pleasant.
It might have been a wonderful whisky if it was bottled at its original cask ABV.
