Quite a pleasant nose marked by marshmallow hints and a great smoothness recalling the best sherry agings. A perfect nose anyway.
In the palate, a very complex mix of slightly woody notes, a bit of citrus acidity and a nice smoothness and above all a great balance and a remarkable roundness.
The finish is very long and keeps the memory of this very nice woody hints for minutes. No sweet sensation in the finish of this nice whisky.
No trace of bad finish, as it is too often the case with sweet wine finishes. A great success

The nose is rather pleasant, mixing some woody notes to clear winey ones. I could have said "sherry" if this sample had been tasted in a blind session... The smell is close to plum jam.
In the palate, the same (not unpleasant) impression of wine and heavy sweet notes and some slightly acid hints, the whole within discrete woody notes.
The finish is long and warm, still dominated by the same aromas than the mouth and nose were.
