Member Ratings and Notes
Adam
 
Nose is nutty and floral, with white wine, and slight ammonia.  Palate is fruity and decently-tasty, sweet (marshmallows), with light spice... I taste some cilantro.  In the long finish, some pepper enters.    Water tames the cask-strength flames without losing much, letting the sweetness come through better, and opening up some notes of peaches.  This is certainly decent-enough whisky, but it's approaching the cask-strength version of "ehh," and on the lower end for D&M's Aficionados Club... which actually says good things about D&M.

Initially alot of alcohol vapors.  Waves of sweet fruit and citrus zest follow.  Fruits are more lively on the palate followed by waxiness of green apple peels and bitter lemon peel.  The tang from the lemon peel caries over to the medium lengthed finish.
