Nose of chardonnay, honey, hints of mustard and lavendar, and a hint of smoke. Palate is deliciously sweet, I mean really so, accompanied by the characteristics of the nose. Finish is long and moderate, with spice moving to the forefront, especially in the tails. This is ridiculously drinkable, to a dangerous level (no doubt assisted by the 43% ABV, but that can only play so much of a role). The simple sweetness makes it downright craveable. A great whisky to start the night with, or for anytime at that matter. Finally, a Chieftain's bottling worthy of the name.
Immediate white wine nose, pungent, rich, and sweet. Smells like its worth exploring. Titters between sweet and dry in perfect balance. Fresh and clean as a whistle. Finishes organic, briny, and the sugar lingers for 30 seconds.
