Nose is like a fresh-baked raisin-and-pumpernickel loaf. And guess what? The palate tastes just like it too! Neato. An amazing blend of awesome spice, deep dried fruit, cinnamon, and yes, raisins and pumpernickel. A complex whiskey to ponder while watching obscure French New Wave cinema or whatever artsy-fartsy stuff it is that you folks do.
Very interesting, malty, almost rye nose. Initially light sherry in the mouth, and then the sherry simply explodes, huge, almost overpowering sherry and malt. Really remarkable. A mid-length finish. The malt character distinguished it from typical sherry monsters, and I really enjoyed this.
