First it is very mild on the nose and it doesn’t promise much, but after some minutes in the glass, it opens and the sweetness from the port pipes becomes more distinct. On the palate, the first impression is round and sweet. After some time, you feel the 54% alcohol with a pleasant sharpness and some salty notes. This is a very comfortable whisky, which surprises with its complexity. The 54% alcohol suits the taste and it gives a more oily-like and smooth texture with a sharp character.
