Wauw. Very powerful considering that it is watered down to 40 %. Unfortunately there aren’t as much going on, on the palate as in the nose. Some vanilla, oak and spices. The finish is just in a hurry to get out of the office and on weekend.
I don’t think that the balance is very good. It starts good, with a lot of flavors in the smell, then the taste doesn’t offer as much and at last the finish is a bit pale. A bit complex though. Not the best but still a good whiskey. I will rate this whiskey 81/100 (21/22/19/19).
