Ooh, this noses with wonderment. There’s blue steel and the thick haze of flower bouquets crowded into a small room. And yet there’s also room for a paste made from bananas one day before full ripeness; braided fern leaves; and handfuls of caramel cream candies.
The mouth continues the delights with missing a beat. In two words, it’s super creamy. In fact, in one word, it’s lascivious. Let’s call this the Jessica Rabbit of whisky mouths: drawn that way. How is that, you ask? Think very sherry with nary a cherry and you’ll know what I mean.
The finish reverberates like a subsonic elephant call. With magical earphones on, the call is not only audible, it’s in English, and it urges me, repeatedly, to enjoy this whisky. Oh, you better believe I will, my whisky enthusiast elephant friend. You better believe I will.
