Nose: on the initial it was strong alcohol burn for me, have to nose slowly, to enjoy the aroma, perfume like carry some mineral with it, some old wood, maybe there's a bit of Springbank funk, some berry like fruit sweetness, managed to get some earthy notes together with the wood


Palate: Wow, the waves of complexity 😳, coming around various fruits, the initial glow carried a minty feeling, leaving quickly followed by more fruits. Palate here wins big-time 😅, another wave carrying some mild spicyness, ending with light earth notes


Finish: Medium finish, lingering wood like feeling, some Springbank funk, wasn't very long for me though, mild warmness on throat.


Score : 88, WB168596


Thank you @weihong_0220 for the dram
