Being one day short, This is the second oldest Waterford Whisky I have tasted until now, aged at 3 years 11 months and 17 days, which is still 3 years old and as I said multiple times, the whisky is still young, but the idea is totally different.
The nose offers a spring day in a farm for me. Damp hay, lemon zest, shaved oak, vanilla and various spices. The palate is thick with malty qualities. Though, it has more than that. Marzipan, drying cloves, chocolate, red peppers, sweet vanilla. A complex character. The finish is not dull with vibrant oak spices and peppermint.
As I touched the liquid to my tongue, I got the sweet nature of this whisky. It tends to give you sweeter tones on spicy backbones. The dry and spicy finish is fun.
