continuing the tasting session with Charles MacLean at Oslo Whisky Festival:
Istanbul. Cardamom, nutmeg and henna. After a while everything kind of calms down with sweet toffee, cacao nibs and espresso bean notes. Finish: Very dry and shorter than I expected. Overall: It's a bold, rich and sweet whisky. Great for people looking for a new whisky to pair with their cigars. It's a little bit to thin though. I think the abv could be slightly higher.
