Other reviews... Nose: a little drier, with a tad more oak char and fresh oak shavings, getting a little plankish. Less of the coffee darkness underneath. More tart fruits this time, like redcurrants and blood orange. Rum and raisins. Still a coppery note and leather. Mouth: this seems a little fruitier, perhaps because of the triple distillation. Lots of red berries, raspberry jam, oranges and a refreshing acidity. Here as well the darkest layer (chocolate, maple) is hardly noticeable. This also lets more room for the woody flavours, which are slightly dominant. Finish: long, dry, on over-infused tea, blackberry leafs and some tannins. This is essentially the same style as before, simply because there’s so much Apera / sherry influence. If you prefer to have less PX sweetness and don’t mind a heavy woody side, then this is the better one for you. I personally prefer the roundness of the Elixir of Life. -
