Nose: Sticky toffee pudding, toffee apples, cinder toffee, Cadbury's Caramel bars and spiced fruit cake hiding at the back.
Taste: Oily and spicy, but easy drinking despite its strength. Stewed raisins, apple caramel, some spicy cinnamon tingling and a touch of liquorice root.
With Water: More liquorice, some dark chocolate and sweet dark wood.
Finish: Long and lingering, with Fruit and Nut chocolate bars, sweet wood and hints of liquorice and apple skin coming at the end.
Comment: A very drinkable cask strength whisky which takes water really well if you think it needs it, which I don't.
Appearance: A deep golden body glistens with rich crimson.
Nose: A luscious balance of succulent sherry aromas explode in honey drizzled golden sultanas spiced by warm oak and gentle ginger.
Palate: Intense toffee and cocoa cascade into the rich sherry soaked dark fruits. Zested orange explodes in the long alcohol infused chocolate fondant.
Finish: Long and Lingering.
