Tasting Notes:
Tasting notes by Billy A

Nose: It’s heavy and rich, as you’d expect, with Crunchie bars, chocolate raisins, Eccles cakes, cinnamon fireballs and fresh leather. 

Palate: The sweetness continues, with intense raisins, fruity dark chocolate, bitter cocoa, sweetened coffee, treacle toffee and liquorice sticks.

Water: At 60.2% it’s quite hot and while worryingly drinkable without dilution, takes water quite well – it bumps up the sweetness and adds some gummi fruit notes to the palate, as well as amplifying the darker notes in the finish. I was happily drinking it half/half with water and it maintains an impressive intensity of flavour even below 40%.

Finish: With more eccles cakes, soft liquorice, toffee apples, cinnamon spice and lots of alcoholic warmth.

Comment: Crunchie bars, coffee, raisins and liquorice condensed into a single dram – I may have to stock up before it sells out, as each batch now does with increasing speed.

For the money , I am struggling to find a nicer whiskey from this region! With a dash of water, it's so full of flav

Loving this whisky with a bit of water it really opens up the sweetness and becomes even tastier.
