Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by Billy A

Nose: Hazelnuts, spicy cinnamon, raisins, candied orange and floral touches up front. There's quite a lot of sweetness, with some dry, leafy notes balancing barley sugar and vanilla fudge.

Palate: Thick and oily, with dark chocolate, real maraschino cherries, dark wood, plump raisins, freshly sawn oak, spicy cinnamon (almost to Hot Tamale levels), liquorice and biscuits - garibaldi biscuits with cherry jam?

Finish: Spicy cinnamon hangs around, with raisins, more cherry, toasted oak and a bit of barrel char.

Comment: Lighter than the old Flora and Fauna, but still packed with flavour: sweeter and fudgier than before, but with a good slug of sherry-cask-matured whisky in the mix.

A fantastic first release from the new range – just the right mix of flavours and its rich too. Can't wait to try the rest of the range!

Light & very smooth with a beautiful balance of sherry on the palate. One of my new favourites

Rare old? Another marketing ploy from Diageo , how rare and how old? The whisky is not as rich and robust as the Flora and Fauna 16, a relatively light and fragrant dram which I would recommend for a whisky beginner , opens up slightly with a dash af water.Rather pricey for a 50cl bottle.
