Producer's Tasting Notes
Nose: Peppery, heavy and oily, with scents of chewy Highland Toffee. Some dried fruits; rum and raisin ice cream, old Spanish brandy. With water, the oiliness grows whilst the fruitiness becomes a heavy perfume, like that of lilies at night. Further development brings nougat and warm creamy milk, with nuts.
Body: Oily. Smooth.
Palate: Delicious at natural strength, even better with a little water. A big, thick mouthfeel - sweet then drying elegantly; sweet peppers followed by a hint of matchbox striker. Traces of clove and herbal notes too, of parsley and sorrel. Slightly mouth-cooling.
Finish: Dry. Cooling. Herbal.
