Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by The Whisky Exchange

    Nose: Spiced cake batter and glacé cherries with cloves, sandalwood, polished oak and waxed deal. It has a base of dark, savoury notes, with damp earth, bark and forest floor hints. On top there's sweet cedar (cedar syrup?), dark leather, hints of barrel char bitterness, woody reson, Cola bottle chews, and liquorice. Water brings out fruity dark chocolate, raisins and garibaldi biscuits.

    Palate: Dark, rich and thick - raisins and leather, clove and cherry, coffee and ginger. Black pepper spice, dark oak and gently bitter char sit against sweet liquorice, green leaves, mulchy forest floors and tingly, woody spice. Water amplifies the liquorice flavours, although knocks out some of the sweetness, emphasising the earthy, savoury notes.

    Finish: Dark barrel char, savoury earth, peppery spice and gentle sweet oak.
