Producer's Tasting Notes
Colour: Orange Gold.
Nose: Childhood memories of visits to the sweet shop come flooding back. Open the creaky door and take in the aromas - tropical fruits, barley sugars and nougat sitting on a counter of seasoned oak. Almost too much to choose from but finally you choose two old favourites - homemade rich butter fudge and chewy caramel. Warm and comforting.
Taste: The cask influence really comes to the fore. Sweet vanilla, salted caramel and subtle oak from the ex Bourbon cask are all there to enjoy. The vintage Tawny Port pipe adds a different dimension, gently soothing the taste buds with mature fruit and warm spice. Complex but reassuringly smooth and fulfilling.
Finish: A fond farewell, satisfyingly long and smooth. The sweetness fades gently taking with it layers of spiced oak and toasted brown sugar. A fitting end to a truly Elegant and perfectly balanced whisky.
