Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Intriguing nose that veers between sweet, candied aromas of toasted marshmallow and candy floss, right through to more ‘serious’ aromas of leather, dark chocolate and fresh wood shavings. Freshness comes in the form of melon, green apple and sprightly orange, while there’s some buttery, toasty aromas in there, too.
Sharp, refreshing blast of green fruit, then full-on cinnamon, barrel char and leather. Powerful at full strength. A little water brings out its softer side, emphasising the candied-fruit element and sweetshop notes. The contrast between the soft, plump fruit character and the sturdier, spicy notes from the barrel is a beautiful thing.
Split evenly between the fruit and oak, with the oak just shading it.
A dram of two halves, this teases with its playful soft fruitiness, then delivers a sharp blow of woody spice when you’re not expecting it. All in all, a delicious, fascinating whisky.
