Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy Abbott (TWE)

    Nose: Polished apples, waxed jackets and honeysuckle sweetness. Hints of damp wool slowly develop, balanced by soft sweetness.

    Palate: Sweet and creamy – strawberries and cream, and rhubarb and custard sweets – with a background of crumbled brownie (chocolate soil, anyone?) and musky green leaves. Water brings out more candy notes and a touch of Turkish Delight.

    Finish: More rhubarb and custards, icing and green leaves. The sweetness slowly fades, leaving the leaves.

    Comment: Exactly my style of whisky and easily fulfilling my expectations. Creamily textured with controlled sweetness and a balance of sweetshop flavours and leafy, forest notes. My favourite of the 2016 line-up.
