Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy Abbott (The Whisky Exchange)

    Nose: Initially sweet and intense: toffee, caramel sauce, tablet and fudge roll out the glass. Fragrant notes of oaky incense notes and sweet leather hints sit underneath, with a floral and delicate centre. Before things get too sweet, old oak appears, with wax polish and damp-forest rancio touches.

    Taste: Nutty and spicy to start, with hazelnuts and cinnamon dipped in toffee. Intense toffee sweetness and cinnamon spice calm to reveal candied lemon and orange, damp oak and brown sugar. Leather and charred notes sit at the back.

    Finish: Floral sweetness fades away slowly, leaving nutmeg, brown sugar and bitter orange zest.
