Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Colour: Light gold.

    Nose: Fragrant, honeyed and sweet. Some ripe apricots, mead-like, and a curious minerally/flinty note, followed by some sweet white chocolate.

    Taste: An initial burst of mint toffee, with baked fruits such as caramelised oranges and apricots, lots of honeycomb, almonds and dates.

    Finish: A rich, syrupy aftertaste, with more caramelised citrus and pears, some creamy fudge, but always an intriguing mentholic/eucalyptus sensation in the background.

  • Tasting notes by Stuart Peskett (The Whisky Exchange)

    Nose: Rich, sweet notes of buttered toast and popcorn, along with brioche and milk chocolate, then fruitier notes of cherry, strawberry and dried fruit.

    Palate: Spicier on the palate, with cinnamon, clove and violets. Roasted almonds, more milk chocolate and candied orange arrive, along with hints of red fruits. A drop of water brings out more fruity and floral notes.

    Finish: The rich spiciness lingers.

    Comment: Much richer than The Original, Bacalta ramps up the toasty spiciness. The 46% ABV is another plus, giving a satisfying mouthfeel.

    Wonderful spice, with great fruit and honey. The cask influence is superb. Highly recommended.

    Lovely apricot, almond and honey flavors. This one is not to be missed.
