Tasting notes by Billy Abbott (The Whisky Exchange)
Nose: Vanilla sponge and tropical fruit syrup. Pineapple upside-down cake with sprinkles, poached pears, white peaches and a sliced unripe mango. Syrupy sweetness is balanced by gentle woody spice.
Palate: Carefully balanced (literally) mouth-watering sweet and sharp notes kick things off: apples, tannic oak and a spoon of butter icing. Big oaky spice follows, with a dose of brown sugar to sweeten it up. Thick and juicy notes hide underneath, a river of sultanas and tropical fruit cordial sprinkled with black pepper.
Finish: Sharp orchard fruit softens to reveal Rich Tea biscuits, unripe mango and sweet butter. Oaky spice lingers.
Comment: Sweet and fruity on the nose with more complexity on the palate. One for tropical fruit fans who like things quite sweet.
