Tasting notes by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Nose: Toffee, caramel and varnished oak. Sultanas and dark brown sugar hide under the surface, pop-ping out in a burst of spicy lardy cake richness. The spice edges towards kola tonic sweetness as floral notes develop.
Palate: Soft, rounded and rich. More toffee and caramel are joined by vanilla sauce and brulée topping. The burnt sugar notes build and get fruity - spiced tarte tatin with a ladleful of red-wine poached pears. The sultanas from the nose get jammy.
Finish: Brown sugar and baked apples slowly fade to leave sweet apple and nutmeg.
