Tasting notes by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Nose: Brown sugar, papaya, barley sugar and cigar boxes – a wide ranging hint of things to come. Fragrant oak and fruit are wrapped around a core of mixed peel. More fruit sits underneath: sultanas, raisins, apricots, peaches and crunchy pears. Butter, vanilla toffee, anise and baking spices float around above.
Palate: Spiced fruit cake gallops across the palate pulling a wagon of fruit: gummi chews and wine gums, stewed apples and pears, and a touch of apricot. Darker notes of spiced shortbread and cocoa powder develop, with hints of black liquorice. The fruity core remains, with candied fruit notes building.
Finish: Sharp fruit and spice fade to leave chocolate brownies and wine-gum fruitiness.
Comment: Fragrant, elegant and complex. The three types of cask have done their bit and layered fruit and spice on top of the rich pot-still spirit. One to contemplate.
