Review and Tasting

Certificate

Sampled on 05/03/2018

Appearance

Clear golden amber.

Aroma

Attractive leather rubbed with linseed oil, toasty oak and delicate apricot and stewed apple fruity aromas.

Taste

Rich, easy yet complex, fruity (stewed apple and pears with ripe banana) palate with pronounced vanilla, roasted almonds, majestic oak, gentle cinnamon and pepper spice.

Aftertaste

Long barley finish with oak tannins turning dry as it fades with lingering vanilla and faint rye (burnt plastic-like and spice) flavours.

Overall

As the bottle label says, this whiskey is "charred for a rich smooth taste" - it's certainly easy drinking but with depth of flavour and complexity. A brilliant whiskey at its price point.
