Clear, mid golden.
Char-grilled corn-on-the-cob and crispy buttery croissant with fudge, vanilla and lemon zest.
Slightly sweet with slight smoky peat vegetal-like influence, overdone toasty maltyness, generous buttery vanilla, sweet barley sugar. Faint grilled brazil nut.
Long, spicy malt with buttery nutty notes. The spirit is well worthy of a ‘recommended’ rating but sadly is diminished by its marketing.
