Clear, deep golden amber.
Pungent, toffee sponge pudding and nubuck leather with strong spice. Waxy evergreen leaves and potter’s clay emerge with water and the toffee notes turns more fudge-like. The spice is also subdued by hydration.
Toffee and golden syrup balance the spirity spice in this huge dram. With water the superb structure and mouthfill of this whisky is retained. Fudge and nutmeg spice with cleansing lemony citrus.
Fudge covered burnt toast with nutmeg and cinnamon spice.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
