Review and Tasting
Sampled on 11/09/2016
Clear, coppery amber.
Zesty tangerine orange, marzipan, roasted almond, dried apricot and vanilla with mild cinnamon spice.
Relatively dry for liqueur with a silky mouthfeel. Flavours of clove, honey, vanilla, toasted almond, marzipan, dried fruit and whisky.
Long finish with marzipan, toasted almond, dried fruit, malty whisky, honey and cinnamon spice.
This relatively dry blend of amaretto and Scotch malt whisky is somewhat reminiscent of a Rusty Nail with clove, honey, vanilla, toasted almond, marzipan, dried fruit and whisky. Delicious.
