Oily mouthfeel softens high alcohol strength and cracked black pepper spice. Toasty, fruity and faintly smoky with dried fruit, tobacco leaves, dry oak, zesty lemon, vanilla and ginger cake. With water comes bitter notes – better neat.
Lighty salty with black peppery spice, vanilla, toasted almond, leather, shortcrust pastry and tobacco leaf.
Toasty, fruity and lightly smoky with dried fruit, tobacco leaves, dry oak, zesty lemon, vanilla and faintly salty. This whisky is punchy but best enjoyed neat as water exposes bitter liquorice notes and destroys its structure and pleasing oily mouthfeel.
