(tasting sample Batch Two) Clear, pale-mid golden amber.
Apricot and orange marmalade, vanilla fudge, charcoal, toasty – almost pencil shaving oak, clove and cinnamon spice. Water releases chamois leather-like aromas.
Dry toasty oak, vanilla and sweet sherry before spirituous peppery and cinnamon spice take hold. Water amplifies toasty oak even more, but with it, also marmalade fruit and nutty notes.
Sweet vanilla fudge fades to leave lingering toasted oak, cinnamon and clove spice.
Toasty oak, bordering on pencil shavings, dominates this whiskey, partially masking attractive fruit and sherry notes. Takes water well so one bottle of this cask-strength whiskey packs an awful lot of flavour.
Type of wood used for additional maturation 'finishing': American Ex. Bourbon
