Review and Tasting

Sampled on 02/03/2013

Appearance

(bottle N0. 003543 MSPS.11) Clear, bright golden.

Aroma

Inviting and delicate. New leather, cedar wood, toast and vanilla with acacia honey, red apple, dried apricot, cocao, lime zest and honeysuckle blossom. Water teases out fruity aromas.

Taste

This graceful yet characterful whiskey is light to medium bodied and delicately spicy with cinnamon, white pepper and pencil shavings which balances sweet vanilla, ripe red apple and boiled sweet fruit. Notes of lime zest, doughy bread crust, cacao and warm woody flavours. Water brings out more more sweet red apple and pencil shavings.

Aftertaste

Medium length finish with rich vanilla, dried apricot and red apple balanced by elegant oak and delicate spice. A truly lovely and very knowledgably man suitably honoured by a fabulous whiskey.
