Review and Tasting

Sampled on 23/09/2015

Appearance

Clear, pale to mid-golden amber.

Aroma

Spicy and fruity with sherbet, old leather, old books, grass, stewed fruits and smoke. Farmyard and red apple notes are released with water.

Taste

Ripe pear and pear drops with meaty character and smoked pear/apple juice. More apple with water and also creamy milk chocolate and waxiness.

Aftertaste

Smokiness and meatiness emerges with lingering waxy grassy notes.

Overall

Special due to being from a new closed distillery but also special due to its superb quality. Smoky and delicately spiced with red apple, pear drops and creamy milk chocolate.
