Review and Tasting

Sampled on 21/11/2015

Appearance

(sample bottle 0310 of 1550) Clear, deep golden amber.

Aroma

Blackened fruitcake, died fruit, pear drops, overripe peach, vanilla, toasted almond, leather, shortcrust pastry and tobacco leaf.

Taste

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.

Aftertaste

Lighty salty with black peppery spice, vanilla, toasted almond, leather, shortcrust pastry and tobacco leaf.

Overall

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.
