Review and Tasting

Sampled on 31/01/2017

Appearance

Clear, deep golden amber.

Aroma

Pungent and honeyed with lavender, golden syrup, vanilla, peach and white pepper. Water amplifies golden syrup and vanilla.

Taste

Honeyed with newly sawn oak, subtle peach and lavender. Then comes the spice – plenty of it with ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon spice and white pepper spice. Water brings out more sweet honeyed notes with caramel and golden syrup and reveals desiccated coconut.

Aftertaste

Long finish with white pepper, cinnamon and vanilla oak. With water the finish is dry and spicy – surprisingly so considering the relatively rich palate.

Overall

Honeyed and bourbon-like with enlivening spice. Its richness makes this whiskey quaffable while its spiciness adds balance and sets you up for the next sip. The 45% high alc./vol. is softened by this whiskey’s vanilla richness.
