Review and Tasting

Sampled on 17/08/2014

Appearance

Clear, deep coppery amber.

Aroma

Honey and cinnamon spice with nutmeg, clove, toffee apple and plump raisins.

Taste

Lightly sweet velvety palate. Toffee, orange zest and warming cinnamon, nutmeg and clove spice, rounded with vanilla and honeyed nuttiness, generously fortified by malty Scotch whisky.

Aftertaste

Lingering warming honeyed spice.

Overall

The flavours are harmonious and this silky sweet liqueur is easier and less spirity than other perhaps more complex whisky liqueurs.
