Review and Tasting

Sampled on 08/09/2013

Appearance

(bottle 406 of 500) Clear, golden amber.

Aroma

Fruity nubuck leather, dried apricot and apricot jam with cherry, vanilla and cedar wood. Water releases notes of red apple.

Taste

Wonderfully sweet and fruity with apricot jam, blackcurrant, plum and generous vanilla, garnished with just enough spicy oak to maintain balance. A splash of water amplifies peppery spice more than the fruit so best served neat – why dilute a couple of craftsman’s finest work?

Aftertaste

Long, lingering cherry, apricot and vanilla. This exceptionally fruity whisky is perfectly balanced just as it pours from the bottle, just as its masters intended.
