Review and Tasting

Sampled on 14/04/2014

Appearance

Clear, light-mid golden amber.

Aroma

Vanilla, creamy caramel, spicy oak and ripe banana with toffee, lemon and freshly shelled walnuts. Water releases oaty Horlicks-like notes.

Taste

Spicy oak with dry tannins and faint saltiness eased by underlying sweet grain, fudge and toffee. Hints of coffee and chocolate. Water amplifies spicy oak.

Aftertaste

Salty, vanilla, coffee and chocolate. We love this grain whisky’s mocha coffee spiced cereal flavours but not its stratospheric price.
