Appearance

A deeper gold colour this time, initially a medium thick swirl line that breaks up immediately. #TheWhiskeyChaps

Nose

Deeper, richer, and more powerful. The evergreen boughs are still here, it’s a little dusty, eucalyptus, wood shavings, cranberries, blackcurrants again, dandelion and burdock, flat cola, and slowly Sherry laden dark fruits #TheWhiskeyChaps

Palate

Spicy but chest warming more that face slapping. Fisherman’s friends, aniseed, cough candy, bitter lemon, cigar leaves, rich dark fruits, cloves, dates, figs, cherryade, a super palate to be honest. #TheWhiskeyChaps

Finish

Long side of medium for me, and consistently spicy all the way through. Ginger root, cardamom, perhaps a touch of salt on the top of the tongue, vanilla, cinnamon, espresso, chillis, and blackcurrants. #TheWhiskeyChaps

My thoughts

I have to agree with @whiskeychap where this whisky is concerned, it offers so much flavour, it has lots of depth, is lovely and rich and well balanced. We found it a joy to drink, its a great sipper and a great one to savour and really get into.
