Appearance – Burnished Gold (artificial), medium legs.
Nose – Lots of dried fruits, apricots, cream soda, cereal, maltyness, biscuity, warming, oak tannins, white pepper.
Palate – Cherry shoe polish, citrus lemonade ice lolly, dark fruits, black pepper, nutmeg, root ginger, cardamom, a little savoury meat, pineapple cubes, cola cubes, very nice.
Finish – Long, lingers for ages, loverly and warming, cherry, white pepper, walnuts, and old leather.
My thoughts – A very enjoyable whisky, the palate is packed with loverly flavours, and a long warming finish.
Would I buy a bottle? – Yes, it bold, and full of flavour, more than enough to keep a palate entertained.
