Appearance – It’s straw/white wine in colour, very viscous on the glass, and has slow thick legs.
Nose – I get marzipan, almonds and amaretto up front, with pineapple slices, lemonade, cranberries, with Turkish delight lingering in the background, it’s a rather nice nose.
Palate – The palate is rather different, with blood oranges, seared pineapple, salted bacon, white pepper, it’s making me salivate now, and it’s juicy too, fruit cocktail syrup, red currants, cranberries, there’s nice oak in there too.
Finish – It’s the long side of medium in length, with honeycomb, vanilla, white pepper, icing sugar, and golden syrup.
My thoughts – I’ve rather enjoyed this whiskey, there’s lots of flavour, especially on the palate, it doesn’t really develop, but it’s flavoursome.
Would I buy a bottle? – Even though it’s a sourced Whiskey at this point, it has been blended, and I enjoyed it more than enough to want to buy a bottle.
Notes – Sadly I couldn’t find out if this bottling is natural coloured, but the lightness of it suggest very little if any colouring. I cannot confirm whether it has been non chill filtered either.
