Andrew's Tasting Note

Nose: bags of candied nuts: orange coated almonds, maple sugared walnuts, balsemic pecans and beer nuts; this is the Honey Nut Cheerios of whiskies, full of honey and nuts; there are some fruity elements too, crushed raisins, PX sherry and dates with sweet spices.

Palate: more honey and nuts, especially orange coated almonds, but the fruits have come to the fore: sweet PX-like and nutty Oloroso-like notes (perhaps a Manzanilla cask?); pan-seared white fruits, dried cranberries, ripe peach and burnt fruits.

Finish: long, sweet, honeyed and nutty with fading creamy toasted oak!
