Panel's tasting note: "A slight artificial sweet and minty aroma greeted the Panel on the nose neat, like a juicy fruit chewing gum, mint toffees or kid’s orange flavoured toothpaste. With time turning deeper and richer and we got the satisfying scent of sweet porridge with orange, maple and pecan. The taste was both sweet creamy apple and oat puree, and eggnog with cinnamon, nutmeg and rum. Water added doughnuts, poached pears and marshmallows and the pleasant texture of yummy Portuguese custard tarts. After 13 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky directly into a Sauternes cask for the remainder of its maturation."
Drinking tip: "With a cup of coffee during coffee break"
