Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: nutty and fruity with a silky air; caramel apples with a crisp citrus backbone; floral and toasty.
Palate: medium bodied, nutty chocolate fudge, dried apricots and citrus; more caramel apple and tea dregs with Demerra sugar; sweet, honeyed and toasty; polished fruits and a savoury umami element.
Finish: medium-short, clean, fruity and sweet; very elegant.
Comment: this is a big cup whisky, as my staff would say; elegant and tasty; crushable; you will want a big cup!
Producer's Tasting Note
Nose: Malty, citrusy aroma with scents of black cherry, toffee and oak.
Taste: Notes of vanilla and pine nuts dominate the palate, and lead to a long, malty finish.
