General description

nicer in the mouth than on the nose, fruit, touch of spice and a little oily. definitely one with a drop of water, nice bitter chocolate and tobacco notes!!

Nose

very caramel forward on the note, burnt toffee, butterscotch, some stone fruits trying to break through like apricot and peach buts it's hard work.

Palate

much better than the nose, very fruity, apples, strawberries, some cinnamon spice but more like apple tart with cinnamon. some of that burnt toffee towards the end. with water chocolate and tobacco comes through but very bitter.

Finish

short, not alot going on. a little spirity really. some of the fruit lingers, but like wine gums. again with water, tobacco lingers.

General description

Easy to drink, even for more than one glass. If the price dropped, I’d make it my “standard whisky”.

Color: Deep copper

General description

Sweet pear and apple peel, creamy toffee and notes of cold coffee. Chocolate covered raisins with cinnamon bread. Rather thin body and a shortish finish, thanks to the 40%, unfortunately.
