Tasting Notes

"The aroma is full of tropical golden fruits with a fairly decent intensity. Toasted coconut and sweet curry spices join in the fun. The palate shows much of the same with a nice balance between malt and fruit with the sherry casks heightening and not overwhelming the whisky. A trace of char smoke and salt is present, but only just. The finish is lovely and lasting."
