Tasting Notes

"Whiffs of vanillin and orchard fruits appear on the nose at first, but there's also a touch of rhubarb. Overall this is a sweet, honeyed whisky with sweet notes of marzipan, accompanied by lemon peel and a whisper of saw dust. There's a somewhat bitter arrival and the oaky notes are more present on the palate. A creamy mouthfeel with white pepper and cloves leaves some room for apple compote, juicy pears and vanilla. No frills, just good whisky."
