Tasting Notes

Nose

Pungent, manure, coffee and lightly sulphured. Hints of herbal and lightly cardboardy spice follow. A little industrial but some dried fruit and honey try to counter.

Palate

Soft and toffeed with hints of dried fruit. Again, industrial with a slight wet cardboard intimation. Thankfully there is thick fruit to offer some balance plus white liquorice and honey. \n

Finish

Mouth-watering, mineral and a little hot with lingering liquorice and light spice notes.

Comment

Not exactly my favoured style of whisky but it has fruit and sweetness to balance the ‘spirit’ character.
