A complex, rich and interesting character. Water cuts the edges and adds creaminess. A real delight.
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Assertive, ethereal. Orange blossom. Cooked fruit. Lime marmalade. An earth after rain scent slowly covers up the fruit, releasing a hint of distant smoke. Spice dust.
Palate: Velvety, sensually mouthcoating. Does not abandon its assertiveness though.
Finish: Dry, oaky. Bitter orange peel.
Comment: A complex, rich and interesting character. Water cuts the edges and adds creaminess. A real delight.
Nose: Fat. Aniseed twists, cake dough, allspice, millionaire's shortcake, seaside rock with spicy burnt orange overtones. In time plenty of vanilla.
Palate: Ripe and full-bodied. Very sweet with a cocoa powder density before a fizzing lift of spice.
Finish: Good length becoming sweeter.
Comment: Excellent balance. Recommended.
