YUM. Already looking forward to another glass of this.
Release No. 042
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Rich sticky toffee pudding, chunks of dates and barrel-aged maple syrup. BBQ’d orange segments, cinnamon and a dusting of nutmeg. Some orchard fruits with pear, and an oily cloth.
Palate: Rich mouthfeel but relatively drying, bringing amber and sandalwood, with pear drops and nutmeg. Sweet green apple skins and vanilla custard, before heather honey on sourdough bread.
Finish: Bringing that warmth, leaving you with crunchy honey nut cereal.
Comment: YUM. Already looking forward to another glass of this.
Nose: Coffee cream liqueur chocolates. Intense passionfruit, peaches in syrup and lychee. Cedarwood and black cherry jam. Bramble crumble with cinnamon and custard. Sage and tarragon.
Palate: Medium. A medley of intense, very ripe tropical fruit and stone fruit, like on the nose. Mouth-watering and cordial-like. Some sumac and spicy ginger and nutmeg notes. Chewy toffee and anise, too. Retronasally, cedar.
Finish: Long. The passionfruit dries out leaving subtle menthol cooling.
Comment: A superbly constructed malt.
