More of a cocktail than a single malt.
Rich Madeira Limited Edition
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Jelly babies,super-ripe fruits, blueberry/sloe with light aromatic bitters. Water brings out home-made jam note. Stewed fruits.
Palate: Jam skimmings. Tayberry oak. Very fruity. Spirit completely swamped.
Comment: More of a cocktail than a single malt.
Nose: Unusual. A mix of vegetal and fruity aromas. Ivy,Cider apple. A musty note like that of a room kept closed for a long time. Some sweeter notes too. Red grape juice. A touch of Toblerone.
Palate: Sweet,sickly sweet. Oaky flavours. Something medicinal like a cough\rsyrup. Sweet. The alcohol is not tamed
Finish: Short but burning.
Comment: A young whisky? Seems dislocated. What type of oak? Obviously something special. Not convincing.
