That whisky definitely needs water to cut the edges. Incredibly oily. With\ra good dash of water, refreshing and invigorating.

Comment: That whisky definitely needs water to cut the edges. Incredibly oily. With\ra good dash of water, refreshing and invigorating.
Nose: Clotted cream kicks off a very complex nose. A little nutty with some malt\rnotes. Almost a green feel to it, a grass edge, dried herbs.
Palate: Thick and coating. The creamy notes come through with a poached pear\rand custard edge.
Finish: Sweet and dry.
Comment: Great nose but it does not follow through. That said a very restorative\rdram for cold nights.
