Not a big hitter or EXTREME, but who cares. Sometimes it's nice to be a little gem.
Aged 10 Years
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Rubber bands, a touch of Evo Stick and dry sherry. Some notes of caramel and hazelnut shells. Given time, a more fragrant passion fruit note develops.
Palate: Butterscotch sauce, a very sweet fudge and an additional layer of sweet cream sherry. Actually quite surprising, given the austerity of the nose.
Finish: Soft and creamy, with a little fruit emerging as well.
Comment: Not a big hitter or EXTREME, but who cares. Sometimes it's nice to be a little gem.
Nose: Dark forest honey, milk chocolate, raisins and hazelnuts. A lovely warming note of rasin and cinnamon swirls. Some exotic fruits, mango, manderin and grilled pineapple.
Palate: Vanilla icecream and toffee sauce, with honeycomb pieces. Crunchie bars and cinder toffee blocks.
Finish: Rum and raisin fudge, very lush.
Comment: Excellent, solid and a well put together dram.
