Age: No age statement
Strength: 46.0% Vol.
Nose: Citrusy sharpness, like lemon tart. Underlying sweetness with hints of vanilla.
Taste: A bit of a slow starter, then there is floods of flavour on the palate. A pleasant sweetness reminiscent of 80’s chewy sweets with a hint of marzipan. More vanilla, but now creamier, and gently infused with the oak. Goes very well with seafood.
Finish: Disappointingly short for something with so much flavour. A little spice and vanilla notes but it just disappears so quickly.
We first tried this back on Hogmanay 2013 and both of us weren’t fans. This was after a wedding on the 30th were we had both drank a gallon of whisky.
The next time we tasted it we couldn’t believe how different it was and how much we both liked it.
