Tasting Notes

Official Tasting Notes

Nose: Immediate wow factor – dried fruit, peaches, nectarine and Bakewell tart. Jammy and intense. The refill sherry cask adds sweet spice but never overwhelms the distinct distillery character that adds floral notes and a hint of herbal heather. The nose on this whisky is just delightful so take your time.

Palate:
A rich palate with dried fruits from the refill sherry cask combining delightfully with cooked stone fruits from the elegant spirit which also provides a gentle herbaceous element that plays with the wood spice from the cask. There’s a touch of cinnamon over a malty nuttiness, mocha and creamy toffee.  A wonderful, warming whisky, complex and intriguing yet very approachable and easily tamed with a drop of water.

Finish:
A delightful finish balancing fruity notes with spices. Impressive length, improved with just a drop of water.
