Nose
Toasted wholemeal bread, or perhaps sourdough; nutty, with walnuts and ground almonds. Baked apples with raspberry jam. Tia Maria.
Palate
Toasted note continues in a mouth- lling way; cloying, with tart redcurrants and a stack of cinnamon spice. Woody without being overpowering. Oranges with ginger.
Finish
Endlessly warm and delightful, with ginger, cinnamon and golden syrup.
Comment
Chock-full of avour from active maturation. More superbly made Swedish whisky.

Nose
Reminicent of stepping into a bakery in full swing, fresh baked bread, olives and potato loaves; hot doughnuts with icing sugar and strawberry jam. Then praline crisp, nougat and clotted cream.
Palate
The full bakery sensory trip comes through, with those sugar coated doughnuts and jam, blackberry and rhubarb compote with a citrus zing.
Finish
Like a hug from an old blanket, warming, comforting and just keeps giving. Spices and fruit layers.
Comment
Fantastic stuff, would make an interesting hot toddy.
