Nose
?Butterscotch, French flan desserts (basically Crème Caramel in pot form) some cider vinegar and a clarified butter note. Very distinct and fatty.
Palate
?A hint of dry sherry, more cider vinegar, malty cereal and vanilla essence/ saccharine sweetness.
Finish
?Butter biscuits and vanilla coat the palate and give this whisky a reasonably lengthy finish.
Comment
?Sweet and a little artificial in places, but not without merit.

Nose
?Warmed toffee sauce, sweet pasties, pears poached in cider. Malt loaf and butter. Almost a meaty note develops, similar to the fat on Parma ham, cantaloupe melons and cinnamon sticks.
Palate
?A sweet malty edge, that malt loaf and butter note again, vanilla flavoured sugar and custard tarts.?Wonderful, great balance and lightness to it.
Finish
?Long and morish.
Comment
?Wonderful, great balance and lightness to it.
