Nose
Exceptionally attractive notes of golden syrup sponge cake, with raspberry jam and muscovado sugar. Cre?me bru?le?e. Sultanas. Toffee Crisp chocolate. Caramel.
Palate
Velvety sweet notes, with heather honey, maple syrup, some slight hints of mint and fennel to balance out the toffee fudge and salted caramel chocolate. Excellent stuff.
Finish
Long and syrupy, with the herbal qualities to keep the balance.
Comment
Heck of a dessert whisky.

Nose
Like getting into the perfectly made bath, warming, relaxing and tranquil. Lovely sweetness and gentle nuttiness here. Chocolate coated toffee pennies and vanilla cream pastries.
Palate
Plenty of vanilla here with a Bourbon- esque spiced edge. Maraschino cherries, dried apricots and mango sit with a wrapping of oak vanilla and pencil shavings.
Finish
Long, ever so long and sweet with those spices adding some tingling.
Comment
Just magni cent. A real star of a whisky.
