Nose
Full, mature and complex. Malty with sugary baked exotic fruit and vanilla oak. Dense Armagnac dried fruits, treacle and sherry spices. Balanced with liquorice, coffee, dark honey and tart citrus.
Palate
Mature and malty. Honey and heather with light treacle, sherry spice, baked fruit and cocoa. Fresh citrus cleans and ushers in the sawdusty American oak.
Finish
Long and vivacious with the American and European oak in superb balance. Lingering dark honey and dark chocolate.
Comment
A magical mix of Bourbon and sherry matured spirit.

Nose
Upside down cake, a huge dollop of freshly squeezed pineapple juice, red bull, basil and thyme. A nice balance.
Palate
There is a sweetness to this which is rather delicious, and not too sickly. Dusted fresh doughnuts, and cigar casing. Really quite an appetising palate.
Finish
Sweet and full of fresh orchard fruits.
Comment
A really lovely whisky which isn't going to break new ground but at the right price point could be a staple of many people's cabinets.
