Tasting Notes

Nose

Pungent, coffee laced with honey and barley so thick you could spread it! Herbal with oxidised, stewed fruit (plum and prune) and sub rye-like notes. Mash and buttery oak note. Water releases juicy citrus and dusty oak.

Palate

Alcoholic and needs some water to release the juicy barley, citrus and honey. Hints of coffee, stewed fruit and gentle but bittering spices. However it is the sawdusty, mature oak which steals the show.

Finish

Long and citric with the rye-like herbal notes lingering. \n

Comment

A little water and this beauty unwinds into a sublime whisky.
