Nose: A gloriously rich barrage of ripe Pink lady apples, followed by sweet hints of acetone, vanilla and stewed fruits. The orchard fruit and floral nature reminds us a little of Yamazaki 10 and then we’re onto sweet nutty notes; first we get Almond Baklavas, then caramelised hazelnuts, and a hint of amaretto.
Palate: A rush of creamy sweetness. It’s soft, despite its strength. Very sweet on the palate, with more than a hint of Refreshers (the chews, not the tablet version).
Finish: Long, creamy sweetness. Fruity, floral.
Overall: A delicious, if very sweet whisky.
