Nose: Incredibly intense. Buckets of vanilla combine with flamed orange zest. A spicy, rich nose with candied peels, cola syrup, cloves, cardamom and oak.
Palate: An absolutely huge whack of high-proof spicy vanilla-laden complexity. Cola cubes, molasses and honey, cinnamon and crème caramel. Hints of Valencia oranges with cloves and mixed peels.
Finish: An incredibly long finish, cinnamon, allspice and creamy custard apples.
Overall: If there was ever going to be anything that could top the standard Rumbullion! this is it. The additional ABV will be a welcome boon to those used to cask-strength whiskies, and those who appreciate deep and intense flavours.
