Nose: Sweet and rich with boiled sweets and Demerara sugar. Hints of banana chips, morello cherry and allspice.
Palate: Rich and intense with notes of cloves, aniseed and stewed fruit. A hint of vanilla cream, berry fruit and pepper.
Finish: Long, peppery finish with dried grass and malt.
Overall: A deliciously intense whisky with all kinds of character coming through from the cask.
