Nose: Crikey. Deep, intense, fragrant fudge. With a nose like this, you may not want to drink any! Given time some fruity banoffee emerges with dried coconut, dark spices and more complex and creamy caramels.
Palate: Toffee bitter, clove and rye-like pepperiness. Good body. Treacle covered almonds.
Finish: The spicy toffee goodness keeps on coming.
Overall: More along the lines of Batch 1 (the colour is a giveaway!), a well-aged Boutique-y grain whisky. Perfect.
