Nose: A creamy, sweet nose offering up barrel char and vanilla. Aromatic spices, a touch of coffee, treacle and sweet, honeyed cigar leaf notes. After a time in the glass it offers up dried grass and Demerara sugar too, and a tinge of potpourri.
Palate: Great sweetness - creamy porridge oats with plenty of dark brown sugar and cinnamon, as well as a tinge of rye-like spice. It develops with dates, manuka honey on granary toast, and perhaps sweetcorn with salty butter.
Finish: Beautiful length, fading on sweet spices, vanilla, and something reminiscent of a Caffè Nero Amaretto Latte.
Overall: A beautiful whisky with oodles of sweet spices and buttery rum notes.
