Bottled at 46%.
Nose: Quite oaky and peppery, and then vanilla pushes through. Overall it’s quite leathery with some cinnamon and a sudden hit of granny smith apples.
Palate: Spicy as the nose suggests and the granny smith is there in abundance. Cinnamon and salted caramel make their way through in time.
Finish: Warm, spicy and lingering.
I can totally see the quality of this whisky. It’s got a lot of interest in it. It’s not to my taste, but that’s just me. If you like this sort of whisky it’s very good value indeed.
