Theme(s):
A sweet Speyside with some dark chocolate and candied stone fruit
Tasting notes:
Nose: The aroma of lemon leaves and citrus fruit gently emerges with vanilla bean and some notes of thin chocolate milk. The chocolate milk is dark and splashed on sweet candied stone fruit that have been layered with manuka honey.
Taste: Lighter than expected on the palate, there is no surge of sweetness or bitterness and instead the whisky makes a lazy start off the running block. Eventually the sweetness develops and is quite syrupy as shavings of dark chocolate melt on the tongue and release some bitterness that quells the surge of candied stone fruits.
Finish: The candied stone fruits – cherry in particular – are drowned out by a cocoa and wood bitterness with shimmers of honey
Likes:
Very “more-ish” and drinkable
Dislikes:
The sweetness tends to dominate
Price:
$90 (Aus), $42 (US), £28 (UK)
