5. The Whiskyphiles tasting notes
- Colour light amber gold (7/20) oily, quick medium-large tears and legs.
- Nose Sweet, grape soda, mixed fruits, icing sugar, strawberry cupcake frosting, raspberry ripple ice-cream (old school), rose Turkish delight, malty, nutty, honey-nut cereal.
- Taste Medium-light body, really zesty and sharp, once this subsides creamy toffee, apple pie and cinnamon, woody and tannic, herbal, with water, barley sugars, much softer, creme caramel.
- Finish Medium, woody and a touch bitter, caramel and toffee notes persist.
Pleasant with some presence of distillery character and plenty of oak wood influence. The cask variety adds to a multitude of flavours and aromas also.
