Heading out for a pre-dinner whisky, better warm up by having a whisky…
Colour: Polished copper.
Nose: Soft. Both in strength and aroma. Strawberry marshmallows; orange and poppyseed muffins.
Palate: Thin on the palate. Muted citrus notes – there’s candied orange and some dried orange peel. Sweet yet dry.
Finish: An oaky, salty tang in the fade.
Comments: Matured in ex bourbon barrels before being finished in tawny port hogsheads. It’s like the whisky is not quite sure what it wants to be – it’s a little sweet, yet salty too. It’s quite pleasant without scaling any tremendous heights. A perfectly acceptable warm-up dram!
