Tasting Notes
Craig DanielsNose: Yo-Yo Honey biscuits, Violet Crumble (honeycomb confectionery), marzipan and candied citrus, some fruit bitters. Palate: grapefruit and citron marmalade, lots of malt with sweet pastry dough and then wood bitters and a candied citrus peel reprise. Finish: Sour fruit, wax, warming alcohol and wood bitters. Comment: not a big whisky and a bit shy to start but gets better in the glass and I like the way citron/marmalade/grapefruit notes last all the way through to the fruit bitters finish. This is sophisticated malt whisky.
Oliver KlimekColour: Bright amber - Nose: Raisins, apples, hints of malt and old leather. - Palate: Baked apples with Christmas spices, raisins, oranges. - Finish: Long, fruity and spicy. - Overall: The taste reminds me of German Bratapfel, an oven baked apple with a filling of nuts, raisins and spices that is usually served around Christmas. Quite complex and quite enjoyable.
