Tasting Notes
Craig DanielsNose: cream toffee, tropical fruit, (banana, ripe pineapple) hints of both bourbon and sherry wood, liquorice, honey on toast. Palate: honey, liquorice and metal Finish: cream and toffee, some metallic bitterness. Just keeps getting better - great entry level dram - highly recommended.
Oliver KlimekColour: Gold - Nose: Apples, honey, vanilla, hints of banana. - Palate: Honey, toffee, apples, vanilla, a hint of ginger and pepper. - Finish: Long and fruity. - Overall: This creamy and fruity malt is a very nice entry level dram, but it also offers enough complexity to satisfy more experienced palates.
