Description

 

On the palate the whisky feels gentle and soft, but quite rich and mouth coating. The notes of green apple and orange from the nose dominate to begin with. The orange is more prominent and has a more candied peel quality to it and the green apple seems more reminiscent of stewed apple. With time a lovely butterscotch note develops to compliment the fruit and this characteristic is backed up by further sweetness in the form of honey, juicy sultanas and milk chocolate. The sweetness is tempered by additional elements of hazelnut, cinnamon and crystalised ginger.

The finish is of medium length with the candied orange peel and butterscotch notes to the fore. As these fade the earthy ginger and wood spices start to come through – this gives the finish a warming and slightly drying quality, which is accentuated by a distinct nuttiness.
