Nose : Sweet and earthy. This is an Autumn whisky. Red berries, apples, mustard seeds, wood smoke and wet stones. I do enjoy the tempered, fruity sweetness on this whisky.
Taste : Notes of sweet wine. Grapes, vanilla, dark chocolate, citrus and wood smoke. It also has a darker side, the earthiness from the nose. Wet dirt and fallen leaves. Stony fresh water beach.
Finish : Medium long finish. Sweet and now a little oaky. The oakiness manifests as fresh oak and wet planks. The sweetness is now more towards caramel and fudge, with a smoky layer.
