Spirit NOTES

The nose, elusive at first, took us through a chestnut wood to a confectioner, where we saw marzipan petits fours, jammy dodgers and chocolate honeycomb bars displayed on wooden shelves. The palate (beautifully matured) offered juicy kiwi and lemon, vanilla ice cream, and raspberry, coconut and dark chocolate bars, plus lingering tingles of ginger and nutmeg. With water (careful!) – lemon tart, butterscotch, popcorn, and strawberries and cream on the nose; liquorice allsorts, green apple and macadamias on the palate. At 21 years of age, we combined selected casks from this distillery, and then returned the single malt into a variety of different casks to develop further. This is one of those casks.
