Spirit NOTES

We were baking honey and oat cookies as well as making rum and raisin fudge, while on the palate neat a fresh menthol start was followed by a ‘rough sweetness’ like chewing on a sugar cane stalk and swallowing the liquid – not what you would expect, but rather yummy. Initially, with the addition of water, a peppermint/herbal aroma was soon followed by stone fruits, oak and a hint of cinnamon. The taste reminded us of orange peel, dusty oak and in the finish a wee bit of dry clove. After twelve years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky into a 1st fill hogshead which previously matured rye whisky.
