The comments on the neat nosing were an everlasting flow, like the current of a waterfall - walnut cake, raisins, mango chutney, aniseed, pink peppercorns, dark sweet cherries and fig syrup. On the palate; deep dark cherry liqueur, malt loaf, plum jam and a spicy bean cacao chilli in the finish. A drop of water and waxy oranges as well as macadamia nuts and freshly ground coffee appeared, while to taste; suave and plush with spicy cherries and blackberries and in the finish a cocoa powdery note, creamy, silky tannins and Asian spice. After five years in an ex-bourbon hogshead we transferred this whisky into a first fill Spanish oak oloroso hogshead.
