- Notes taken from my blog
Vanilla and caramel are immediately recognizable, then quickly followed by orange, honey and sultanas. Quite delicate nose.
Very sweet arrival, fruity, with a touch of ginger. A bit thin mouthfeel at first. Mid-palate, the spices get slightly more present, with oak, vanilla, caramel and more sweetness, almost sugary. I would have loved a bit more abv and a thicker mouthfeel.
Medium length for the finish, on oak, caramel and dark chocolate dipped in an espresso.
Being a subtle one, this shouldn’t follow a whisky like the Three Ships at 53.7%, so I have a thorough palate reset.
C: Moorish with a subtle complexity and a seriously lovely buttery chocolatey finish. It’s ashame then that the grain is so prominent, because once you’ve identified it, you can’t un-see it. Then again, check the price for a 22yo blend of this calibre. On the day, £59 at TWE, or more at MoM!
Fruit and honey. Soft, very unintrusive.
Similar to the nose, but more of everything. Malty.
