Feels younger than the Cotswolds reviewed just before this one. Sure one is a rye and the other a single malt, but it feels more one-dimensional, even with the PX finish. Disappointed with this one.
Spices, caramel, herbal mints, strawberry jam, ginger and cinnamon, quite pepperish. The PX finish also brings red fruits, sultanas and milk chocolate.
Waxy and spicy arrival, quite pepperish. A bit oaky, some orange and pomegranate, lots of sweetness, rye bread covered with honey, but feels a bit too simple.
The warmth stays long in the throat, with some sweetness and oak.
