    TASTING NOTE by G&M;

    Colour: Dark golden.

    WITHOUT WATER:

    Nose: Fresh with toasted malt notes. A hint of aromatic spices and a touch of

    summer fruits - raspberries.

    Palate: Ground pepper - warming. Creamy with sweet influences and a touch

    of hazelnuts.

    WITH WATER:

    Nose: Fresh, fragrant with a sweet marshmallow nose, a pleasant menthol

    note lingers.

    Palate: More subtle, sweet with a defined vanilla edge. A gentle spice lingers in

    the background. Heavy Kiwi fruit influences emerge.

    Body: Light.

    Finish: Long.

    Cask Type(s): Refill Sherry butt.

    Whisky Style: Warming, yet mellow Cask Strength whisky.

    • Nose
      First of: sour/savoury & quite a lot of grain & cereals, ethanol, black eraser rubber, vanilla & lemon, (86)
      A bit later: turning a lot sweeter with some caramel/butterfudge, red apple, quince, lemon, waxern (paraffin & fruit wax), a touch coastal with some salt & hemp rope, also some chocolate syrup, eucalyptus, wet chalk, wet hay & very distant charred coals, (88)
    • Taste
      oily/waxern at the start with some red apples, burnt chocolate cake, becoming thinner when going into the finish even turning into a dry & prickly mouthfeel occasionally, (86) this seems to get less over time (87)
    • Finish
      black tea w some dried apple bits, mineral & a touch brine-y, quite tongue drying, turning slightly bitter towards the end with some malt, leather & faint chocolate notes. (85)
      Later: turns much sweeter with a sirup-y quality if given enough time, caramel, toasted cereals, malt still with an edge of the above. (88)
