  2. Tauti did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS notes:

    The alluring nose starts with honey and cereals, pain au raisin and a fruity onslaught of banana, mango and peach with vanilla. Hints of herby savouriness (bay leaf) develop as well. The taste is very sweet. Intense fruits, plum jam, mango and vanilla are joined by subtle new wood and sap notes. To finish it becomes herbal and slightly minty. Add water and the fruitiness (and intense sweetness) suggests sherbet lemons and boiled sweets with fruit salad and vanilla. Dried ginger and white pepper spice round it off. It's still sweet and spicy with big flavours to taste - fruit salad, vanilla, rhubarb, tobacco and ginger heat with a little pleasant butteriness.
