Deep gold with excellent beading, we are already assuming a great texture to this whisky. Tell-tale ginger, spices and even ginger cake on the nose. Being an older whisky, the development continues: now, maturation warehouse, Green and Blacks dark chocolate, with oak lactones turning this to bitter chocolate. A little water introduces old fashioned tents and hemp ropes (possibly some phenols), pear drops and fresh apricots. More ginger on the tongue (spicy), with red peppers and dried orange peel. A warming tea time dram with ginger cake.
