A lovely amber colour with copper highlights – a product of good European oak maturation. We were amazed by the beading in this whisky, so long lasting that it was still going long after we had finished writing the notes. A mild nose feel gives way to French apple tart (open style), with soft and moist rolling tobacco. Now, baked apples and boiled sweets with a trace of almonds. Water accentuates the tobacco, possibly even a freshly opened cigarette box. The sweetness returns with apple sponge and custard in an extremely well-balanced palate. Lively on the tongue with lingering vanilla custard and fudge.
