  1. Nergal did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS tasting notes: The initial nose had punnets of sharp green Golden Delicious apples and ripe peaches before we poured a glass of Galliano, a liqueur infused with star anise, ginger, citrus, juniper, musk yarrow, lavender and pressed vanilla. On the palate, a big burst of sweet-tart citrus flavours like biting into a kumquat (Cantonese for golden mandarin orange) followed by a sweet herbal syrup based on woodruff. After reduction, the apples turned sweet and red, well-polished too, before the aroma of pine sap and honeysuckle took centre stage. To taste; boozy melon bites with a Golden Cadillac cocktail, served in a champagne glass or a sidecar.
