N: Butter-honey>butterscotch, rum n raisin and sherried sugars. The last dram of the bottle reinforces the distillate-led drive and a slight oriental umami (tamari/sweet-meaty/sweet-sugared shiitake) with a creamy, fresh-green [lettuce) maltiness.
T: Comes in spirity=creamy. Flavour-wise, this is all about the malty raisin capture just like the DL sherry cask #8793. Grab as many of those raisins as fast as you can as they don’t hang around too long. More sweet rum n raisin with some firm waxiness also - taste & mouthfeel. Desirable sweet-oat biscuit base on development.
F: Nicely waxy & malty with a subtle porridgy>biscuit finish and some slightly off=key witch hazel notes at the death.
C: All-sorts to analyse here. Sits happily in the 85 score zone.Scores a B-
