    Nice spirit driven Whisky. Quite interesting.
    • Nose
      Very spicy with a hint of pepper. Some banana skin and a little bit of vanilla fudge. Slightly oily and a hint of shoe polish. Maybe some tobacco. A very quiet yet substantial nose. takes some time to work it out.
    • Taste
      Initially oily and lemony. Turns quite dry after that, with some heavy spice, oranges and some nice herbal notes. There is a strong sweetness all throughout the taste, but it is not overbearing. Good bitterness in the end. Super intense spirit driven taste.
    • Finish
      Short to medium but that is not a problem. The taste is the main event here. Strong oily sweetness in the after taste.

    Nose - , more refined but the lemon and cream are still evident.

    Palate - Creamier but still spirit on lemon meringue pie.

    Finish - medium now.

    Pretty decent stuff but you have to like sweet lemon or you are wasting your time.
    • Nose
      Lemon, brine, shortbread biscuit, cleaning fluid, turps.
    • Taste
      Spirity on lemon, cream, sherbet, slight bitterness, biscuit again and lockets throat lozengas.
    • Finish
      Long on lemon cream, quite sweet
