delicate sweet and fruity palate. Easy to drink, not really complex with
a relatively one-dimensional finish. A delicate all-day dram, however,
not at this inflated price. Be very careful with the add of water as the
whisky is almost masked by a few drops.
I thank Caminneci - Wine & Spirit Partner for the sample!
Sweet and fruity on the nose. Ripe peaches, mixed with dried apricots
and overripe oranges. Subtle malty flavours emerge with breakfast
cereals, a whiff of vanilla, slightly floral and waxy notes. Very
The sherry is more prevalent on the palate. Sweet with sticky fruity
flavours of ripe peaches, apricots and mango. This is immediately
followed by a warming load of delicate spices - oak, ginger, cinnamon
and white pepper. A touch of slightly bitter walnut flavours arrives
with subtle earthy and spicy notes towards the finish.
The finish is medium long and sweet with apricot jam and stewed apples.
Becomes dry and slightly bitter on the tail with oak and walnuts.
WITH WATER: Water significantly tames the delicate fruitiness on the
nose which releases only a whiff of vanilla and malty flavours. The
fruitiness' almost gone on the palate with a remaining part of slightly
warm spices and subtle vanilla. The finish is quite short, subtle warm
with a hint of oak.
