...and this is whisky for drinking purposes only. It is rather simple but very delicious without any flaw or off-note, a dram to enjoy in good company!
The colour is deep copper and the nose offers a sweet profile with lots of different fruits and honeys in a spicy toffee cream. It is rather simple but easy to sniff and very delicious without any off-note. A fine nose for stuff to quaff - so do not over-analyse it, just enjoy it!
The taste is about the same: fruits, honeys, toffee, spices, some distant herbs and firm but never dominating woods. It is creamy and chewable (some milk chocolate impressions pop up) and again rather simple but delicious. All is balanced and without flaws, a typical old-style dram that was produced for just one destiny: to be quaffed and enjoyed without intellectual efforts.
The dram arrives warming and coating on the palate without distracting moments. The finish is long and adds more spices and wooden notes which are perfect to contrast the sweet taste. No distracting bitter or astringent moments. Water is not needed as it just flattens the dram.
