Nose: A wonderful candied nose of red apple, cognac and cherry compote. Dried pears. Herbal honey and a tinge of sweet mint. A complex spice note, to me mainly clove and cinnamon.
Palate: Lots of honey, very candied and fruity - the brandy is here again and we like brandy! A bit of walnut and dark chocolate. Clove and cinnamon again. Sometimes, a quite intense medicinal herbal note pops up, spearmint as well. Brandy notes and dried fruits show themselves in the long and spicy finish.
Both the nose and the palate are real shapeshifters, switching between highlighting different aspects of the whisky.
