  1. Titi94 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting Notes by SCOMA : 

    Aroma: Dominated by chocolate, smoke and clove aromas. Almost like mulled wine, which develops in floral attributes.

    Taste: Initially, caramel and caramelized apples, then apples and pears.

    Finish: Spicy, licorice and bitter chocolate. 

  2. Alex did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasting notes by the producer (George S. Grant):

     

    A light bronze-honey colouring.
    Nose marked by chocolate flavours, smoke and clove spices. Almost like mulled wine which develops into floral attributes.
    Initial caramel makes way for toffee apples, then onto apples and pears.
    Finish more spices, liquorice and bitter chocolate at the back of your throat.

    A perfect balance between whisky and sherry.
