The palate is succulently blackcurrant (strange!).
The finish is wine-gummy.
An intriguing dram. I'd love to have a full bottle,
Top notes came butterscotch, melted butter and caramel toffee, seconded by unripe pineapple, followed by crème brulee. A very pleasant start! Would score higher if the aroma is more intense - the 50% ABV didn't seems to give much hand. Typical grassiness at the back. With time became quite floral. There appeared juicy, succulent green grape...mouth watering! It's good that the butterscotch aroma lingered. So far I like it very much! Couldn't stop nosing it!
Interestingly there's no trace of the butterscotch and melted butter in the nose. The palate's fresh and juicy. There's even a little blackcurrant, which was lovely. Unlike the nose, the alcohol did show a kick, albeit a small but noticeable one. The mouthfeel thus turned from round to a bit dry. Roasted cashew skin gave it a little bitterness in the good way.
The finish is, sadly, a little resinous which I never like. Luckily wine gum came to the rescue. Overall the finish was mild and of medium length.
