Nose

Warming with obvious notes of alcohol, dark honey and toffee aromas at first nosing. Sweet wine aroma is obvious, when nosing it more from the distance. Notes of candy floss and candy apple dominate, when you are getting closer. But be careful - when you get too close the alcohol will burn your nose. Becomes oaky after some time.

Inviting - the smell is enticing you to slurp.
Taste

Powerful start, spirity, warming from deep inside. Rolls very nicely over the tongue and has kept its toffee sweetness. Additional notes of raspberries and oak. Quite pleasant. 

Finish

Long and oaky.

Comments

Good and pleasant whisky worth trying.
