    N: This follows on perfectly from the Royal Brackla WB, both sharing a similar honeyed-cereal ‘Honest John’ character. So whats different? Firstly the mould/the dunnage/the fustiness, and the slow years of maturation that have softened the spirit suitably without it losing vibrancy - although the abv helps maintain that vibrancy no end. Additionally, its worth noting the consolidation of the constituent parts that lead to a concoction better than the sum of,.. The resulting brew is of a honey>porridge core where candied limes reside with a development [in the glass], on stewed plums & Farley's Rusks and then onto [a touch of] varnished mahogany and sweet bread dough.
    T: Another sweet one to taste, starting first on honeyed barley notes before an offering of chocolate confectionary - Kit Kat, tutti-fruity, Boost bars, Cadburys caramel, Wham bars,.... Having said all that, remarkably it’s not overly sweet which is down to it’s a large savoury core with a slight bitter=sour touch. The honeyed note however is maintained throughout.
    F: Finishes sweetly and neatly with more honeyed fustiness at the death.
    C: Stupidly easy to drink this one, the years stripping the ethanol heat to leave a deliciously drinkable, sweet, soft and subtle, bourbon-oaked honey spirit. Great stuff, but journey seekers should look elsewhere.

    SMWS tasting notes:

    Fairly restrained, almost shy aromas were peeking out of the glass but give it time, become acquainted, and you will realise there is a lot to discover. The scent of caramelised oranges and lemons were followed by subtle but nevertheless deep notes of chocolate covered caramel apples and spiced plum crumble with plum brandy custard. The taste neat was a balance of wood spiciness and dryness but at the same time a sweet fruitiness like a pineapple & Marie biscuits dessert. Diluted, plenty of fruit; apples, peaches and mangos, whilst on the palate a well prepared Manzana Verde Daiquiri.

    DRINKING TIP: Ask for it ‘natural’ (straight up), not ‘on the rocks’ or ‘frozen’
