Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonButtery maltiness. Slightly sharp. Canned apricots. Very round oily taste. Then on those apricots, or similar fruits. Special taste here, but not entirely natural I'd say.
Craig DanielsNose: fresh cut grass, floral candy, sour sobs, sherry, sappy and vinous, tiny hint of liquorice. Palate: warming, resiny and medium sweet, smooth but characterful; actually quite rich in the mid-palate and has a nice grip/mouthfeel. Finish: sweet, woody and slightly sour, but in a nice way. Comment: Really smart whisky; reminiscent of Black Bush from 15- 20 years ago but maybe more restrained and slightly more refined.
