|Craig Daniels||Nose: Yo-Yo Honey biscuits, Violet Crumble (honeycomb confectionery), marzipan and candied citrus, some fruit bitters.
Palate: grapefruit and citron marmalade, lots of malt with sweet pastry dough and then wood bitters and a candied citrus peel reprise.
Finish: Sour fruit, wax, warming alcohol and wood bitters.
Comment: not a big whisky and a bit shy to start but gets better in the glass and I like the way citron/marmalade/grapefruit notes last all the way through to the fruit bitters finish.
This is sophisticated malt whisky. |
|Oliver Klimek||Colour: Bright amber -
Nose: Raisins, apples, hints of malt and old leather. -
Palate: Baked apples with Christmas spices, raisins, oranges. -
Finish: Long, fruity and spicy. -
Overall: The taste reminds me of German Bratapfel, an oven baked apple with a filling of nuts, raisins and spices that is usually served around Christmas. Quite complex and quite enjoyable. |
