My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Bright Amber
Nose: Raisins, dried figs, orange marmalade and honey underlined by a hint of rubber that fades away with time.
Palate: Mixed dried fruit (apricots, raisins, figs), oranges, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Finish: Long, fruity and slightly spicy.
Overall: A very nice expression centered around dried fruits and mild spices but it’s not not the maritime style you might expect from this distillery. No need to add water.
Rating: 84/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money ????
