Single malt whisky from South Africa – 43%
My Tasting Notes
Colour: Dark gold
Nose: A bit shy first, becomes stronger with time. Vanilla, polished wood, grapefruit, apples, hints of pepper and a whiff of smoke.
Palate: Apples, hints of exotic fruits, vanilla, fudge, very gently peat and quite a bit of wood spice.
Finish: Long, spicy and slightly smoky.
Overall: South Africans can make good whisky too. It’s a bit on the spicy side, but the other flavours are strong enough to counter it.
Rating: 80/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
