My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Medium amber
Nose: Mixed fruit cocktail with honey, vanilla, hints of polished wood and nutmeg.
Palate: Honey, more of that fruit cocktail, vanilla, just a tiny hint of cheese and pepper.
Finish: Long, slightly fruity and slightly spicy.
Overall: This malt has a lovely nose and some interesting flavours on the palate. But overall it is missing a little depth.
Rating: 80/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
