By Blackadder – Cask ABD 1007 – 46%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark gold
Nose: Vanilla, mixed sweet fruit drops, ginger and a whiff of somethling slightly savoury.
Palate: Grapes, raisins, honey, hints of pineapple and coconut, candied ginger, hints of mild pepper.
Finish: Rather short and fruity.
Overall: A malt that has some quite nice flavours but it’s all over much too soon.
Rating: 79/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
