Platinum Series – 55.7%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Bright amber
Nose: Fresh hay, apples, honey, vanilla, polished wood, a hint of smouldering wood
Palate: Mild peat, raisins, stewed apples, toated nuts, lots of tannins, hints of sulphur and pepper.
Finish: Long, dry and slightly smoky.
Overall: It could be a geat whisky, but the adstringent wood tannins are much too strong for my taste. But you will love this dram, if you like that.
Rating: 80/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
