Cask 2 – 47.6%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Medium amber
Nose: Stewed apples, melon, toasted hazelnuts, vanilla, polished wood, hints of nutmeg.
Palate: Honey, stewed apples, ripe banana, vanilla, hints of buterscotch and nuts, hints of nutmeg and cardamom.
Finish: Long, fruity and slightly spicy.
Overall: A very well-balanced fruity dram with no disturbing notes. It does not take much water, though.
Rating: 86/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
