My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Caramel, vanilla, hints of dried apricots, rather shy even with water.
Palate: Caramelized aprictos, orange zest, vanilla, ginger, eucalyptus, hints of freshly ground pepper.
Finish: Long, fruity and spicy.
Overall: This single malt almost feels like a grain whisky. While the nose is not very exciting, the palate is full flavoured and delicious.
Rating: 85/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
