Hogshead 5174 – 55.8%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Stewed apples, hints of tobacco, vanilla, toasted nuts and toasted bread, cardamom, allspice and pepper.
Palate: Caramelized apples, toasted hazelnuts, vanilla, cardamom, pepper and hints of chili.
Finish: Long, fruity and spicy.
Overall: Very strong wood aromas from toasted over aromatic to hot and spicy dominate this excellent whisky, any more and it would be too much. This was bottled just in time.
Rating: 87/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
