Nose: Honey, sherry, blood oranges, lime, a little bit of oak, a kind of burnt toffee smell, and something maritime, like seaweed.
Palate: It is biscuity, with some bitter chocolate, nuts, malt, toffee and smoke.
Finish: Mainly toffee, nuts, smoke and some lingering bitterness.
Last Word: I have to admit that on first opening I didn’t take much of a liking to this whisky and probably would have given it a score of around 73/100.It’s been open for around 7 months now and, while never going to be a world beater, it has improved quite a bit and scores. The smoke saves it.
