Our Tasting Notes
Nose: Honey sweetness mingles with floral notes of heather and garden herbs, some tropical fruits of papaya and mango with some balanced oak notes.
Palate: The honey sweetness continues but now combines with salted caramel and some barrel char or smouldering oak, tropical fruits and garden herbs linger.
Finish: Some smoke and spice with floral notes of lavender give this whisky a medium finish.
