Tasting Notes

Details

This dark gold whisky has a well-rounded nose of sweet vanilla custard, chocolate shortbread and a slight lemon zest at the end. Rich and creamy on the palate with vanilla pods, butterscotch sauce and soft fruits. The finish is long and sweet with a gentle citrus aftertaste.
