Tasting Notes


Nose: This golden coloured whisky has a mellow nose of sweet vanilla custard and shortbread which is gently enclosed by lemon zest. Taste: Rich and powerful on the palate with vanilla biscuits, butterscotch and a touch of oak wood. Finish: The finish is long and sweet with roasted oak on the aftertaste.
