Nose: Light and fruity with fresh raspberries, green bananas, crunchy green apples, fruit salad chews and golden caster sugar.
Palate: Thick, vanilla rich custard with a swirl of golden syrup, red liquorice, icing sugar, buttery pastry and a hint of lemon.
Finish: Sugar-topped shortbread, slight rye notes, a sprinkling of sawdust and a drop of vanilla essence.
Notes: I've long wanted to try something from this Swedish distillery and the Brukswhisky was everything I hoped it would be. It's a fine whisky and is beautifully balanced. I will definitely be buying a bottle early in the new year - if not before. Lovely.
