Note: I first tried this whisky earlier this year and wrote about it back in August. As you can see from my notes below, this time, I found a few more tastes and smells.
Nose: Sweet oak, honey, mashed banana, golden syrup, marmalade, vanilla
essence, freshly cut grass, ground cinnamon, chewy butterscotch toffee,
dried apricots, crushed mint leaves and barley sugars.
Palate: Rich and oily, with heaps of sweet vanilla, grass, spicy cinnamon and a dollop of thick honey.
Finish: Icing and marzipan, apricot jam, a hint of spearmint and dry oak. One of the best whiskies I've tried this year. A real cracker.
