Official Tasting Notes
Colour - Polished mahogany
Nose - Rich blackcurrant preserves and maple toffee balance against complex woods aromas and aromatic spices that remind one of an antique humidor.
Palate - Rich fruit notes of dried figs, maraschino cherries, dates, plums and dried apricot alongside premium milk chocolate creates a flavour reminiscent of Black Forest gateau. Subtle wood spices and a leathery meatiness’s adds depth to the whisky and an unctuous, velvety mouthfeel.
Finish - A subtle sweet and floral note like gourmet Turkish Delight
