Nose - Amber, Very Sweet. Initially it is ll creme caramel, caramlsed fruit sugars, wood sugar, toffee and fudge before some apple and peach come through. In time a charred note of bourbon with a pleasing dusty dryness. Has some Power.
Palate - Sweet start and quite fat and though the alcohol gives a little tongue-tingling buzz the result is a good mid-palate weight. The dry distillery character is there still, but there is now depth to counter. Water slightly dismantles the different elements, but add some dried mint.
Finish - Deep and Dark.
