Colour: Golden amber
Nose: Is this really a
whisky? Yes it is indeed but a very different one as the first
notes to hit the nose are those of quite herbal aniseed. This is
amazingly different with lots of floral and herbal nuances, yes
almost aniseed, maybe candy floss? Then something almost fruity.
No aniseed here on the palate but everything else herbal and
floral transport nicely from the nose in a slightly dry way.
That suggested fruitiness now develops into something akin to
dates or maybe figs.
Finish: Very long with hints of dates and figs.
Overall Impression: Very
different and certainly a good whisky which could be best suited
as an alternative Christmas dram or certainly a winter warmer.
