Nose – distinctly confident liquorice and bourbon notes with near perfect bitter sweet balance. Burnt honeycomb and toffee also abound.
Taste – outstanding richness and sheen to the enormous barley oak sweetness. Again, there is a bit bourbon cut to the cloth with the liquorice and molassed sugar but the barley adds that extra dimension.
Finish – Long, wonderfully layered oak offering variations of a sweet, dry theme. A touch silky with some cream toffee.
