Tasting Notes

The nose has dark chocolate and coffee, with an earthy background alongside figs and ripe dark berry fruits. Rich dark dried fruits like a fruit cake and rich spices. This is a rich whisky with lots of dark cooked fruit flavours and fruit cake, all very evident on the palate. Damp tobacco leaves and very dark chocolate mix with caramel and baked plums. The finish is rich and long with spice, chocolate and dark dried fruits including raisins and dates. Conclusion - The small cask has given the spirit great richness without taking away from the distillery character of the spirit.
