The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: Light at first but develops a moist fruitcake and nutty dimension with an additional but unmistakable rumminess. The spice is only a vague hint in the background. I bet it wonít be the same on the palate.
Palate: Immediately rich and smooth before a massive spicy kicks in with raisins, spiced apple and custard. Mouth-puckeringly massive spice. The finish is pleasant with a light vanilla note.
