Distillery Tasting Notes

Nose

Quite a bit of spice in the form of nutmeg, vanilla pudding, so intense ... then there is also nut involved. There’s also a hint of shredded coconut, and a certain sweetness mostly related to toffee, brown sugar and indeed some liquorice as well.

Palate

Quite creamy and sweet with vanilla and sugars, juicy and rounded, with the spice adding a nice touch, pepper, cinnamon and baked red apples in whipped cream complete the experience. Hints of bananas, orange, lemon. Faint fragrant smokiness. Lively.

Finish

Ginger, toasty oak. Lovely long. nice and creamy, pastries, waffles with partial chocolate coating, the finish is very long and more spicy than sweet.
