Description

A luxurious array of aromas filled the room; rich Black Forest gateau with plenty of Kirsch, Morello cherry Bakewell tarts, moist honey cake and a dark chocolate fudge cake. After so much self-indulgent pleasure we had a taste - full bodied with a great balance between dark Muscovado sugar sweetness, the intensity of roasted coffee beans and the oily spiciness of a rye whisky. Water tamed the experience a little but the additional scent of crème brulee with black pepper honeycomb and crystallised tarragon as well as, on the palate, banana and clotted cream cupcakes made this a truly irresistible experience.

Please note a misprint in the February 2017 Outturn:
We apologise for the misprint in the February 2017 Outturn where this whisky has been mislabelled “Fresh, crisp and mouth-watering”. The name visible above on this product listing, “A Hedonistic Experience”, is correct and is the name that appears on the bottle label.
