Fresh aromas, softly spiced toasted pine nuts, peaches and pears and a hint of crystallised flowers reminded us of a Gewurztraminer from Alsace. On the palate neat, Turkish delight, custard filled doughnuts and Scottish Empire biscuits (two buttery biscuits sandwiched together with raspberry jam) made it a real treat. With water, new oak combined with baked apples and homemade custard topped with refreshing granite gave it a comforting nose and to taste now, iced green tea with mint and ginger as well as a shot of Chartreuse liqueur. After 17 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky directly into a second-fill sauternes cask for the remainder of its maturation.
