Notes

A lovely warm sweet nose greeted the Panel like a hot cup of spiced apple tea with star anise, ginger root and cardamom served with a lemon meringue pie. Spicy and sweet on the palate; plenty of ground cloves and aniseed, combined with candied mint leaves and lemon peel. Water brought out more sweetness; wine gums, juicy fruit jelly babies and a mango-vanilla coulis whilst the taste had the intense sweet creaminess of banana fritters with vanilla caramel sauce. After 12 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky directly into a Sauternes cask for the remainder of its maturation.
