The nose is slight for a whiskey, but undoubtedly rich with dark fruit, cherry, raisin, fig - Christmas cakey - along with floral notes and lemongrass.
The taste is sweet and creamy on the palate to the front, with butterscotch, honey and peppercorn. Followed by dried fruit returning maraschino cherries and a pinch of brown sugar.
The finish has drifting notes of ginger spices and sweet vanilla with a faint shaving of almond to end a complex whiskey from start to finish.
