Very clean on the nose with sweet cereal notes at the fore. Sugar puffs then golden syrup on buttered crumpets give a luxurious quality, balanced by the fresh character of kiwi fruit, green mango and watermelon. Some Orchard fruit aromas of yellow apple and pear are met with lemon curd crepes before the cereal notes return once again.
This whisky is surprisingly mouth coating with vibrant fresh fruits and sweet lemon honey on the palate with discernible wood tannin. The finish is long and as the fresh ripe fruits slowly subside the Jacob’s Cracker and sweet, dry oak flavour boast its long maturation before cereal once again comes to the fore. Very complex, and with its distillery character still well and truly in tact.
