- Tasting Notes
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Malty, gristy notes, almost like walking around a distillery. With time in the glass, more almondy, raisiny, almost curry spice comes through. Bursts of parma violets and rose petals. An intriguing nose.
Palate: A sweet mouthfeel, with melons and marzipan. Bit of oakiness and more maltiness. A delicate, crisp finish.
