Tasting Notes by thelin79
First review, very much a beginner to whisky. I had read and heard quite a few good things about this one before I bought it duty free 2 weeks ago.
So I actually had fairly high expectations!
Nose: First thing I got was honey, sweet honey.. then caramel and fruit.
Taste: Smooth, more honey, more caramel, maybe some hints of spices.
Finish: Slight warmth spreading through the mouth, the taste impressions stays there for longer than I expected.
All in all I was not disapointed. I have mostly had experience from Islay so far in my short whisky carrier, but I think this one is very high ranked overall and definatly a top contender of the none Islay malts I tasted in the past.
