Tasting Notes by Youngupstart
N:It starts off pleasantly on toffee and soft vanilla. Peaches follow up but are slightly unripe and followed by a spiceiness pushing to be noticed. A buttery fruit medley with mild oak notes showing up. Syrupy apricot with a smooth nutty scent preface a dash of cinnamon. So far the nose is creamy and full of interest. B:Thick legs form on non-existant beads (very thick oil lip). The colour appears to be an off dark gold. T:Raw sugarcane and a hint of pineapple show up. Tropical fruit with soft spicy notes keeping up with the others. Brown sugar hangs on the sidelines, moving towards the more prominent notes. Orange peels are there to but hard to notice with a little bit of sulphur for a short period of time. The body is weak and thin on the palate which seems to be indicated on the nose. F:More sulphur notes with burnt vanilla, tar and more citrus. Light tropical fruit with a slightly bitter form of butterscotch. The finish is short than expected and is wispy/weak.
I have my qualms with this particular whisky due to it's price and inability to stride where an ultra premium whisky should. I may have to come back to this but for now it will sport a black mark in my book.
