Tasting Notes by MaltGambit

I've yet to taste another dram that's taste can be so perfectly attributed to one food, an orange creamsicle. This dram is extremely complex and needs a fair amount of time to develop in the glass. dispite it's complexity the overarching creamsicle flavour dominates. When I first opened this bottle the nose was nearly undetectable and even time in the glass only did so much (hard to assess but complex once it opens up). I preferred it without water but with water the nose breaks apart the creamsicle into vanilla and mandarin orange flavours as well as increasing the irn bru notes. The mouthfeel became much creamier with toffee and more floral notes appearing.
