Tasting Notes by BARutledge
There are no surprises with this scotch. For the most part, what you smell... is what you taste... is how it finishes. The flavors and aromas from this scotch remind me of my favorite dessert and tropical fruits. It puts off some heat, but is not particularly smokey. Somewhat similar results come from drinking out of a snifter vs. drinking from a scotch tumbler. Very smooth, sweet, and easy to drink...
From scotch tumbler, small splash of water Nose-20: very clean, leather, orange, malt, white sugar Palate-22: warming cherry wood, peach, mango, prickly orange, pecan pie, pie crust Finish-21: lingering leather, fruity heat, butter cookies, peach tea Balance-24: so so smooth, thick, but not syrupy Overall-87:
