Tasting Notes by McGrain
Physically. It's a beautiful bottle. I want to believe I'll stick a candle in it or something when I'm done but I probably won't...the bourbon is dark and honeyed looking, very alluring. I love whisky bottles and the different shapes and sizes, but a part of me wishes every whisky came in one like this. Once you've had your first dram, put the stopper back in and tilt the bottle. The sound is the sound of whisky to me. If I was judging it purely on ear and eyes this would be a score of 100!
Nose: Tiramisu. Rum&Raisin ice-cream. Caramel.
Mouth:Minty, fruity, sweet but I can't put my finger on that sweetness. So lively in the mouth it almost seems to fizz for one half of a second. Then burnt brown sugar (maybe a little more than you'd want).
After:Caramel/toffee re-emerges. Warming, lasting, but a little bit to sweet for my Scottish palate.
