Nose, Taste, Finish and Balance are graded out of 2.5 each:

Nose: A floral welcome, with pencil shavings scattered in the air like confetti. A buffet of tangerine syrup and sweet egg sushi is served up on yeasty bread. Somewhere underneath there's a rogue element of citrus washing up liquid which slightly undermines the otherwise enticing nose. 1.5

Taste: A medium-bodied sweetshop on the palate, with plenty of liquorice and ginger-snaps to add a bit of soft-spice balance to the indulgent fudge and chocolate nougat. 2.0

Finish: We stick around in the sweetshop for the finish, especially when sweet fizzing mango sherbet is on offer, not to mention a second helping of gloriously soft fudge. 2.0

Balance: Overall a very smooth and sweet offering, with plenty of defined and rich flavours to savour. A sweetshop it may be, however there is also a healthy balance of subtly spiced notes on offer, from the pencil shavings on the nose, to the ginger on the palate, and the soft fizz on the finish. A very subtle contribution it may be, however it offers the necessary backbone to this whisky that without it would otherwise be the kind of sweetshop experience that leaves you with a toothache. 2.0
