Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose – Sweet, confectionary, old sweet shop, oranges, currants, also some fresh pollen and slight floral notes, hints of wine and spices. With water, buttery corn and vanilla aromas emerge.
Palate – Smooth, initial rich honeyed sweetness and dried fruits, candied orange peel and fresh grapes, followed by warming cinnamon spice in the centre of tongue. Some vanilla and hints of nutmeg. Smooth, creamy mouth-feel, but later becomes slightly watery and thin.
Finish – Crisp, dry sherry, and pronounced warming oak.
Fairly rich, fruity and sweet. A good level of complexity on the nose and palate, but the finish comes up a little short and simple, which I feel lets the whisky down a little.
