Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: vinous and little sweet/candied. An odd smell that really reminded me of vanilla sponge cake, there's also a subtle raisin note and few other little fruity accents
Palate: sticky golden syrup and the sponge cake persists. A little spicy but, for me, a little medicinal as well. This is very sweet and for me, doesn't really come together
Body: fairly harsh, not a big fan to be honest
Finish: again harsh and alcoholic. The tasting notes on the bottle suggest tropical fruits but I'm finding it hard to get on board with that.
I'm this whisky would be to plenty of people's taste; sadly, it is not to mine. I'm interested to try some other madeira finish whiskies to see if I take to them any better, or if its just a concept that doesn't agree with my palate!
