This is quite an unusual tasting whisky, but not in a good way for me at all I'm afraid, much as I wanted it to be, as a Welsh whisky. It's the first madeira finish I've tried, and maybe it's just this style I don't like. The nose is a real candy-ish one, and there's just an over-powering and sickly sweetness to the palate. This sweetness is met by some unexpected very bitter notes in the finish, and there's never anything approaching a nice balance between the bitter and the sweet, reminding me somewhat of burnt sugar or treacle.
