This whisky is part of our whisky world beaters tasting. It surprised us all at the Whisky Tasting Club. In fact, it made the final of our own Whisky World Cup in July where it gave some of the worlds big hitters one hell of a contest.

Nose: Rich and welcoming, but complex, with some candy stick, sandalwood, leather saddle and soft toffee. Some musk and five spice in the mix. Palate: some youthful notes but with a beguiling mix of candy stick, glacé cherries, sweetcorn, mint toffee, hickory, and raspberries. Finish: rich, full and sweet with only a nod to spicy rye.

this whisky is not cheap, but its worth trying. In many ways its quite different to American rye.

They have just bottled a peated whisky which I'm keen to try.
