Tasting Notes and Scores
A well rounded sweet malt, with notes of chestnut, roasted almonds and a hint of pecan pie on the nose which give way to raisins, sultanas, toffee nougat and a touch of caramel coated hazelnut on the palate. This is beautifully balanced given the high alcohol content boasting a medium finish with hints of sweet oak. Ding Dong!
With a drop of water the liquid opens up and shows off its luscious fruit. The nutty almond notes give way to unctuous stewed apple and biscuit crumb on the nose. The palate keeps that chocolaty caramel nougat but is complemented by devilishly sweet sticky raisin with a touch of pine resin. The finish is all you would want from this Christmas malt, medium with touches of mince pie.
