Colour: Deep gold.
Nose: Superb, even if it’s no big whisky. Beautiful notes of tropical fruits that is to say tangerines, mangos and passion fruits, blended with a little wood smoke, chocolate cake, orange marmalade, earl grey tea and old leather . Also hints of Virginia tobacco . Fantastic nose.
Mouth: It keeps going on, drier than on the nose but all the elements are still there. The tropical fruits are more discreet but there’s more smoke and straight peat and pepper. The middle is a tad weaker but it does take off again after that phase.
Finish: Long, half-peaty, half-malty, with an orangey afterglow.
