Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Nose Distinct cocoa and mocha overtones on the nose with hints of dried apricots, orange peel and marshmallow.
Palate At full strength it is surprising soft and smooth. Crisp and mouthwatering with a spice laden palate, a touch of bittersweet fruit, marmalade and toffee apples. When reduced with water it is more citrusy on the nose with some estery, fruit aromas being released. More fruit again on the palate with a soft and velvety texture and those citrus characters dominating. The finish becomes more chocolatey with some dusty oakiness making an appearance.
Colour Pale gold/bronze colour
