Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Finish This just keeps coming, turf, figs, dates & Christmas pudding. lots of cigar leaf but there seems to be a real lathery texture among that deep peaty smoke with very light citrus notes and even coconut flakes.
Tasting Notes from the Producer
Aromas (without water) Treacle, Fruit Salad Sweets at the start, then with apricot, Lemon and Pineapple coming to the fore, not forgetting the Atlantic turf fire in the background with coconut & Christmas pudding mix before baking.
Flavour The same as the last time Crumbly Wensleydale, that wensleydale you get with fruit, maybe bits of dried apricot, lemon and figs. Ahh that loving turf note that we all know.
