Finish: Medium. Leather, lemons, oranges, peaches.


Fruity and spicy, this whisky is wound through with something fermented and sour. It's not unpleasant though, rather, it's leathery, and even slightly cheesy. I don't get loads of cheese as per the regulation tasting notes, instead it's quite gentle, even creamy.


I like this.
