"Amber in hue – sun-bleached mahogany. A savoury aroma overall, with a suggestion of sage and onion stuffing, on a lightly sweet and slightly vinegar base (apple sauce). The taste combines light sweetness with a savoury finish – a trace of white chocolate in the aftertaste. A drop of water introduces a dusty, linen note; the taste is now more savoury."
Charles MacLean, Whiskeria Summer 2020.
