Stunning colour –deep orange brown, like maple leaves in glorious autumn sunshine! The nose had plenty of goodness, sticky toffee pudding, prunes and dates as well as salted chocolate pistachio brittle. On the palate neat spiced apple cake with brown sugar brandy sauce accompanied by mulled wine with cinnamon, dried orange peel, allspice and cloves. With water, aromas of rum and raisin chocolate brownies and raspberry almond fudge cake whilst to taste, sweet and sour black cherries with a dry, slightly bitter, yet very smooth finish. After 18 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky directly into a 1st fill PX hogshead.
