"First impression on the nose is of a deeply sherried single malt then the candy notes drop back and the anise/cinnamon spice of the rye comes through. Hints of peach and apple peel present and soften to a beautiful fruit balance. Wash of maple, blackberry and apple with mild vanilla and pastry crème. A tang of anise (slight) and a velvet mouthfeel. Notes of pepper coat the tongue. Rich black tea astringent and Demerara sugar cubes finish."
