Tasting Notes from Dram Mor:
Nose: You’d expect apple but this is almost overwhelming, from opening the bottle to the first pour the air is filled with the scent of somewhat Granny Smith apple. Once the apple has had its way, it disappears to leave a surprisingly light, white floral note with a touch of barley sugar.
Palate: Again apple, but this time caramelised in butter and served with toffee, delightfully sweet, thankfully with a refreshing quince-like tartness and a touch of red spice.
Finish: A brief, powerful explosion of anise, crunchy apple and oak that develops into a long, clean earthy finish that linger peculiarly at the back of the palate, tickling the throat.
