Tasting Notes from Dram Mor:
Nose: Honeyed sherry notes to start leading you to subtle vanilla with a gentle overlay of palm sugar maturing swiftly to cacao. A touch of sea salt and prune compote.
Palate: Complex and dry there’s liquorice with just a touch of linseed oil hiding behind it. Crisp and clean the flavours disappear quickly only to reemerge after a brief second for a big finish of rum ’n’ raisins. Great viscosity.
Finish: This whisky is all about the finish, there are tannins pulling in the cheeks, sweet black pepper and a hint of good sherry all belying the relatively sedate palate. The flavours grow until your mouth is filled with honey and plum brandy long after the dram is done. A grower not a shower.
