Tasting Notes from Spirits Castle:
Nose: Initial nose is full of peppery spice, but once the whisky settles, aromas of honey, vanilla cream and tropical fruits (mangoes, peaches) appear. After a while, you get a hint of dried grass/hay.
Palate: Sweet and fruity with some pepper at first, then tropical fruits and honey come on strong. The vanilla cream creeps in behind the honey, and if you are paying attention, ripe mango aroma surfaces just at the top of all that lovely notes.
Finish: Long finish of fruits with a hint of oak that lingers long after the whisky is gone.
