Tasting Notes:
Colour: Coppery
Nose: Lightly toasted hazelnuts, Exotic fruits such as passion fruit and pineapple with roasted cereal notes.
Palate: The body of this whisky is initially watery but develops into a medium body, the longer one leaves it on the palate it grows further and get the hints of hazelnut shells, liquorice and exotic fruits. Sinks into the taste buds with a slight dryness.
Finish: Exotic fruits which has a medium finish but fades quickly and abruptly, leaves a sweet dryness on the palate of skins of sultanas.
