Review by The Lost Distillery

Colour

Pale amber.

Nose

A relatively closed nose; clean and fresh, with traces of linen and herbal fabric freshener. Laura Ashley? After a while a light, spicy prickle emerges, topping a fruity/doughy note: apple dumpling, made with suet and dusted with nutmeg. With a drop of water the paper note advances, joined by warm leatherette and a trace of steam.

Palate

Smooth texture, sweet taste and a surprising amount of smoke in the finish – more coal smoke/steam engine than peat smoke. An unusual, antique taste, which holds up well with a drop of water, although the smoky element is reduced.

Note

Interesting and vaguely ‘old fashioned’, especially without water.
