words Of Whisky
It's the balance that makes this whisky. Beautiful stuff. I forgot, but I believe I got this some from Dirk? Whoever it was, thanks for sharing!
Oy, that's a lot of orange. Cointreau, but also more vibrant orange zest. Oh, and there's plums too. Pretty intense. Hints of marzipan too, as well as melted butter and beeswax. There's a touch of shoe polish, and just a whiff of peat smoke, and paraffin.
Sweet. Honey comb, orange peel, orange marmalade, and a touch of menthol that goes a long way. Some more marzipan and warming cinnamon, but also a whiff of wood smoke, resin, shoe polish and maldon salt. The balance is beautiful.
Lingering resin notes, accompanied by subtle citrus and a whiff of smoke.
