Nose: A lovely melange of red fruit (berries of all sorts) as well as spices, mostly on cinnamon and clove, with a nice touch of smoke that has become the BR trademark (at least for me), a quite earthy yet meaty smoke, with additional malt and further fruit.
Palate: More red fruit, as the nose suggests, with more spice, pepper, cinnamon and yet another wave of fruit, with raspberries, citrus and a hint of chocolate.
Finish: The finish is filled of BBQed fruit, with some smoke, and a lingering touch of spice.
This is a very nice whisky, however it does not rise up to the hights of the 10 year old / 100 proof. For those who like a fruity touch with the smoke, it’s an interesting alternative. I for once, will remain loyal to the 10 year old, in this price range.
