Nose: A big hit of red grapes and a subtle raspberry. Sweet marmalade, Victoria sponge cake topped with icing sugar. nutty milk chocolate, honeycomb and a little earthiness from chives.
Palate: Orange citrus from blood oranges, crunchy honeycomb, stewed plums, custard cream biscuits and a light earthy spice of cloves.
Finish: More blood oranges and stewed plums, with ground ginger and a peppery spice. A long lasting light smokiness.
: I’ve revisited this dram a couple of times (see here
), with slightly different notes each time. What is consistent, however, is the red grapes, honeycomb, and orange zest. This is a fruity and affordable dram for whisky lovers and novices alike.
