A light and fragrant scent touches my nose with heavy butterscotch, orange extract and dried fruits. The nose on this whisky is light and sweet with subtle hints of the bitter elements of citrus fruits commonly associated with their peel. The scent of pineapple wafts up with some pair, softly inviting me to taste the whisky.
Oily on the palate with a rich texture that screams of smoky butterscotch and honeycomb, beautifully complimenting the nose in almost perfect harmony. Matching up nicely with the nose are also explosions of citrus, especially orange, and tropical fruits. Smooth and intense, a strong smokiness emerges but then its sheer intensity deadens the senses slightly detracting somewhat from the experience.
A vibrant and energetic warmth tickles my tongue and moves down my throat and into my esophagus. Remaining on my tongue are notes of lemon and orange extract, which eventually fade.
