Tasting notes
Nose: This is a big bucket of butterscotch. Behind that massive wall there are notes of vanilla and a layer of harsh grain spirit. There’s a metallic note in the back together with a small hint of salted peanuts. It’s very mild and easy on the nose.

Mouth: Very mild start, again with the massive butterscotch and vanilla flavours. There’s an aspartam sweetness and a bitterness both sitting in the back. There’s still a metallic layer coating the mouth and notes of the harsh grain spirit is still coming through the pretty butterscotch. This is very one-dimensional.

Finish: The Butterscotch and vanilla dominates from the start, but they are soon replaced by a dry, very bitter oakiness. It’s not a very pleasant oakiness and the bitterness clashes with the remaining butterscotch note. The metallic layer is still coating the mouth long after everything else disappeared. This is drinkable neat but should be used as a mixer.
