Greg Dillon Notes
Caramac chocolate bars I recall from my childhood made of alternating caramel and wafer layers, covered in milk chocolate. There is a ripe fruitiness here too, pears specifically
definitely a whiskey to buy and have in the house, but I could have spent hours with the nose.
Michael Foggarty Notes
and pear much like it sibling.
Prickly heat almost like a fizzy drink as it glides across the palate. Very citrusy with some light raspberry tones. The classic pots still element arrives at the end.
Sometimes you shouldn’t write tasting notes for whiskeys, it’s almost better to just sit back and crack open the bottle and enjoy in one’s own company. This is a whiskey for that moment, no sharing, it’s all mine.
