Michael Foggarty Notes
Spiced ginger candy. Seville oranges. A good dollop of oak, showing some aged whiskeys in the blend. Very creamy. Wait a few seconds and toasted coconut comes through.
If you can open your wallet and pay the hefty €180 a bottle, then do, it’s a great example of blending great whiskeys from a great distillery.
