Medium bodied and flat carbonation. A sweetish, slight toffee, apple finish. You can really taste the whisky when you take the time to savour it, nice oak and toffee flavours. Not too alcoholic. Highly recommended.

330mL bottle from Slowbeer. BB NOV 16
Clear pale gold in colour.
Aromas of long-life apple juice, faint notes of toast, bread, pale caramel & apricots.
Quite sweet upfront, full body, light carbonation, dries out with a touch of tannin towards finish.
Good whack of sweet pale caramel/golden syrup upfront, get some yeasty (or whisky?!) notes of autolysisy bread crust/brioche thingy going on, accompanied by ripe apple flesh finishing up with a touch of wood & apricot, lingering dryness.
Good flavours, oak not prominent but adds to complexity.
