Colour: Lemon tea

Nose: Banana custard, lemon meringue, blueberry, cheesecake sweetness and layers of vanilla. Very pleasant and light yet complex. Top notch.

Palate: Spicy, cakey, slightly bitter… lives up to the nose.

Finish: Burst of espresso, lovely and powerful.

Overall: I have been looking forward to tasting this whisky since December. It is every bit as good as I expected it to be. It shows great maturity without overoaking, a truly rare breed. Full marks for the packaging too. Unfortunately it’s quite severely overpriced.

Person: Elizabeth Hurley – Refined and voluptuous . Dirty round the edges. High maintenance.
