Aroma: Rich and luxurious nose of ripe red berries, dried figs, creme caramel and milk chocolate. The luscious sweetness sits above gentle cereal notes which emerge with time in the glass.
Palate: A very silky texture, this glides onto the tongue and then coats the mouth. Raspberry, figs, raisin and almonds leading to forest floor, fruit-and-nut chocolate with a gentle spice providing structure.
Finish: Red berries and sweet nutty notes return, with a subtle backbone of cracked pepper and cereal notes.
Distillers' Comments: A dance of tawny sweetness and classic NED notes. Rarely does corn whisky receive a tawny cask finish and this is a very unique experience, the brightness of the spirit has given the sweetness of the cask a vibrant dexterity. The nose is a showstopper and the palate is very soft for 50%, the cereal notes of the whisky maintaining a structure and length that's both satisfying and moreish.

"NED at a higher ABV definitely sings, and there's a lot to like here... the tawny finish has been really well managed - it's not overbearing in the slightest."
