ABV: 50% ABV
Source: Bottle, Tasting
Nose: Sweet honey, caramel, cotton candy. Clover, grassiness, toffee and confectioners sugar. Banana candy and light, faintly floral essence.
Taste: Medium mouthfeel, sweet toffee, confectioners sugar. Faint pepper, surprisingly oaky, and overall a very sweet dram.
Finish: Medium length, grassy essence returns, lots of toffee and sweet caramel.
Overall: This was really shockingly enjoyable. It ss perhaps a bit too sweet, but still very enjoyable nonetheless.
