Whyte & Mackay Tasting Notes.

NOSE: Soft, elegant & refined. Soft aromas of crushed apple, pear and fresh pineapple arouse the senses. The spirit is exciting and vibrant with lovely notes of oak shavings that release touches of buttery vanilla, creamy caramel and nutmeg. A hint of marmalade, cinnamon and a little hint of smoke, ginger and muscovado sugar completes this spectrum of delight.

PALATE: This spirit has plenty of impact on the palate but in a mild warming manner. Harmonious and exhilarating. Whispers of gentle bonfire smoke slowly give way to spicy rich toffee, treacle and pecan nuts. These enticing flavours linger lovingly on the palate but are soon combined by a, complex array of creme brulee, orange rind and freshly baked bread. 

FINISH: Lingering it has a remarkable tapestry of tantalising taste sensations which truly rewards. This is a limited release of 50,000 bottles, and £5 from each bottle will be donated to the Antarctic Heritage Trust.
