Nosing: very light and delicate nose Apple with brown sugar. Nuts toasted almonds Almonds ,Cinnamon Spices christmas spices including Nutmeg . overrall very well balanced. Herb notes as well....sitting in glass longer it the nose is "thickening" so to speak, becoming more viscous and heavy.

Taste: Fruit Apple Green Apple Oak Raisin Nuts Cinnamon Nutmeg

Finish: Herb Oak Fruit

Comment: Real good stuff! There's a lot going on here, very well balanced. The baked apple notes combine with the spices and the balance of casks, all comes together to create something i honestly wasn't ready for! I found myself "chewing" this whisky too, not something i do unless a whisky has a lot of heft and character to it's body.
