Taste...On the palate this was big and dark, smouldering and rich,  sweet dark chocolate, treacle toffee, dates, fragrant wood spices, evoking dark but cosy secrets.
FinishA long finish with succulent honey and a chocolate coated mouth feel

Well, well this is one of the finest English Whiskies I have tasted and priced at only £63.95, this is a little gem.
