White pepper, a little sour and tangy note on a background of chocolate, raisins and citrus.
Winegums, lots of honey, some polished wood
Big, round, and sweet. Honey and sugar. Quite hot un-watered.
It's a quite different whisky from regular PX finishes, with the sherry influence being very subtle here. Would be hard to blindly put this as either a typical Deanston character or a PX finish, I think. I wanted a bit more sherry depth, but loved the finish. It's honey heavy, soft and pleasant.
