Nose: First off I get soft sherry notes, and something fresh and vegetal. Ook There's a hint of mustard seed. Time to dig in. After a while I pick up vegetable broth as well, and the mustard associations grow stronger. I had to raid the fridge for all our mustard, tried them all, and can Conclude thatthis nose reminds me (slightly) or French's Honey Mustard. Later still the nose is getting a bit warmer, with more fruit of the dark and ripe child, and it is a bit sweeter with less emphasis on the mustard notes. Fast forward another 30 minutes and I get almonds, vanilla sweetness and a deeper still. Quite a complex nose, I would say.
Taste: The immediate delivery is very powerful, it feels as if the ABV is higher than 43%. Not that there's any alcohol burn or anything like that, it just feels very full. Oily, and fruity. Lots of spices up front; pepper, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg.
Finish: Dark chocolate, fatty nuts, and oranges - slightly bitter oranges - or Is that a bit of orange zest? Imagine a very decadent and rich chocolate dessert with nuts, fruit and fruit juices. The finish is warm and medium to short in length.
Balance: As always with The Lost Distillery Company's whiskeys, this feels like a single malt. It is well-balanced, and stands well on its own two legs. You are never drawn into guessing what single malts make up the mix here - there's no need to do that.
