Not much left...
Presentation : Open cardboard box, some distillery information, clear dumpy bottle with wooden topped
cork stopper
Source : Whisky shop in Soller in Majorca
Price : £35 many outlets

Characteristics : 700ml, 43% ABV, NAS
Box/Bottle Information : "Ripe Fruits, citrus, vanilla, hints of spice."

Colour : Pale Gold.
Glance : Oily, leaves thin trails when swirled around the glass.
Nose : Masses of Vanilla with faint citrus : oranges and lemons.
Palate: Oranges floating in Golden Syrup, smooth spicy.
Finish : Drying spicy finish - more of the Syrup.

Overall : I picked this up whilst on holiday in Majorca a few years ago from a tiny whisky shop on a back street of a small village.I was attracted by the dumpy bottle and small 'hand written' style label. As you can see from the photo there's not much left! It's an inexpensive NAS but well worth exploring - who doesn't like Golden Syrup and I'm sure this dram is made by diluting it!
