Killowen Official Tasting Notes:
Nose Fruit Salad Sweets at the start, then with apricot, Lemon and Pineapple coming to the fore, not forgetting the Atlantic turf fire in the background.
Palate Crumbley Wensleydale, that wensleydale you get with fruit, maybe bits of dried apricot, lemon and maybe even buts of blueberry if it was ever made that way.
Finish This for us, is where the whiskey champions itself, yes there is cigar leaf but there seems to be a powdery texture among that deep peaty smoke and very herbal but again with that citrus crumbly cheese.
