NOSE: Cinnamon fireballs and Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal. Cinnamon is the focus and not much else makes its way through the spicy onslaught.
PALATE Sweet, spicy and alarmingly drinkable – much less fiery than those nose suggests. It has a big hit of cinnamon, a pleasant heat and lots of flavour, but doesn't take the fire too far. It's thick and oily in texture, with brown sugar and butter underneath the cinnamon and spice.
FINISH Cinnamon biscuits, more cereal and a hint of barrel char to balance out the sweetness.
COMMENT While not wanting to destroy my whisky-connoisseur reputation any more than I already have, this is my favourite of the cinnamon whiskeys on the market. It's got a concentrated cinnamon core but doesn't go too far in terms of heat, while also having a rich, rounded and sweet background for when the heat fades.
