This vibrant evocation of Dufftown’s fruity character bursts with notes of fresh red berries and sweet vanilla aromas thanks to the influence of European oak casks.
Alcohol Content: 40%
Appearance: Rich amber. Striking.
Nose: Ripe bananas, then soft, plump and delicate, with dried orange peel. As it opens up there’s ripe red apple, and a note of vibrant cut grass or pine resin.
Palate: Syrupy and noticeably tongue-coating. Initial notes of barley malt and green grass soon soften into fruitier jam and plum skins before a firmer structure takes over.
Finish: Sweet and minty, then agreeably smooth; elegant, rich and oaky with velvety chocolate and a creamy hint of coconut, leading to a faintly smoky, aromatic conclusion with orange oil, oak and cedar.
Review: “A high proportion of European oak cask matured whisky has been used to produce Tailfire … excellent choices for a whisky beginner, while also having enough depth to maintain the interest of more seasoned whisky drinkers.” – www.whiskyforeveryone.com, 2014
