Distiller: Apothecary Beverage Company
Bottler: Apothecary Beverage Company
Brand: Chemist Spirits
ABV: 45% ABV
Nose: Definite barrel character here – caramel, juniper, tobacco and pepper. Nice nutmeg note. Sweet cream, almost a hint of lemon.
Taste: Medium mouth feel, lots of cinnamon and toffee. Faint plum, honey, almond and a hint of creme brulee. Juniper is present and well integrated. Really coats the palate well.
Finish: Long finish, mellow but plenty going on. Cinnamon, toffee and a rich lemon + juniper combo carries deliciously.
Overall: Im going to give the nod to the Navy Strength in this flight of bottles, but this is very good from start to finish. This works so well as a whiskey analogue in cocktails and is really lovely to drink neat as well.
