Spicebox Spiced Whisky

Spicebox Spiced Whisky, 35% abv

At 35% this is not a "whisky". It is more like a whisky liqueur. Sweet vanilla and marshmallows dominate the nose and the palate. There was a hint of spice as well on the palate. Just screams at you to be poured over an Angel cake or added to a coffee or cup of tea. Made a good counterpoint to a cup of Darjeeling tea on a cool and wet afternoon. Something for a mixologist's toolkit.
