This will be my last tasting note from Cinderella Whisky Fair 2015. I tasted this little gem at Svenska Eldvatten. Svenska Eldvatten is a Swedish independent bottler. In addition they carry some bottlings from Creative Whisky Company, amongst others.

Nose (22/25): Nice and sweet with a lot of vanilla and different candies. I think of marshmallows and fudge. Salt.
Taste (23/25): Rich (really rich) and sweet. Vanilla, fudge and salt. Maybe some brown sugar. Straight forward, no fuzz ;)
Finish (22/25): Sweet and a bit watery. Vanilla and fudge. Quite short.
Balance (23/25): Smooth and sweet, all the way. I see that my tasting note says sweet, sweet, sweet, but I can assure you that this whisky is so rich that it does not feel too sweet at all.
