The Horizon Tasting Notes
Official tasting notes
Nose: Mouthwatering brown sugar and ripe tropical fruits.
Taste: Melting pot of malted honey, oak depth, silk rum, vanilla and caramelised banana.
Finish: Buttery toffee with orange zest.
Ed's tasting notes
Colour: Pale straw. Holds a high tide mark on my glass, before multiple little legs slowly start to form and sink down the sides of my copita.
Nose: A delicate, floral nose with melon, vanilla, and citrus notes including lemon. A gentle, soft malt note in the back.
Palate: A smooth mouthfeel. Vanilla cream, more melon and lemon are joined by bananas. Perhaps a very soft vanilla fudge sweetness.
Finish: A medium finish which crescendos through that vanilla cream on the palate, to a little wood spice, and then leaves my mouth feeling refreshed and ready for another sip.

What about taxes?
All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.
UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.
We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.
For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs.
Which couriers do you use?
In the UK we use Royal Mail, Parcelforce and APC. US orders are sent via UPS. International orders use FedEx and DHL.
