Whisky Tasting Notes
Rick's tasting notes
Nose: Buttery with a hint of popcorn, with sweet and refreshing notes of pear, parsnip, peaches and fragrant lavender.
Palate: Green apples at first, with an earthy hint of smoke and walnuts, a wonderful layer of blueberries before the finish sets in.
Finish: Lively and crisp. A sweet wave of apples, pears and oranges, with a youthful edge of lemon and cream. This medium to long finish slowly fades into earthy notes with lavender, cinnamon and orange zest.
Ed's tasting notes
Colour: Natural colour, deep bronze, almost like loose-leaf tea. It leaves a pronounced tide mark in my glass, dotted with lots of little tears. They develop slowly, as they sink down the side of my glass. It looks oily and viscous.
Nose: Freshly ground coffee next to soft muscovado sugar. A leather tobacco pouch. Buttery oat and treacle flapjack, washed down with real ale. Star anise, cinnamon, pepper. There is a touch of heat, but it isn't overpowering. Considering the ABV is over 60, the alcohol seems well integrated.
Palate: Medium to full mouthfeel, velvety. Plums, blackberries and blueberries macerated in soft brown sugar. Pears soaked in red wine spiced with cloves and star anise. A nutty back note. The alcohol adds body and viscosity, and again is well integrated.
Finish: Long finish. Coffee, with orange and almond chocolate on the side. Cinnamon and a little chilli warmth.
About Single Note
Scotch whisky and jazz music are Rick van Diepen's passions. Rick has been a whisky enthusiast since the 2005, when he did an exchange program in Edinburgh. He joined the University's whisky society and visited distilleries across Scotland. So he decided to follow his dreams and launch his own Independent Bottler: Single Note Whisky.

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.
