The Willett 6 year is the infant of the Willett offerings we stock, but it is a big boy. At over 60% abv, this takes a healthy splash of water or a few ice cubes to bring it down into less challenging terrain. Once that’s accomplished, it softens nicely and the overall impression is of lush, sweet fruit, particularly peach, but also with a slightly woodsy, cherry dimension. That last combines with the vanilla, cinnamon and brown sugar notes to create an impression almost of cherry pie with a long, supple finish. Attractive stuff!
