Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Light for all its colour-attractive green fresh grain with some caramel.
Palate: Lively. A deep grain middle on which the most delicate of malt notes hang. Firm, but deliciously sweet.
Finish: Chewy with a strong build up of oak, suggesting decent age.
Comment: Enjoyable if simplistic, the grain holds power here. An attractive session whisky.
7.8
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Soft, rounded. Polished walnut.
Palate: Smooth, malty, honeyish, slightly syrupy.
Finish: Honeyish. A touch of orange.
Comment: Very easily drinkable. Well matured, as the label suggests. Enjoyable. Appetising. Slightly drier with a splash of water, but not too much. Too good for a mizuwari.
7.8
