8.0
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: A disappointingly dirty, off aroma more akin to a curry than a single malt.
Palate: Much better than the nose suggests but beyond a sweet maltiness it doesn't travel far before something thin and not quite right makes an entry.
Finish: Malty with vanilla but very little depth.
Comment: One to forget.
5.5
