Hard to believe this is a whisky. Closer to a rum.
6 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Sweet and sugary. Cane syrup with a hint of liquorice and barley sugar. The sweetness reminds more of a liqueur than a whisky.
Palate: Sweet with a strong Demerara flavour. A rum in disguise? More burning than spicy.
Finish: Bittersweet, not holding long but leaves an astringent aftertaste.
Comment: Hard to believe this is a whisky. Closer to a rum.
Nose: Medium intensity, slightly leafy with a hint of caraway. In time a youthful edgy note is added. Green with water, quite hard. Green garden twine. Plant like.
Palate: Soft start only getting some grip in the centre and then builds in intensity to the finish. Better neat than diluted. A bit rigid and slightly.
Finish: Metallic on the finish.
Comment: Nothing to write home about.
