Easy-going, but nothing to get too excited about.
Gordon & MacPhail
No age statement
Year of Bottling
Nose: Gold. Dry spices, garam masala/coriander powder. Reminds me of an old trunk in the loft. There's some chocolate/biscuity notes, burnt orange and spent matches. Undemanding stuff.
Palate: Clean and lightly malty. Slightly dry with a little bitterness on the side of the mouth.
Comment: Easy-going, but nothing to get too excited about.
Nose: Sherry. Rubbery. Lilac.
Palate: Sherry prevails. Burnt oak. Slightly sulphurous. Touch of chestnut.
Finish: Surprisingly discreet for what could be expected from a sherried malt.
Comment: Sherry influence calls the tune. Water calms the flavours down.
