For those imbibers who relish a honeyed/caramel core to their whisky. If you prefer the more sinewy, definitive elements of oak or smoke, stay clear.
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Sweet and grainy, like cereal with honey. No discernible hints of wood, smoke or peat. A no-frills aroma, solid, likeable, undemanding.
Palate: Unabashedly sweet and near syrupy from palate entry through mid-palate. The sweetness is grainy, not fruity or flowery. Light-to-medium bodied.
Finish: Notes of caramel and nougat are featured in the ultra-sweet aftertaste.
Comment: For those imbibers who relish a honeyed/caramel core to their whisky. If you prefer the more sinewy, definitive elements of oak or smoke, stay clear.
Nose: Perfumy. Very fragrant smokiness.
Palate: Soft and light. Silky, oily peaty. A therapeutically medicinal relaxant.
Finish: Lemon-honey. Some late sweeetness. Late surge of gentle warmth.
Comment: Very gentle, but a precise clarity of flavours. Drink while listening to Vivaldi.
