A rough and ready youngster that shouldn't have been let out on its own.

Year of Bottling
Nose: Ice cream and caramel but with water, dirty murky note.
Palate: Scrungey, flat and immature.
Finish: Not nice.
Comment: A rough and ready youngster that shouldn't have been let out on its own.
Nose: Peaty,earthy. An animal note,like the straw from the cowshed. A slight custardy aroma brings in a\rsweet touch.
Palate: Smooth at start,then alcohol tickles the tongue but remains quite tame. A fresh aniseed flavour.\rSweet grassiness.
Finish: Dry, fresh, with a slight astringency.
Comment: A solid dram. Rough and ready. The malty sweetness helps balancing the high strength. Invigorating.
