Hard nose and lacking in individuality.
The Distiller's Reserve
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Harsh. Young and crisp with a mix of banana and Nutella and a hint of rubber.
Palate: Better than the nose with grass and unripe pear - tequila like in fact. Light and clean.
Finish: Firm but short.
Comment: Hard nose and lacking in individuality.
Nose: Sweet. Dried apricot, honey. Apples poached in a vanilla syrup.
Palate: Sweet. Fruity. Peach compote. Cream soda. Candied ginger.
Finish: Dry and mouth drying. Faint salted almonds.
Comment: That whisky would be a perfect companion for a seafood platter as it leaves a surprising salty sensation.
