Tasting Notes

Nose

Perfumed – jasmine, old roses, with light floral honey and golden syrup. Fabric softener. Very sweet. Green apples and straw – hay-barns – pencil-shavings and green tea.

Palate

Syrupy and sweet at with custard creams and vanilla custard. Sweetness drops sharply, and it becomes more grungy affair: dry, dusty, cloying, bitter and acidic.

Finish

Sweet, spicy, peppery, with specks of ash, nutmeg and black pepper.

Comment

Tired wood, possibly, but an entertaining whisky despite that.
