Finest Matured Whisky
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Sylvestry. Wet leaves, humus. Cooked mushrooms. Chicken broth. With aeration, carries on creamier notes. Vanilla custard.
Palate: Round, almost syrupy. Then orange marmalade. Stem ginger.
Finish: Warm. Oaky, bitter orange.
Comment: A good development, even if astringence shows up at times.
Nose: Singed grass moving into sulphur (boiled cabbage). Earthy with some estery notes, black peppercorn, nuts.
Palate: Clean and rounded and vanilla soft from the oak with pumpkin seed crispness coming from the cereal.
Finish: Finishes half way up the palate.
Comment: A theme seems to be emerging. Light spirit, plenty of oak, not long enough in cask to mellow.
