Marked down for that cabbagey character - right back to school dinners.
Aged 12 Years
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Pencil erasers, a faint peat, tropical fruit, and a little chalkiness. A slightly vegetal note crept in, almost cabbagey.
Palate: A pleasing rounded maltiness, followed by a crisp mineral-like character.
Finish: Slightly sicky.
Comment: Marked down for that cabbagey character - right back to school dinners.
Nose: Fat and buttery to start, then a weird vegetal note emerges alongside something akin to a flat sports drink (Lucozade/Pokari Sweat?) then sulphur, heavily chlorinated swimming pools, cheese and sour baby vomit (ie butyric). Mmmm!!
Palate: Oily and a little rubbery coconut.
Finish: Sadly long.
Comment: The oak trying to cover a very poor spirit.
