Tasting Notes

Nose

Butterscotch and bounty bars mixed with marzipan. Crisp toasty oak, bread crust. With water become grassy, tweedy with a whiff of juniper.

Palate

Fat, but slightly flat. The middle is floral (damp lily petals). Thins badly with water which is surprising at 50%.

Finish

Short.

Comment

Has a cleanliness and delicacy but lacking in impact overall. You expect complexity from old whiskies.
