A very young, new-make like whisky. On the bitter side. A fresh nose isn't enough.
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Very young, drying hay. Quite refreshing with a minty whiff. A hint of butterscotch.
Palate: Smooth and sweet at start. Leafy. Green wood takes over, developing on bitter notes.
Finish: Quite short, not especially elegant. Nutty flavours cheer up a somewhat astringent aftertaste.
Comment: A very young, new-make like whisky. On the bitter side. A fresh nose isn't enough.
Nose: For starters, it's clear. Very light and clean, verging on neutral. Hint of vanilla. Flat ginger ale. Water brings out a sulphury, new make note.
Palate: Very sweet and smooth-almost too sugary and slick.
Comment: Is this whisky? I know the industry needs to 'convert' vodka drinkers but this is ridiculous.
