Has nothing to be ashamed of, but could do with more action at the front end.
The Queen of the Moorlands
12 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Compact cereals at first: develops a background of summer fruits in the local greengrocers shop. A trace of lemony freshness. Perhaps some menthol?
Palate: Light, but a little creamy. Jammy? Cream cakes? Still menthol in there.
Finish: Fairly short and quite sharp.
Comment: Has nothing to be ashamed of, but could do with more action at the front end.
Nose: Flat, dull oak. Reminds me of school blackboards (chalk dust, oak). In time a light hay/cereal note. Lot of cask.
Palate: As light as a feather. Some sweetness, some light fruit.
Comment: There's just not a lot happening.
