A well knitted whisky. On the astringent side though
Blended Scotch Whisky
No age statement
Nose: Malty. Brown bread. Hint of praline. Good intensity. In the back, touch of Marmite and a kind of meaty oxtail broth note. Soft spices. Nutmeg.
Palate: Round, sweet. Orange gingerbread, Chamonix cakes, toffee apple. Oak frames the malty profile. Water enhances some oiliness.
Finish: Dry,slightly astringent.
Comment: A well knitted whisky. On the astringent side though
Nose: Kicks off with spirit and soil. This does develop over time to bring in some meaty notes and blackberry but the grain is driving force here.
Palate: Vanilla, spelt bread, salted butter and under ripe banana sit on a bed of toasted marshmallow and pine. Easy drinking.
Finish: More vanilla and earthy notes give a golden halo.
Comment: The air the day after a hippy festival leaves town. Scented and earthy.
