This is an easy sipper, something with enough complexity to be interesting, but not one to make you question the meaning of whisky.
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: A woodwork studio on a hot day. Resinous. Apple crumble straight out of the oven, powdered almonds and suntan oil. Dark berry compote sneaks in.
Palate: Smooth, but with a richness of dark berries. Verging on Black Forest gâteau. A hint of leather books, pencil shavings and coffee.
Finish: Long and warm with chopped walnuts, toasted brioche buns and plum jam.
Comment: This is an easy sipper, something with enough complexity to be interesting, but not one to make you question the meaning of whisky.
Nose: Delicate orchard fruits. Pencil case aromas: mostly shavings, but also white tack and felt-tip pen. Some very delicate florals, perhaps honeysuckle.
Palate: Light bodied. Very well-integrated malt and grain. Lovely poached apple and pear notes with custard, pie crust and whipped cream. A little coconut ice and milk chocolate. The hint of florality too.
Finish: Short and sweet. Ends on vanilla biscuit.
Comment: A very quaffable dram indeed.
