Mitchell's
70cl / 40%
Blended Scotch Whisky
A new signature blend from the Mitchell clan, owners of Springbank. Worth a look as it is based on Glengyle, which became the first distillery to open in Campbeltown for more than 125 years when it was re-established in 2000.

Tasting Notes:
Producer's Tasting Notes

Nose: Zesty lemon attack, fades to grain & toasted cereal.  Then orangey malt.  Brioche, some apricot  / peach esters, some grassiness, ginger, almond notes.  Light and pleasant.

Palate: Spicy, a bit dusty at first.  Medium-bodied, fairly rich, but there's a youthful edge, so slightly astringent.

Finish: Drying. Decent length, some nuttiness and appley fruit notes.  Unfortunate hint of wet cardboard aftertaste.

Comment: Comes across as a work in progress. The balance isn't there quite yet, and there are a couple of off notes, but also plenty of encouraging signs and this is a perfectly acceptable blend for the money.

I hesitate to buy, so if someone could comment on this "hint of wet cardboard aftertaste".I like lemony/citrussy whiskies so that's why this could be my target blend:)
