Clear, pale golden.
Honey, golden syrup and corn oil with French baguette, green apple skin, and aoverripe tropical fruit/white peach. Pinch of cinnamon spice.
Sweet vanilla and caramel with buttery oak, white fruit and a pinch of spice - nutmeg and cinnamon.
Honeyed sweet corn oil with cinnamon, nutmeg and a hint of ginger and black pepper. Sweet and easy - the training bra of whiskies.
Diffordsguide rating - 4.5/5
Sweet, appetising and organic nose. Sweet with vanilla, dried banana chips, and coconut oil. Bourbon-y sweetness that gets the mouth wet in anticipation. Organic like fresh corn, green tomatoes, chlorophyll.
Mmm, buttery and fruity. Toasty. Caramel. Almonds with a twist of watery lemonade. Honeyed finish with a tinge of those organic notes found on the nose.
Superficial stuff first, I like the bottle design (like the Arran Anniversary shape) and the cork is fat and tight giving a nice loud sssquuueeepft when you open it. This is a light, fresh, and invigorating whisky that is perfect for a summer day. Very bourbon-y without any of the harder tannins but might be a bit sweet and cloying for some people or even for some moods. Could do well in a cocktail in place of bourbon, or even rum. Yet more evidence that great things can come from the world of grain whisk(e)y.
