Tasting notes by Billy A
Freshly varnished wood, model glue and polish – classic old grain whisky character. Behind those lighter notes sits a mature dram: salted caramel and vanilla toffee spiced up with freshly cracked black pepper.
Rich and thick toffee, more sea salt, and baked apples studded with raisins. As it develops in the glass, concentrated fruity flavours start to come to the front – orange squash (with real fruit) and unsweetened blackcurrant juice.
Lots of spice – liquorice root and cinnamon – fading through nutmeg to a gently tannic and pleasantly sour end.
A well-looked-after grain whisky – at this age, the cask influence can often become too much, but this whisky shows the toffee character of American oak and well-balanced spice without going too far.

Fantastic. Very smooth with great levels. Definitely a sipping Whisky. No water or ice for this one.
Outstanding single grain!
