Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Notes

    Nose: Heady virgin oak bursting with lemon zest and sweet barley sugar with delicious notes of apple and nutmeg.

    Palate: A delightful sweetness evoking memories of candied fruits and vanilla toffee balanced with heather honey.

    Finish: A satisfying light spice with a rewarding burst of honeyed malt and sweet oakiness.

    Nicely done for an NAS. It fills a void. It's not your sherried Macallan, nor is it your fruity Tomatin or Glenfiddich. The oak comes through nicely and the candy flavor is well done as well.

    Very good whisky. Tastes sweet and clean. Neutral flavor unlike any other Scotch I've tried. Smells a little like a cheap blend but only a little. Don't buy this one for the nose. Finish is pleasant and lasts a long time. Nothing complex about the flavor but it tastes nice. Great neat but you could use it for a mixed drink if you didn't enjoy it straight. It's that neutral.

    At 46.3 % i found it harsh with it being so young. 40% may have been a better bet for this. At this strength it needs far more time to reach its potential. I do not think you can rush whisky like this.
