Honey, citrus, lemon pastille sweets, bread dough. Lemons… it’s very lemony! Has a crisp dry cider quality.
Cider like on the palate with malt and grain, honey and citrus. There’s some sherry in there and it’s a lovely mouthfeel. Tastes refined and fresh.
It’s long with lots of sherry, apples and some spice.
Really great. It just tastes so well made. It’s not super complex but it’s a well-refined whisky and for the price, there are not many better.
I do think if this was bottled at 43% ABV it would be a lot better though.
It’s similar to the 15, in fact, I would say it’s just as good as the 15 but for less money. There are loads of really good Scotch whiskies to choose from that are similar to this, like several Speysides, but they can be very similar which is where this one has a slight edge as it is a little different.
Excellent as a daily drinker with some uniqueneess and should definitely be a part of your collection.
