Member Ratings and Notes
Sku
 
Nose:  light malt and fruit, some white wine notes.
Palate:  Syrupy and malty with a bit of an alcohol flavored tinge, which is surprising for its abv.  It's not that it's hot but that there is a sort of pure ethanol flavor to it.
Finish:  Alcohol fumes and not much else and not for very long.  

Sometimes you taste a closed distillery whisky and say, my God, what were they thinking when they closed this place?  With this one, not so much.   
Andy
 

n:  Delicagte and nice.  Honeysuckle.

 

p:  Slightly floral.  Gentle and simple but leaves fast (no finish)
